- Our Products
4.1. What our Products include. Our Products include made to order to measure worktops as well as related (optional) delivery and installation services.
4.2. All our worktops are made to your specification and order: Our worktops are designed by choosing your preferred material, colour, edge finish etc as well as your required dimensions.
4.3. Our Products are bespoke. Since our worktops are bespoke to order Products and some Products use natural materials the images of worktops and sinks are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the components, colour and texture of materials accurately, we cannot guarantee that such images fully reflect the colour or texture or appearance of the finished worktop. Your worktop may vary slightly from those images. In addition, there may be small differences in any sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website or stated in your order, to those finished products.
4.4. Ordering samples: Variations in colour may be an inherent natural characteristic of the Products that we sell and therefore no guarantee can be given that the colour will not vary from the colour of any samples, nor that your worktop will be free from natural marking or veining. The sample represents a small part of an original slab. It gives indication of the colour and structure as the visual perception may change when the piece is full size.
4.5. Delivery and installation service: Our standard order includes a template, delivery and installation service which will be included in the price quoted. If you do not require the template and installation services and wish to opt to delivery only, we can remove the template and installation fee; delivery only worktops are subject to receiving accurate technical drawings and practicality of the project.
4.6. Accurate measurements of the worktops. We provide you with a quotation based on the measurements and requirements you give us, please check all items are listed on the quotation and our interpretation of your sizes or plans are correct. You accept that the total price in your Quotation is subject to confirmation following template/site survey and that the total price may vary following template to reflect the exact measurements and any other changes to your order that were made during template.
4.7. Validity of the Quotation. All quotations are valid for 30 days from the date of issue.
5.1. Quartz and Granite Worktops
5.1.1 The composition of Quartz and Granite natural based products means that the variances can occur in colour, tonality and particle structure. The performance of the worktops are not in any way diminished because of these variances and therefore any worksurfaces that vary in any aspect to either a sample seen or within the same order will not be deemed to be defective.
5.1.2. Due to the composition of the Quartz materials some of the products offered may exhibit small clusters of dark spots creating a patchy appearance which is not considered a fault or does it affect the durability of the worktop.
5.2. Acrylic Solid Surface Worktops
5.2.1. Acrylic Solid Surface joins will feel seamless and will appear inconspicuous. However certain colours such as Directional colours and Veined colours may not match up perfectly so the joins may be more visible. (Directional and Veined colours will be specified if you request a price in these colours)
5.2.2. Square Upstands: if upstands are required these can only be manufactured in straight lines, therefore if they are fixed to a back wall that is not straight and true gaps will be evident in place which should be filled using decorators caulk. Square upstands will always show a seam line as they are 2 separate pieces.
5.2.3 Coved Upstands: these are fabricated in the factory and are fitted to the back of the worktops in the factory and will be fitted so that they run in a straight line. There may be gaps at the back of the upstands which will require filling with decorators caulk. If the walls are not square and are out in sections, the Templater may advise to use Square upstands as these can be run point to point and will work better in certain areas. The size of the gap will be dependent how true the walls are compared to the upstands. Coved upstands may also show bruising or a slight difference in colour at the base of the upstands due to the fabrication process, especially on the colours that have larger granules or strong patterns.
5.2.4. Thermal insulation tape is included around hob cut outs as standard to prevent heat conduction through surfaces.

6.3. What is required for a successful template: You or a designated representative must be on site to confirm your worktop details e.g. thickness, colour, edge detail etc. All base units are to be fixed in their final position and level(or any structure/frame in place and fixed that will be supporting the worktop if this is not for a kitchen), all unsupported areas must be suitably support with battens where units are not present e.g. behind free standing appliances. End panels must be in place and fixed, anything that requires a cut out must be onsite, any existing worktops must be removed, all sinks, taps and hobs are to be disconnected and removed with existing worktops.
