How We Fit Kitchen Worktops

There’s so much more to fitting worktops than just turning up to your house with a slab of granite or quartz and installing it on your units.

Deciding on your worktops

The first point of contact is usually our website, where you can find all the information about our services, worktops and examples of previous installations. We have an online quote form that you input your worktop sizes, which worktop(s) you like and any extras you are interested in such as sinks and taps, drainer grooves, upstands, splashbacks and pop-up sockets.

If you need any advice or would prefer to deal with a person our friendly staff are on hand to answer your questions and offer advice. We also have a showroom with samples of all the worktops so you can pop in and see what they look like up close. We will send out samples if you’re too far away to visit.

Once you’ve decided on your worktop, which is a mammoth job in itself as there are so many beautiful designs to choose from, we will be able to give you a price for the job. We aren’t like a lot of worktop installers in that we don’t ask for a deposit. We’re so confident that you’ll be delighted with your finished worktops that we only ask for payment when everything is completed to your satisfaction.


The next stage is a visit by one of our expert installers to create a template of your kitchen that will be used to cut your worktops to their exact specifications. We carefully measure out all the templates to ensure cutouts are properly placed, upstands are the correct height and width, and any extra features are accounted for. This is particularly important in older homes when walls may not be straight.

Meanwhile your chosen worktops will have been ordered from the supplier if we don’t have them in stock.

Cutting and Finishing

Once we receive the worktops we use our state-of-the-art equipment to cut out your worktops to your exact measurements so that they fit perfectly. Our years of experience are invaluable when it comes to precision quartz and granite cutting.


Then comes the final stage, the install! We expertly install your worktops using high-quality glues and sealants for the perfect finish. We have honed our skill over the years, work with minimum fuss and mess, and treat your home with the utmost respect. We appreciate the odd cuppa, and maybe a biscuit just to keep us running smoothly :).

Once your worktops are installed we will ask you to inspect them to ensure you are 100% satisfied with the quality of our workmanship. Then it’s over to you to finsih off the decorating.

We love to receive photos of peoples finished kitchens to add to our gallery and to share on social media, and appreciate it when our clients leave us glowing reviews on Google, Facebook or directly to us. It makes our job so worthwhile and makes us happy 🙂

The kitchen in the images is for a colleague, the worktops are Fugen Stone Carrara and the features include upstands, drainer grooves and an undermount sink. The island is a great focal point that adds seating and storage as well as the all-important wine fridge!
