Granite Worktop Template
The templating process is a crucial step in installing any new kitchen worktop. It involves creating a precise template of the area where the new worktop will be installed and sited. This template serves as a guide for the cutting and shaping of the natural or engineered stone slab to ensure an accurate fit and finish.
Our skilled worktop fitter will visit your home or job site to take accurate measurements of the installation area, down to the nearest millimetres. Using materials such as plywood or plastic, they will carefully create the template, marking all necessary cutouts, seams, and edge details to match your specifications.
Granite Worktop Fabrication Process
Once agreed on the material and design we can take templates for the project and then start fabricating your bespoke individual design. The completed template will be taken to our workshop where our skilled craftsmen will utilise advanced machinery, such as CNC routers and water jet cutting machines, to ensure accurate and precise cuts while shaping the slab. The templating process is critical for custom-fitting your chosen worktop to your space, a specialty of our fabricating company We pride ourselves on achieving the best results in the Nottingham area.
The fabricating process for your chosen worktop material involves several complex and highly specialised steps:
Selection and Inspection:
We carefully inspect the slab for any defects or imperfections before going any further. The slab selected will depend on your desired colour, pattern, and thickness requested.
Our advanced machinery is used to cut the selected slab into the appropriate size and shape for your kitchen space.
When we are happy that the slab has been cut to precision, we will begin the shaping and polishing process to create the correct edge profile. Whether it’s a straight edge, bullnose or ogee, all our edgings are done to perfection as we have the hi-tech equipment and technical knowledge to complete this kind of work
If your kitchen worktop needs more than one slab to complete, then the slabs will be seamed together using our specialised epoxy adhesive resin. Then the seams can be carefully sanded and polished to produce a flawless worktop surface.
Finishing the Surface:
The worktop surface is smoothened to the relevant texture, with polishing, honed, and leathering. To achieve this finish, we utilise specialised tools and equipment to bring the best results possible.
Quality Assurance and Inspections:
After the worktop fabrication has be concluded, then a full inspection will take place. We have high-standards to keep so you can be rest assured that your kitchen worktop will be crafted to perfection.
When the manufacturing has been completed we will contact you to make arrangements for an agreeable time for the installation of your new kitchen work surface in either your home or workplace.
Granite Worktop Installation Process:
Before the installation can take place, the space where the worktop is going be fitted, needs to be cleared of any obstruction and the area cleaned ready to accommodate the new worktop arrival. Including kitchen appliances, and old existing worktops.
Your new kitchen worktop will be carefully moved to your home or business premises on the agreed date of the installation.
Worktop Dry Fitting:
Prior to permanently securing the worktop to the cabinets, a dry installation will take place. This comprises positioning the worktop on the cabinets to confirm its suitability and make any necessary modifications.
Fitting and Sealing:
After completing the dry fitting process, the stone countertop will be sealed to prevent any stains and securely fastened to the cabinets using a special adhesive. Our proficient team will ensure that the countertop is levelled, and any seams are firmly connected.
Once the worktop is in place, we'll provide the finishing touches essential to complete the job. This includes applying caulking around the edges and securely attaching sink fixtures.
Tidy and Clean:
After installation is complete, the job site will be cleared by our team, removing any debris and leaving the area spic and span.

Frequently Asked Questions About Granite Worktops
What maintenance do granite worktops need?
Granite worktops are incredibly hardwearing and, generally, require very little maintenance. Even so, there are a few simple things you can do to keep your granite worktop looking its best for years to come.
Firstly, it is important to clean the surface regularly using warm water and a mild detergent or soap-free cleaner. Gently rub the surface with a soft cloth or sponge, and rinse thoroughly. Avoid using strong chemicals or abrasive scrubbing pads, as these can damage the sealant and cause dullness or discolouration.
In order to retain the natural beauty of your granite worktop, it is important to reseal it every 12-18 months. This will help protect against water and other liquids that could cause staining. Additionally, granite worktops should be regularly wiped with a damp cloth to remove any food residue that has built up on the surface.
Finally, it is important to remember not to place hot items directly onto the granite surface as this can cause marks or even cracking over time. To avoid this, you should always use hot pads or mats when placing hot items on the worktop.
By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your granite worktop stays looking beautiful for years!
How long will a granite worktop last?
A granite worktop is one of the most durable surfaces available for a kitchen or bathroom. It's highly resistant to stains, scratches, and heat, and with proper care, it will last for many years. Granite is known to last up to 30 years with minimal maintenance.
Is granite countertops heat resistant?
Granite worktops are a popular choice for homeowners looking to enhance the beauty and function of their kitchens. They offer a durable and attractive finish that is heat-resistant, scratch-resistant, and long-lasting. However, it is important to note that while granite countertops are able to withstand some heat, there are limits as to how much they can take before becoming damaged. It is recommended to use trivets or hot pads when placing hot items on granite countertops, and always be sure to wipe up any spills quickly as they can cause permanent staining. With careful maintenance and keeping temperatures below 350 degrees Fahrenheit, granite countertops can provide many years of service.
For more information about granite countertop care and maintenance, contact our team of installers. They can answer any questions you have and provide further guidance on the best practices for keeping your granite worktops looking great.
Does granite worktops fade in the sun?
Granite worktops are a popular choice for kitchen surfaces in the UK due to their durability and aesthetic appeal. While granite is known for its strength, some may wonder if it can withstand the effects of sunlight over long periods of time. The answer is yes; granite countertops do not usually fade in the sun.
The reason why granite does not typically fade in the sun is that granite is composed of quartz, mica, feldspar, and other minerals that are naturally resistant to UV exposure. Granite is also very dense which means it can absorb heat without losing its colour or developing any blemishes. Additionally, granite worktops are sealed during installation with a clear sealant that further prevents discolouration caused by exposure to sunlight.
However, it is important to note that granite worktops can still be damaged by UV rays in other ways. While the colour of the surface may not fade, long-term exposure to direct sunlight or higher temperatures could cause cracking and other damage due to thermal shock. Therefore, if your granite worktop will be regularly exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods, you may want to consider using a UV shield or window treatment to protect it.
Overall, granite worktops are highly resistant to fading in the sun and can last for many years without any discolouration. As long as it is sealed properly with a clear sealant and not exposed to excessive temperatures, your granite countertop should maintain its beautiful colour over time.
