Our granite worktops and other surfaces are carefully selected from the world’s quarries based on the source and the quality of the stone. As a natural product, no two granite slabs are identical; equally natural stones excavated from different quarries will vary in natural properties. No matter where the granite is mined, the stone is an igneous rock and consists of prominently of quartz, feldspar, and mica. Granite has a durable reputation with a melting point of between 1215° and 1260°; which is one of the many reasons granite worktops are used in kitchens throughout the world.
Granite tops in a kitchen are a sign of quality and add a touch of class, elegance, and sophistication. The fact that the work surface is the most noticeable element in a kitchen means that a well-fitted piece of quality granite really does complete a kitchen project the right way. Many people are surprised when they see the diversity of colors available, compared to the restricted selection most people are typically offered by a kitchen designer. We encourage our customers to view the slab either in our factory in Bedford or at one of our granite suppliers in London.
A kitchen surface is in constant use; it is, therefore, essential for it to be resilient for the daily usage it will invariably encounter. At I Granite we use only the highest quality full-sized granite slabs and never touch inferior blanks that can be inadvertently purchased online. All of our granite range is professionally sealed and treated at no extra charge, using the world’s leading stone sealant product ‘Dry Treat’. As an approved applicator, we offer a 15-year warranty against staining on all granite we worktops install. Gone are the days of worrying about every splash and spill. Sealant treatment technology has truly evolved, resulting in granite worktops being more resilient than ever before.
Granite worktops are available in 30mm gauge thickness, with certain colors also available in 20mm gauge thickness.
Quartz is a premium manufactured countertop product containing 92% quartz, 7% resin, and 1% color, forming a resilient hygienic practical work surface. The material is an excellent choice for customers who want a modern contemporary finish with a consistent grain pattern and elegant. The versatile stone is available in a huge selection of colors from the four leading UK brands (Silestone, Quartzforms, Compac, and Ceasarstone). The versatility of quartz worktops makes them an excellent choice for kitchen surfaces and bathroom vanities, as well as a suitable material for internal wall cladding.
Quartz worktops typically fare better against staining than untreated granite against staining due to the stone’s virtually non-porous nature. Quartz is impact and scratch-resistant thanks to the polyester resin elasticity and Vibro compression technology incorporated during the manufacturing process. Quartz worktops are scratch-resistant and virtually impervious to acidic consumables such as lemons or orange juice. As a testament to the quality of our products; all of our collection is sold with a minimum of a 10-year warranty against staining.
Quartz worktops are a typically purchased in 30mm gauge thickness, but are also available in a thinner 20mm gauge thickness alternative.
Marble is an instantly recognizable stone; its soft colors, vibrant warmth, and naturally occurring veining make this material an excellent choice for those seeking natural beauty and elegance. Many people often think as marble as being white with grey veining; however, they may be surprised to see the complete range of different colors that are available to create beautiful marble worktops.
Marble is a versatile product, suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, and wall cladding. The stone is often used in classic or farmhouse style kitchens complimenting wooden cabinets. Despite its traditional usage, marble has recently been the worktop surface of choice for kitchen designers and interior architects seeking to complete a kitchen in an unrivaled way.
Marble is a softer stone in comparison to granite and quartz and is extremely sensitive to acidic liquids such as fruit juice. The stone is sensitive to marking and scratching, and over time will age with the kitchen. Read more about the potential advantages and disadvantages of having marble worktops.
