FAQS

Who do you sell to?

At Granite Worktops of York we not only supply directly to the public but we also supply to the commercial market. By doing so we can ensure that you get the best service and price.

What is a template?

A template is an exact replica of the required granite or quartz worktops. Taking all accurate measurements of the kitchen units and cut outs for hobs and sinks, all the shaping and overhang required.

This is then used to manufacture the granite work tops ensuring a precise and accurate cutting of the granite or quartz for a perfect work surface installation. Beware of companies who claim they do not need to template before fitting, and cut on site using mobile equipment on the installation day. Using hand held cutters and polishers in your kitchen or living room can often result in having to chisel the walls and needing to scribe the back of the granite or quartz edge to install the work surface. This results in a very poor quality work surface plus a lot of dust, debris and noise.

A top quality Granite or Quartz worktop when finished to the highest standard requires accurate templating before installation. Our cutting and polishing is carried out on the latest precision machinery in a dedicated and bespoke manufacturing facility, ensuring a perfect fit and a superior finish.

Do you remove existing work tops?

Standardly our team of fitters do not remove existing worktops. In certain cases our templaters can template for your job with the existing tops still in place however, we recommend that they are removed beforehand to ensure that the templates are as precise as possible.

All base units should be fitted including end panels and secured. Any existing or temporary work surfaces or worktop appliances should be removed. (i.e. hobs and sinks.)

If the walls are tiled, any tiles that may prevent the templates being taken must be removed in order for the new work surfaces to be templated right back to the wall.

What is involved in a template and a fit?

During both a template and a fit all appliance’s must be on site at templating.

Please note that Granite Worktops of York do not install sinks or hobs nor do we undertake any electrical or plumbing work. A representative must be available during templating to confirm sizes etc and to sign off the template before the template leaves the property.

Do I need to be there when you template and install?

It is recommended and is best that you are there when we template and install your work surfaces to be able to answer any questions that we may have. This also helps so that you can ensure that you are happy with the finished product.

How long from templating will it take to fit my worktops?

We aim to have a turnaround time of 7 days from the template to the fit for both granite and quartz.

How can I get a quote?

Simply type your measurements with your preferred granite or quartz colour using our online quotation tool. Or if you prefer you can either call us, email us or fax us your measurement’s and preferred colour along with your contact details where one of our friendly members of office staff will aim to get your quote back to you within the hour.
