Granite is a natural stone which has been popular for decades for both bathroom and kitchen worktops. It is one of the most reliable materials and will last you for decades. You will be able to find in its range beautiful colours that will be a great addition to your home.
At Y&S marble, we offer granite worktops in Harlow and surrounding areas at affordable prices.
1. Scratch-resistant: granite is the best material when it comes to resistance to scratches. It will not get scratched with an accidental slip of a knife or a sharp object. You can cut directly on it and it will never get scratched, but it can dull your knives.
2. Heat resistant: if you don’t have the habit of using mats and trivets, granite is the perfect choice for you. Temperatures produced in the kitchen will not harm your worktops, even if you need to put a hot pot directly on them.
3. Durable: Granite is also one of the hardest stones ranking number 7 on the Mohs scale. Granite will not break or crack when exposed to high pressure.
4. Unique: granite, as natural stone, has patterns that are always unique and unrepeatable. It has a wide variety of colours that includes classic colours like beige or black, as well as some more uncommon such as green or red.
5. Resistant to staining
Granite is not 100% stain proof as engineered stones are, but it will not get stained by most liquids. Just make sure to wipe spilt wine or coffee immediately, as they tend to stain easier.
Price & Installation
Several factors are making an impact on the price of granite worktops. The main factor is the rarity of the colour- some rare colours can be expensive, while other common colours are cheaper. Any special elements that are making the installation more complex, will also add to the prices. Naturally, the size of your kitchen or bathroom is another factor that is making an impact on the price.
The prices for granite worktops are starting from over £300 per square meter.
The installation is handled by our team with a long background in the industry. Once we agree on the colour, we will come to your house to do the template. After that, we will fabricate the worktops in-house. The fabrication will take a week. We will agree on the installation day that works for you and we’ll make sure that the installation is handled most efficiently. The installation will take only a few hours and we will make sure not to disrupt your home for too long. When the installation is completed, your worktops will be ready for use.
