There is a bewildering choice of stone, colours, edges. The best thing you can do is come and talk to us! Come and see the stone itself, get a sample and discuss your requirements so we can help you make the best selection.

All our natural stone surfaces are sealed with stain inhibitors in the factory to provide a protective coating, which reduces the porosity of the natural surface. We recommend that you re-seal your granite and marble surfaces six months after installation, or as required, ideally using Lithofin Stain Stop.

  • Marble and granite is not difficult to clean – mild soap and water is all that is generally required. Work surfaces can also be cleaned using a neutral detergent rinsed with clean water and buffed using a soft clean cloth or using a cleaner specifically recommended for stone surfaces.
  • Never use abrasive cleaning products such as metal pads, scouring pads and scouring detergents on granite or marble as these can affect the finish over time. Also avoid alkaline and chlorine based cleaners, do not use bleach and never use glass cleaner. Granite and Marble is easily maintained without the need for such abrasive cleaners.
  • Drainage flutes can be cleaned using fine wire wool (0000 grade) with mild soap and water.
  • Please be aware that any acidic products i.e. citrus liquids, fruit juice, fizzy drinks, wine, vinegars etc will leave marks on the surfaces so must be wiped away immediately. Nail varnish and any other solvent or oil based products will stain if not wiped up immediately.
  • Strongly coloured foods, i.e. curry, saffron, beetroot, red wine, blackcurrant etc can cause staining so should be cleaned up immediately.
  • Never allow the following to come in contact with your granite: Formic acid, Hydrofluoric acid, Nitric acid, Sulphuric acid, Phosphoric acid or Hydrochloric acid.
  • Extreme heat will damage the surface, do not expose marble or granite to excessive heat/ sudden temperature changes. It is best to have a trivet or similar to place your pans on when taken directly from the hob or oven. Where granite is used for hearths the temperature change is gradual and space is allowed for expansion when fitting, therefore heat should not be a problem.
  • As with any high quality worktops, care should be taken against possible scoring with knives or other cutting tools and chopping boards should always be used, care should be taken not to drag items over the surface; lift and place.
  • Do not drop heavy items on the stone worktops.
  • Do not sit or stand on stone countertops! (was missed out on current website version)
