Granite Worktops Southampton Clients Will Love 

There are very few materials that can compete with everything that granite has to offer. Not only does granite offer luxury aesthetics, but it also offers durability and strength too. Here at Change of Style Granite & Stone Ltd, we can create your Southampton worktops from this material, blending them seamlessly with the rest of your kitchen. We create only the highest quality products, giving you the surface you have been dreaming of for a costeffective price. 

As a material, granite is fantastic to work with and our team are very passionate when it comes to the forming and refining of these blocks. This process has been made swifter by the improvements in technology, and our team now use stateoftheart technology in the manufacturing process. We cut the granite to an incredibly accurate degree with the use of water jet technology, diamond wire, and diamond blade saws. Once we have the raw shape of your Southampton worktops, our team of specialists refine and hone it into an attractive and polished final product. 

The experience that our team of specialists has built up over the years is unrivalled and allows them to create a product that simply cannot be replicated by any machine. These intricate details and final touches can only be accomplished by our team here at Change of Style Granite & Stone Ltd. Having such skilled craftspeople working on your granite worktops, Southampton clients, sets us apart from our competitors. 

Durability of Granite 

When you invest in one of our granite worktops in Southampton, you will benefit from a surface that boasts superior strength and durability. Our worktops are highly scratchresistant and can withstand many years of usage without compromising on appearance. This is because granite, as a material, is actually harder than a knife, meaning it is difficult for a knife to actually mark the granite surface. However, we always recommend the use of a chopping board to ensure your surface’s longevity. 

Types of Granite 

Granite is a natural product and, as such, you will find there are many different variations available. No two Southampton worktops will be the same as no two granite slabs are the same. Each slab is unique thanks to the inflections and mineral deposits within the stone itself, but they are all incredibly attractive.  

Though each granite slab is different, they will contain certain characteristics in common depending on where they are quarried and extracted from. Your worktops in Southampton, when quarried from the same site, will have characteristics such as hue or colour in common. As such, there are an extensive range of granite types that we can supply, some of which include: 

  • Angolan Black Granite 
  • Bianco Sardo Granite 
  • Blue Pearl Granite 
  • Impala Granite 
  • Zimbabwe Granite 
  • River Valley White Granite 

The above is by no means an exhaustive list of the options we have available to you because there are just so many permeations of granite available. This is due to the way granite is formed; as an igneous rock, it is formed by slowly cooling magma which forms a crystalline structure.  

Granite is a composite material, meaning it is made up of many elements; mainly quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles, and other minerals. The different colours of your Southampton worktops are created by the mineral composition of the granite, which can vary depending on the location it is quarried from.

Quartz Worktops in Southampton 

Here at Change of Style Granite & Stone Ltd, we have a team that are specially trained in the manufacturing of quartz worktops, Southampton clients. Over the years, we have gained invaluable experience and an unrivalled knowledge of quartz as a material. As such, we are a team that can provide exceptional quartz surfaces for our clients. 

We use stateoftheart technology to cut the quartz into the raw slab, and from there our quartz specialists really come into their own. They work by hand to refine and hone the shape of the raw slab into the polished and luxurious Southampton worktops we will install. Some of the techniques our team use simply cannot be replicated by any machine, or by any other specialists; our process is unique. 

Durability of Quartz 

As with our granite worktops, Southampton clients, you will find our quartz surfaces are highly durable. They are scratchresistant and can withstand years of usage without suffering any negative effects to their appearance owing to where they rank on the Mohs hardness scale. A steel knife is typically around 5-6.5 on the scale, while quartz is around 7, meaning that your surface is actually harder than the knife itself.  

Types of Quartz Available 

As quartz is constructed differently to granite and other materials, you will find there are a vast array of options to choose from. Southampton, worktops made of quartz are a combination of around 90% crushed natural quartz, which is then shaped and set using 8-10% resin, polymers, and pigments. It is this pigmentation used in the construction that allows us to supply a nearly limitless selection of colours. 

Plus, depending on how we grind the quartz, we can achieve different looks. Finely ground quartz will produce a smooth and consistent finish while coarsely ground quartz will provide a flecked and textured appearance, while remaining smooth. 

Here at Change of Style Granite & Stone Ltd, some of the many options we have available for your worktops in Southampton include: 

  • Miami White 
  • Snowy Ibiza 
  • Eternal Serena 
    • Blanco Zeus Extreme 
    • Marengo 
    • Ariel

Our Process 

At Change of Style Granite & Stone Ltd, we have a threestage process for the creation of your Southampton worktops, whether you choose granite or quartz. Below, we have gone into more detail on each step of this process. 

Digital Templating 

The first stage of our threestep process is digital templating. We want to ensure that your new worktops, Southampton clients, fit perfectly without any gaps or excess wastage. With our digital templating service, this will never happen as we ensure worktops are manufactured to fit your kitchen space perfectly. 

During a visit to your home, one of our experienced digital templaters will carefully measure the tops of your base units. These base units will need to be fixed into their final position before we can take any measurements and should be level to within 3mm. There are other criteria that must be met in order for our templaters to work, including: 

  • Plastering to be Completed 
  • End Panels to be Attached 
  • Appliances, Sinks, and Taps On-Site 

Once these requirements have been met, we can create a detailed digital template for you, which will represent the final appearance of your Southampton worktops.  

Manufacturing 

Step two of our process is manufacturing, and we have an impressive reputation for the manufacturing of granite and quartz worktops in Southampton. The digital template from your property will be returned to our factory and then, using your chosen material, we will manufacture your worktops to the specifications in the template. 

We use a combination of CNC machinery and traditional craftsmanship to manufacture your worktops, Southampton clients. Your material will be cut, shaped, and polished to exacting standards and specifications. By utilising CNC machinery in this process, we can create intricate cuts and achieve a level of finish not possible using other machines.  

Once we have completed the manufacturing process, we will check your Southampton worktops for accuracy to the template and for quality. We will ensure that your new worktops match the template specification exactly and, if there are any discrepancies, these will be dealt with. Once we have confirmed your surfaces meet all the specifications, they will be sealed and ready for fitting. 

Fitting 

The third and final stage of our threestep process is fitting. We have a team of professionals who are experienced in the installation and fitting of granite and quartz worktops in Southampton, and they will work with the utmost care and attention. However, it is essential to the fitting process that we have easeofaccess into your property as granite and quartz worktops are very heavy and can be difficult to manoeuvre. 

Both granite and quartz slabs cannot tolerate a lot of transverse sheer stress, which means they cannot be laid or carried flat until properly supported by your kitchen units. Plus, while solid slabs are more structurally sound, any slabs with cutouts for faucets, sinks, and other fixtures are less structurally sound. This is why it is essential to have easy access to your property and kitchen, to ensure the smooth installation of your Southampton worktops.  

You can rest assured, however, that we have years of experience and will know exactly how to proceed with your fitting.
