Quality Service Delivery

Engineered stone

It is our most popular product due to its practicality and great value for money. Advantages of engineered stone includes strength and extremely low porosity. This makes it resistant to scratches, chips and stains, giving it an added hygiene factor when used in a kitchen setting. As the product is made primarily from a natural mineral, a difference of up to two shade tones can be viewed between sample and slab. This is an important consideration if choosing engineered stone.

Natural Stone

Natural stone is a naturally forming stone that has developed over thousands of years. This group includes granite (commonly used in Alfresco areas due to its resistance to heat and UV), marble plus more exotic stones such as travertine and quartzite. Natural Stone is unique with no two pieces alike, and is stain, scratch and chip resistant. Due to its nature, natural stone has large spectrum in terms of colour, type, style, structure, porosity and price.

Porcelain

Porcelain is defined as a ceramic product that has been baked at high temperatures to achieve a glass-like, permanently hardened texture to form virtually non-porous material. It is manufactured from a sophisticated blend of natural raw materials using intense temperatures and extreme pressure, much like an accelerated version of the processes that natural stone undergoes in the ground over thousands of years. Porcelain slabs can come as thin as 3mm, and as large as 3m by 1m making them ideal for splashbacks, with few or no joins. Brands we use include Laminam and Bella.

Ultra Compact

A high tech process which represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years. It is also extremely hard-wearing, ideal for high traffic areas and resistant to low and high temperatures. This zero porosity and lack of the micro-defects that cause tension or weak spots mark the difference between ultra compact and other surfaces. Our supplies include Neolith and Dekton.
