Granite Worktops in Oxfordshire

Why choose Granite for your worktops

Granite is a wonderful choice for a kitchen work surface as it is hardwearing. We apply a sealant to all granite surfaces on installation but we recommend that the surfaces are resealed from time to time. The frequency of resealing will depend on the granite selected but generally speaking the lighter coloured granites will need more frequent sealing.

The application of the sealant is very straightforward and requires the surface to be clean and dry first. The sealant is then applied with a clean cloth, left for a few minutes and then any excess sealant that has not been absorbed wiped off.

We recommend that trivets or pan stands are used for very hot pans or dishes straight from the hob or oven to protect the granite surface.

Granite is very strong and durable as a kitchen work surface but it is not indestructible so care should be taken when handling heavy pots above the surface.

How is Granite formed?

Granite is a natural material which is both beautiful and hardwearing. It is an igneous rock which forms as a result of the slow crystallisation of molten magma beneath the earth’s crust. Granite is composed primarily of quartz, feldspar and mica and the different chemistry of the minerals gives each granite it’s distinct colour and pattern.

There are many different granites and they are quarried all over the world from Norway, Finland, Spain and Portugal to India, Africa and Brazil.

How much are Granite worktops?

Granites vary in price depending primarily on availability – we have a range of granites to suit many budgets.

How to clean Granite worktops

Granite is a great choice for a kitchen surface that is relatively easy to maintain. For everyday cleaning normal kitchen spray (or antibacterial spray) can be used or alternatively warm soapy water that is then thoroughly rinsed and dried.
