GRANITE WORKTOPS

We supply and install beautifully crafted and finished granite worktops across the UK.

Granite worktops are the most popular and practical natural stone work surface available.

Thanks to its overriding properties and stunning appearance, granite has always been a favoured construction material throughout human history, with granite worktops being highly sought after. Granite’s natural beauty and unparalleled durability has seen it become a staple in many homes, offering the ideal work surface for day-to-day use.

Granite is extremely hard, durable and almost impermeable. These characteristics mean granite worktops can withstand high temperatures, are highly scratch resilient and almost impervious to water. It is these natural properties which make granite worktops a popular choice for the toughest environments within a home, particularly in kitchens.

Granite is an igneous rock formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava and its colouring and striation can vary dramatically. As such, every granite block that comes out of the ground is unique piece of geological history. The range of colours, hues and patterning you will find across natural granite material is vast. Whatever your project, there will always be a granite material that perfectly enhances the look of your space.

If you’re considering a new granite worktop, we have an extensive range of granites carefully stored and ready for your selection in our yard, where our expert team will gladly assist and advise you in finding the perfect granite for your project.

PROPERTIES OF GRANITE worktops

Staining

Lighter untreated granite worktops can be stained by red wine or oil splashes, while darker denser granite worktops are much less prone to staining. Landford Stone treat all granite work surfaces with a proprietary sealant that will inhibit penetration of liquids that can cause staining to the material.

Heat Damage

Granite is the most heat resistant natural material available for worktops. However, excessive heat in a concentrated area can cause damage to your granite worktop. The use of a pan-stand or heat resistant mat is always advised.

Chopping

Although granite worktops are incredibly scratch resistant, we do not recommend chopping or cutting directly onto the surface due to advances in modern knife manufacture. Using a chopping board in either in wood, toughened glass or acrylic is always advised.

Chipping edges

Please take care when removing heavy pots, pans or plates from the dishwasher. If the edge of the base hits the top edge of the granite worktop with force, it can chip the edge and necessitate a chargeable visit to repair the damage.
