Stone Worktops Tips & AdviceHelpful Tips & Advice on Purchasing your Stone Worktops

If it’s a natural stone you are considering then it’s very important you know where it comes from.

Amaris only use the highest quality material, it is inspected and once we are happy, we manufacture your dream kitchen.

If you can’t view your stone, be wary

This is a must for natural stone, it varies from slab to slab especially the lighter stones. Using a local company gives you the choice and benefits of doing so.

You can also view the quality of the stone and meet the staff you are dealing with. A personal service goes a long way.  You can also receive samples advice and information face to face.

Like for like quotations

Make sure  you have asked for templating, fitting and vat to be included in the costs.

This is automatically added in Amaris quotations if you are a retail customer.

Templating your worktops

Templating is a procedure that is required to make your kitchen worktops a perfect fit. Once your base carcasses are installed in their final position, we then make an exact replica of your worktops using a plastic corrugated material.

We advise all customers to have kitchens templated. As a reputable company we would not manufacture your kitchen worktops unless we have done so.

The reasons why it’s so important to template is that no walls run level, sink and hob positions need to be exact and you can visually see any shapes and curves.

How your stone is manufactured

This is so important to ensure the quality of the worktops is of the highest standard. As its eye level you are always drawn to the area, if the workmanship is not of the highest standard then it will stand out dramatically.

Reputable companies spend large sums of money on machinery to ensure the quality of which you as our customer and stone deserve. Hand held tools cannot give the standard and accuracy that a machine can. Asking the questions on how your worktops are made is useful advice. Amaris are fully automated and have a factory to do so. Nothing is fabricated on your property.

Aftercare service

Using a local company also benefits from an aftercare service.

We are always on the end of the phone or simply call up to see us.

Why we are different
