Partnering with some of the world’s leading brands such as Silestone, Caesarstone, Essastone, Smartstone, Dekton, Zuccari and more, we offer outstanding value for money utilising natural, engineered stone and ultra compact surfaces.
Application: kitchen, bathroom, laundry
Engineered stone is manufactured from quartz (one of natures hardest minerals) and polymer resins and pigment. Quartz surfaces are ideal for any interior space, offering design freedom with almost unlimited application possibilities. In conjunction with its modern edge appeal, engineered stone is non-porous, scratch resistant and highly resistant to stains, making it a popular choice for all interior surfaces. Requiring no application of sealants or waxants, engineered stone offers the look and feel of natural stone without the upkeep or hefty price tag. It will add value and style to any residence or commercial property and is available in a vast array of colours, designs and finishes.
Ultra Compact / porcelain / sintered surfaces
Application: kitchen, bathroom, laundry, alfresco, flooring, facades, cladding
This new style of engineered stone is becoming extremely popular in its field for its incredible qualities. The high-tech manufacturing process used to create this material represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes, using extreme heat and pressure to compress a mixture of raw materials such as quartz, glass and porcelain. These materials contain no binders or resin and are an almost indestructible material, once installed. Ultra-compact surfaces are extremely scratch resistant (can only be scratched by diamond), have a high resistance to fire and heat (allowing the ability to be able to place a hotplate directly on the surface), stain and chemical proof, resistant to abrasions, resistant to UV rays (allowing colour stability outdoors) and resistant to ice and thawing .
Natural Stone – Granite / Marble
Application: kitchen, bathroom, laundry, alfresco. flooring, facades
Granite is a natural stone which is renowned for its extreme durability, hygienic and distinctive natural characteristics. Granite can endure the toughest environmental conditions and is highly resistant to heat and UV rays. The material is less vulnerable to scratching and staining, making it a popular choice for all interior and exterior spaces. There are even options available now for granite that does not require post install surface treatment.
If budget is no issue then natural marble would be the perfect choice as it exudes pure elegance. It is a softer material than granite therefore generally not recommended for kitchen surfaces although its unique smooth colours and patterns make it a very popular choice for bathroom vanities, bath surrounds and fire places. Through various processes we can achieve many different marble finishes such as polished, honed or acid washed to give it a distinctive look
Various edge styles are possible with natural and engineered stone. The diagrams below show just some of the many options available but please contact us to discuss your requirements.
