When it comes to choosing worktops there are so many how do you choose????
Granite, quartz (Silestone,Cambria,Caesarstone to name a few), porcelain, ceramics and sintered stones (Dekton, Laminam, Neolith,lapitec), Solid surfaces (Corian, Hanex, Starton, LG Hi-Macs) then marbles and quartzites. Although we have policies on selling marble to customers as worktops. Here at R.O Surfaces, we like to educate our customers about the materials so if a customer wants marble and hasn't had marble previous we would explain to them what will happen to the worktops over time, how they will age and how they can etch. Even with the best sealers in the world a marble will etch which is different from a stain!
The same with all our worktops we explain how to look after them and care for them. Corian and the other solid surfaces are to be looked after a little different to stone as with Corian being an acrlyic you can use a scouring pad and sandpapers on the face of it if you ever get stubborn stains whereas stones will simply require a good cleaner such as Cif or Barkeepers Friend to remove stubborn marks
We have installed granite worktops in thousands of homes across the Newcastle upon tyne area and Northumberland and (touch wood) we havnt had a stain on a top we couldnt remove but we are also lucky enough that all of our customers have followed our care instructions!!
Our Showroom is jam-packed with all of our sample worktops and tiles for you to browse we are open 9-5 every weekday and 9-2 on a Saturday we always have someone on hand to give you some advice and point you in the right direction. We may not be the cheapest around but we pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and have gained an excellent reputation which we are very proud of. We don't use inferior products and we can stand behind our products 100%. a quote we heard a very long time ago that has stuck with us is "quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten"
Last week weve been installing in Cheser le street with some stunning Dekton Trilium, Benton in Newcastle Upon Tyne with some Silestone and some more Dekton Trillium, a huge job in Gosforth with some Caeserstone and Whickham with a stunning Corian Island with drop-down legs and integrated Corian sink,
