Our granite worktop supplier newcastle / north east status has been bolstered again with the addition of another 3 trade customers with showrooms so the run up to xmas is going to be really busy. One showroom is going to be Silestone Elite, and the other 2 will have a mixture of Silestone, Cambria quartz and ceaserstone, exciting times

we have seen a huge surge in our granite worktops, more and more people seem to be going back to the natural stone, we have been working all over newcastle upon tyne and the north east the last couple of weeks. weve had some order for fusion granite, steel grey, galapagos quartzite and amarone, All absolutely stunning materials

Weve still been fabricating and insatling our quartz with ceaserstone, silestone and cambria and our cermaics and ultra compact surfaces with dekton, laminam and neolith.

The worktop business around the north east is very busy at the moment and will only get busier in the coming months with the xmas rush on!! Weve been installing all over the place weve been to Leeming Bar, Teeside, Yarm, Darlington, hexham, whickham, low fell, morpeth and longframlington in the last week alone so the vans have had a few extra miles on them this week.

We may be expanding our showrooms too within the next few months so we are getting all prepped up for that, pop along and see us in Swalwell to have a look at our huge range, just excuse the mess whilst the work is going on!!!!!

Here at R.O Surfaces we are often asked if we think the waterfall edges can be done in quartz, granite as well as corian, staron etc, in short yes!!

They work great if have picked a vein material and the material allowance lets us drop the leg from one run so that the vein runs along the top and down to the floor, however this cant be achieved on every job sometimes due to size sometimes budget etc.

We think they create a great feature as in the picture above of a recent install of marble effect quartz installed in Whickham, Gateshead. This drop leg has enabled us to create a sitting area we did have to install some steel work first but we made the worktops extra deep so that the steelwork is hidden so youd never know!!!!!

We are currently fabricating a huge Corian job like this too, we have made a corian table with a drop leg and steel supports that is 3 meters long!! Other solid surfaces lend them selves well to this as well LG Hi-Macs, Staron and Hanex, not so much with materails such as mistral and Mia as they are already 25mm blacks (where the worktop is already cut to size)


Weve had some stunning jobs going out the last week and one of our busiest periods ever!! Weve had one Zimbabwe black granite in a polished finish going into Birtley

one Zimbabwe black in a leathered finish going into a property in Blaydon with upstands and full height splashback

a 20mm Silestone quartz job with a downdraft extractor going into Sunderland again with full height splashbacks

3 of our own brand Quartz R.O Snow similar to stellar blanco and Aspen ice going into Ponteland, Killingworth and Tynemouth

and 2 of our own Calacatta quartz going into Medburn and Whitley bay.

Weve also been appointed the only fabricators for 2 new trade customers in cumbria and lakedistrct and one in South Shields

Onwards and upwards

Mad busy as ever!! the swalwell factory is bursting at the seams at the moment, not that we are complaining, the never ending showroom will hopefully be getting some work next month too as weve added another 2 members of staff to cope with the work load.


What influences you when you are choosing a worktop?? Why Silestone over a Corian or a Granite over a Quartz?? weve noticed the recent burst in Corian, Staron and Hi macs as well as our Dekton flying off the shelves, We always ask our customers but most of them have just seen it in a magazine or a friend or relative has some, we always offer truthfull advice on our surfaces the do's and dont's the benifits and what to look out for with all the tops. youd be suprised the amount of people who come in and have been to other places and have been misinformed (especially about quartz and Corian).

We have just added another fabricator to our team for the Solid surface side as we have been approved corian fabricators / suppliers for a long time but a new trade contact has chose us as his Corian supplier in Newcastle and gateshead so our workload on that side has doubled, weve also picked up a new trade customer in Carlisle who we are really excited to work with as he does some fantastic kitchens, you may see our vans over in the lake district in the next few weeks as we have a hotel to do in windermere, a worktop job in keswick and a silestone job in Barrow in Furness, as well as a huge Corian job in Northumberland right beside white house farm so we know where we are going at bait time!! a Cambria quartz job in Benton and Ponteland, 2 stunning black granite jobs (which is also mega popular at the minute) both in Gosforth and a lovely staron solid surface job in Cramlington

Just incase you seen last weeks blog and wondering what it was all about let nhme explain, my little boy asked about gamer x ( i still have no idea what that is) and we had a discussion that i was gamer x, so i put that on last week so that when he googled it my ugly mug would show up!!

Anyway as usual we keep a eye on trends going out of the factory and it seems Silestone is back at the top of the sales list for us which usually means a advert or publication has went out somewhere with it in normally a home and country magazine up in northumberland or the living north show has been on in gosforth, i think the 25 year warranty sells Silestone and i have to say that they are great for support should anything need done. Weve only had 3 warranty issues and Cosentino have come straight out to R.O Surfaces rescue haha.

We have been selected as the preffered marble / granite suppliers in the north east for the stunning Bywell Hall in Stocksfield, Northumberland. We have just delivered a stunning marble table that we have fabricated, i wont put a photo on you can just visit the site once its all finished.

As usual we have been extrememly busy with a Corian jobs in Cramilington, Fenham and gosforth

Weve had 4 Silestone jobs in Ponteland, Gosforth, Westerhope and North Shields and have been selected as the Silestone and quartz supplier for a new delopement in Anlwick so we are all over the place at the minute.

We have a stunning Cosmic black granite job in Whickham, gateshead and a stunning back lit avonite job goin into a showroom in Yarm soon cant wait, we love anything unusual.
