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

check out this 50mm deep island, we love it. all done by hand with secret support to aid the strength, we put this in last week in Whickham gateshead. The Island is a carrara quartz island with 20mm worktops to match. Weve been off the radar for a few weeks again just a massive influx of work has kept us at it 7 days a week at the factory in Swalwell right next to the metro centre, Our showroom centre piece still isnt done but we are hopefull that the week after next we can get it fabricated and have the nicest showroom in the North East (lol). Weve been working on some super exciting project over the last few weeks, Sensa granite has been flying out of the racks with installs in Whitley bay, Longbenton, Yarm, Stockton, Hexham and Ponteland. Our Corian and solid surface installers are still at it as well with 3 Corian installs one in Durham, one in Kingston Park and one in Belsay weve done some Grey Onyx, some glacier white and a stunning Staron job with full height splashbacks down in Yarm in Teesdie. Weve been mainly North East based this month and havnt been to Carlisle or the North West a lot at all, but we do have a job in Workington, Carlisle and Whitehaven next month so best put some new tyres on the vans. Cambra quartz is still a big hit with the Newcastle upon tyne folk, we think its because there is nothing quite like it available, obvoulsy our Silestone sales are still going strong, and we have been chosen as the granite, quartz, corian solid surface installers for 3 new showrooms accross the North East so we are really looking forward to working with them, Our Neolith sales are happening too we are proud to be bringing it to the North East, Everyone has heard of Dekton but now the other plaers are here too so we have Laminam, Neolith and Coverlam all hungry for a piece of the market. Pop down the showroom to see some samples and learn about these exciting worktops

we are growing rapidly and have some exciting news coming soon but have to keep a lid on it for now!!

Staron is fast becoming the most popular solid surface worktops of choice for our customers. Corian seems to have took a little step back and Staron has stormed into first place, we always see trends come and go and notice that when one of the big players like cosentino push Dekton or Silestone then we get a influx of customers asking for it, Same with Corian they advertise in publications such as home and garden then wel get quotes for Corian. So we are presuming Staron has done a lot of advertising some where or other!! A stunning Dekton job has been started this week too, up in northumberland cant wait to show you the full pictures.

weve also put a Staron job in Teeside and a Silestone job in Gosforth, and a Granite job up Heddon on the wall.

We also are having another little expansion and investing in some more machinery, exciting times, we have been asked to be the main granite, quartz (silestone) and solid surfac suppliers (Corian, Staron, Hanex, Hi macs) for another 3 showrooms in Newcastle, gateshead and Birtley. So we are very excited!!

If you need any worktops for your next project dont hesitate to contact us we cover the whole of the north east and are situatted 5 minutes from the metro centre and team valley, just down the hill from Whickham we are in Swalwell, pop in anytime for a chat or to see some samples
