Stone

Kapiti Benchtops offers a number of solid surface ranges.

Transform your kitchen and add value to your home with a natural or engineered stone benchtop from Kapiti Benchtops. 

Our skilled team manufacture and install hard-wearing stone surfaces for kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. 

Choose from a number of stone brands including Caesarstone, Uniquartz, Silestone and natural granite. 

Engineered stone

Engineered stone is a product which consists of up to 93% natural quartz which gives it extraordinary hardness and resistance. Due to the compact and non-porous structure, engineered stone never requires sealing. Engineered stone comes in a variety of 20mm or 30mm slabs depending on product choice. Standard profile is a pencil edge.

Key advantages of using engineered stone:

  • Hard wearing
  • Stain resistant
  • Low maintenance
  • Non-porous

Granite

Granite is 100% natural. If you are after a unique kitchen benchtop, then this product is for you. No two slabs of granite are the same.  Our stone is sourced from major granite producing countries:

  • Brazil
  • India
  • Italy
  • Greece
  • Spain

Granite slabs generally come in 30mm thickness. Standard profile is a pencil edge.

Advantages of granite

As granite is porous it is recommended that it be re-sealed on an annual basis. Kapiti Benchtops can help with this process or provide advice so you can do it yourself.

Key advantages of using granite:

  • Unique – Offers a variety of different patterns of veins, specks and swirls
  • Durable – Extremely resistant to everyday use
  • A natural product which is timeless
  • Sanitary

Process

Choosing Your Stone
Please contact us to discuss your benchtop requirements. We have a selection of stone onsite that can be viewed to help with your stone choice.

Quote
Once you have made your selection a quote can then be provided. We offer a free measure and quote service for the Wellington/Horowhenua regions. Alternatively, you can provide us with your own measurements for an estimate. Once the quote is accepted, we will ask for a 50% deposit before templating can proceed.

Template
To get an accurate fit, one of our team members will visit your home and make a custom template. Please note that to do this, removal of your benchtop is necessary.

Manufacture/Install
Once your template has been completed, our skilled fabricators will manufacture your new benchtop. You can expect approximately one week’s turnaround from template to installation.

Warranty

As granite is a natural product and millions of years old, the material itself is not warranted. However, Kapiti Benchtops offer a warranty of five years on workmanship. This warranty applies to damage caused by faulty or improper fabrication and installation.
