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