Kitchen Worktop Repairs
Is your granite or stone worktop damaged, cracked, chipped, stained or lost its sheen? We can provide you with a fast, long lasting repair that is in most cases almost invisible. We use the latest technologies to provide the best repair possible.
Using our own fillers and expertise, we can make imperfections in your worktop almost invisible. Please note, some stones are more difficult to repair invisibly than others – in particular pure black and white stone are the hardest to achieve near invisible repairs. However, we will always do our best to make to the damage unnoticeable.
Firstly we try chemical repairs and buffing as this can often produce good results with the least effort and cost. If this does produce results that you’re satisfied with then repolishing may be required. Ideally re-polishing should not be done inside your home as it is very messy and takes several hours but if it is not practical to remove the worktop then we will try our best to minimise mess and clean up afterwards.
The first thing that needs to be done is to investigate the cause of the crack. If this is not done and then rectified it is likely that the problem will reoccur. Cracks on worktops around hobs and sinks are a common problem as these are the weakest points. This may be due to uneven base units or lack of support in the right places. So we may need to re-level units and provide extra supports. In many cases we are likely to recommend replacing the stone worktop if this is not too expensive and a good match can be made. Otherwise we will repair the crack as well as we can.

Dear Essex granite Thank you for the new granite work tops recently installed. Your advice has been superb through out the whole process of who to use and what granite would be best. We feel that the choice we made when choosing you was without question one of the easiest parts of the whole purchasing scenario.
