J. Rotherham’s Granite Worktops are manufactured from granite that is generally quarried directly from the mountainside where it has formed over millions of years. Colour and veining changes along with geographical characteristics and mineral composition.
This ensures your granite kitchen worktop will be a unique and beautiful piece of nature, giving your kitchen that luxurious, natural appeal only granite can provide.
Our Granite is a carefully selected range of the most popular and consistent granite from around the world, providing a stunning finishing touch and bringing your beautiful new granite worktop to life.
All of our Granite Worktops come with Stainless steel reinforcing bars to cut outs included as standard. This will give your new kitchen structural integrity and support your Granite kitchen worktops.
Our worktops are coated with Granite Stain Shield, which is a unique stain protection provided by J.Rotherham for unrivalled protection for your worktop.
Granite slabs are chosen for their rich dense colours and where applicable, consistency of colour. Worktops are cut from the same block which ensures the best consistency of tone and colour.
They come with a 50mm smooth underside, providing a beautiful smooth finishing touch.
Our Granite kitchen worktops come with a 10 year Limited Warranty, which is a genuine commitment that you are being provided with the very best quality.
Advantages of Granite Worktops
Granite is formed over millions of years and gives you a unique piece of nature in your home.
The slow crystallisation of molten magma deep in the Earth’s crust makes Granite a very hard material, and therefore allows it to take a high polish.
Granite is an igneous rock and therefore it is very hard, making it difficult to scratch or damage.
10 Year Warranty
A genuine commitment that you are being provided with the very best quality.
Granite has very good heat resistance but is not heat proof.
Granite has a naturally cool surface, making it ideal for food preparation.
Easy Maintenance Mild detergent or hot soapy water is the only maintenance usually required.
Granite Worktops Characteristics
Granite is a natural material quarried directly from the earth’s surface. Variation of colour, brecciation (the formation of rock composed of angular fragments embedded in a fine grained matrix) and pitting (natural surface indentations) within the slabs is an inherent part of the nature and the beauty of these materials and is not considered to be a fault.
Every piece of granite used for worktops is unique and we cannot guarantee that what is on display or seen as a sample will be the exact tone and colour variation received.
Small fissures are commonly found in granite, these are natural flaws inherent in the material and a result of its natural formation. Where not excessive and a risk to the structural integrity of the granite these are deemed acceptable.
Small chips or scratches may also arise during the manufacture and installation of granite worktops and we reserve the right to replace or repair to a professional standard any minor defects at our own discretion.
Fabrication processes involving polishing, e.g. drainer grooves and edge profiling, can appear very slightly duller than the surface polish. Leather finish will show marks more readily than a polished finish.
All worktops are provided with a Care and Maintenance Kit and 10 Year Limited Warranty. Please follow the instructions included to ensure you keep your worktops in pristine condition.
Granite Stain Shield
This special Nano technology stain repellent is professionally applied to every Granite worktop piece; the high performance impregnator contains highly active nano-particles providing the highest level of protection for granite worktops. The active components build a thin invisible film inside the capillary system of the stone which repels water, oil and grease and ensures the granite retains its natural beauty and character.
Once the stain resistant impregnator has been applied, typically to a depth of 5mm, it prevents the micro-pores inherent within the granite from absorbing liquids.
The impregnator still allows the granite to breathe so that it retains its natural appearance.
This high end product is backed up by our specialist technical team. Please call the dedicated number on our care kits should you have any issues with your surface or wish to discuss cleaning and maintenance in the future.
Using stain shield nano-technology and the correct after care products will ensure that the impregnator offers the maximum protection and that the granite retains its natural beauty, even around areas of heavy wear such as around the hob and sink area.
