Joins and Various Finishes available:
Because Granite and Marble are not man-made some Benchtops will require joins, we don't use more joins than we need and place them in the least obvious positions possible. Joins are kept as small as practical generally around 2mm and we level all the granite to make the transition from one piece to the other as smooth as possible. The joins are filled with specified granite epoxy glue and normally coloured to suit the granite or marble being used.
Two finishes are available, The most popular is the fully polished surface, which is achieved by using various grades of diamonds and water to achieve a mirror finish both Granite and marble are in their most sealed natural state when fully polished
Honed finish as exactly as above but only 3/4 polished give a flat soft matt surface, thus meaning the Granite or Marble is in a less sealed state than it would be if fully polished
Sink mounting options:
Top-mount - Most economical option whereby the bowl is fitted on top of the granite, resulting in a raised lip around the surface
Flush-mount - The flange of the bowl is recessed down into the stone until it is flush with the surface
Under-mount - The bowl hole is cut out and fully polished around the edge the bowl is then mounted underneath the granite leaving the top surface of the stone clear and uninterrupted by a stainless flange
Recess Under-mount - The exact same process as under-mount and finished by rebating out the underside of the cut-out resulting in the bowl being lifted toward the surface by approximately 15 mm.
Semi-Recessed cut-outs - Most commonly used with vanity basins where the bowl is exposed past the front of the granite or when a butler sink is being used in the kitchen
