Getting all the correct information is essential when purchasing your granite or quartz worktop so here we have answered the 10 frequently asked questions.

Can you show me samples?

GQ STORE – We can definitely provide you with samples, all you have do it ask. If you wish to see the quality of stone and workmanship we can show you some of our previous worktop fittings.

What is the overall process?

GQ STORE – There are 3 simple stages: template, fabricate and fit. Templating is where a surveyor makes an onsite visit and creates a stencil of your granite or quartz worktop. Our highly experienced stonemasons will then use this template to fabricate the worktop against the granite or quartz chosen. The fabricated stone will then be installed by our very own fitting team to complete the process.

What do I need before templating?

GQ STORE – All you have to do is:
1. Make sure all the base units are securely fitted and bare before the template.
2. Make sure the hob, sink and tap are on site when the surveyor visits.

What is the turnaround time?

Do you fabricate the worktop in-house or onsite?

GQ STORE – The worktop will be fabricated in our in-house factory. Minor works like cutting holes or milling down any extra stone may be done on site and we aim to do this is as quickly and neatly as possible. The GQ Store do not outsource any of our work and all workmanship is inspected before fittings take place.

Can I see the slab that will be used for the worktop?

What are the payment terms?

The second payment is 45% of the agreed cost, this payment is taken after the template has been carried out and verifies that production of the worktop can proceed. The remaining 50% is taken after the worktop has been installed.
