Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are the advantages of choosing laminate?
Laminate is less expensive than many other materials and comes in a wide range of colours and styles. Laminate surfaces are easy to clean and resist staining and scratching. It is easier and less expensive to install than stone and all cut outs on site produce less chance of mistakes, so the installation process is simpler.
2. Do you have colour samples?
Yes, we bring our physical colour samples the day of the initial consult quote to show you. We encourage you not to make your colour choice based on a photo, as it’s not an accurate representation of the true colour.
3. Are you qualified cabinet makers?
Yes, we are qualified cabinet makers.
4. Do you install stone tops?
No, only laminated tops.
5. Do you offer a relaminated service?
No, relaminating isn’t feasible. In many cases re-laminating a bench top costs more than a new bench top.

8. What is the average installation time?

Tops are from 16mm square edge to 50mm tight form. The standard is 33mm thick, profiles are from 10mm square form to 50mm tight form.
10. Is it hard to maintain laminate?
A damp cloth and an all-purpose cleaner will usually remove spills and greasy spots. Rub over with a clean dry cloth to bring it back to new look.
