Our customers in Plymouth choose brown silk granite worktops for their kitchen.
Brown silk granite worktops are brown (grey/brown) in colour with a white/cream veining.
This granite is quarried in Brazil where a lot of the real nice stones are found.
Our customers found the lightly coloured quartz vein to be a lovely feature.
And on this run of worktop, it looks like a stone has been caught in a lava flow.
Or maybe a pebble is breaking the surface of a running river.
Either way, natures way of producing a piece of art like this is the reason many people choose natural stone over a composite stone.
We carried out the normal items of fabrication on these brown silk granite worktops.
Sawn cut outs for an over mounted sink & hob.
And finished off with a pencil round edge profile and up stands.
I’m sure you have probably read in many articles that granite will stain easily.
And these statements are true, so we seal all of our granite worktops before they leave the workshop.
We are certified applicators and stockists of Dry Treat Stain Proof, which is a micro porous sealant for natural stone and porcelain.
You can view all the necessary information on Dry Treats website here www.drytreat.com
Due to Dry Treats unique micro porous technology, the sealant actually lines the capillaries of the stone.
So it sits within the stone rather than on top like the old surface sealers used to.
This means that you don’t have to re-seal your worktops every 6 to 12 months.
You can go without re-sealing for many years.
A granite worktop is easy to clean and using hot soapy water is sufficient most of the time.
But if you want to clean your worktop with a cleaning product, then it’s best to use a Ph neutral product.
And we recommend using Hanafin Rejuvenata, which we also stock.
