Forget the barbie, how about a kiln?

Posted On 04/07/2019
Forget the barbie, how about a kiln. Our customers in North Devon fancied exactly that, something a little different.

So we helped them integrate their kiln on a lovely slab of Balmoral Red Granite.

They choose this granite because it went well with the local quarried stone used to build the house.

Balmoral Red Granite is quarried in Southwest Finland and has been one of the classic’s for many years.

This granite is 30mm thick, and in order to cover the junctions between stone & granite worktop.

We installed a drop down section of granite which is adhered to the underside of the granite worktop.

We also installed a granite up stand at the rear of the granite worktop.

The circular section in the centre of the granite worktop was cut on our CNC routing centre.

Our final job was to apply the stone sealer.

You will probably have read in many articles that granite will stain easily, and the lighter the granite, the more easily it will stain.

These statements are true, so it’s important to seal granite.

We are certified applicators and stockists of Dry Treat Stain Proof, which is a micro porous sealant for natural stone and porcelain.

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 countertop 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 it’s best to use a ph neutral product.

And we recommend using Hanafin Rejuvenata, which we also stock.
