This is the third time I have had a Humphries installation. The first visit saw an old lounge fireplace being removed and updated with a splendid marble surround and traditional open grate fireplace. During the second visit, another old fireplace in the dining room was removed, and a free standing wood burner, installed. The most recent visit saw the lounge open grate being replaced with a very smart recessed wood burner to fit into the existing fireplace surround. The service on all three occasions was exemplary, the staff keeping us well informed and very friendly and professional.

Granite Worktops

The Perfect Choice for Kitchens & Bathrooms

Granite is one of the hardest natural materials on earth, formed over millions of years from molten magma beneath the surface. It’s hardy properties and aesthetic beauty make it the perfect choice for kitchen and bathroom work surfaces that will stand the test of time.

Granite worktops suit any décor style, from traditional to modern. Comprised of mica, quartz and feldspar the natural formation processes mean each slab has a unique pattern, colour and texture.

We supply and expertly fit carefully honed and polished granite worktops for kitchen and bathroom counters and central islands, sourced from various suppliers, in attractive shades with exquisite veining and crystalline patterning to suit your requirements.

Our bespoke granite worktops are available in a wide radius of our stone masonry workshop in Hungerford, Berkshire, including the towns of Andover, Basingstoke, Newbury and Swindon.

Why Granite Worktops are Superior

Granite is regarded as a luxury worktop choice, favoured for high end designs, but it is well worth the investment because of its proven longevity, natural beauty and other superior properties that put it in a league of its own, such as:

Scratch Resistance

Granite worktops make ideal chopping boards. They resist damage from kitchen utensils. The only thing that can scratch super-hard granite is another piece of granite.

Heat Tolerance

Granite’s melting point is somewhere around 2,300°F (1,260°C), so it’s unlikely you’ll ever cause any damage by putting a hot pot down on your granite countertop. Be careful though if the granite surface has an overlying seal which could become compromised by direct excessive heat.

Food Preparation

Granite makes an ideal food preparation surface. It is cool to the touch, and being polished means it has few pores through which to absorb liquids, making it a sanitary surface to work on.

Easy Maintenance

A wipe-down with a microfibre cloth using a PH neutral cleaning liquid is all that is required to keep your granite worktops shiny and clean.

From the Quarry to Your Home

Granite has a long journey from where it is quarried to when it ends up on your kitchen or bathroom counter tops.

Blocks of granite are blasted and drilled from the earth, then transported to fabrication plants to be sawn into slabs of various thicknesses. Most of the granite used for countertops in the UK comes from abroad, having been quarried in India, China, Brazil or Africa. Spain is also a large granite producer.

Britain has its own supplies of granite, but this is used mainly for producing aggregate or for decorative purposes to repair historic buildings.

Our stone workers at BWF Humphries receive the granite slabs and shape, finish and polish each one according to the customer’s particular requirements, so you get a granite worktop hand-crafted uniquely to fit your kitchen or bathroom counters.

Granite is certainly a top choice that will enhance your home both practically and aesthetically. If you’d like to know more we’d be happy to advise you about your choice of granite kitchen worktops or bathroom counter tops.
