Slate has a numerous amount of benefits working as worksurfaces. One of the main benefits being that it's a non-porous product, making it impossible to stain, and discolouring will no longer become a problem. This making maintenance on slate work tops very low compared to your high maintenance work tops such as wood, marble and granite. The slate worktop can be polished or semi-polished to your needs, and the fine grain naturally within the slate makes a perfect and practical surface whilst keeping it's natural tactile finish.
At Harri James we can provide you slate with provision for inset hobs, Belfast or undermount sinks and other appliances and facilities, these cut to the templates provided by yourselves. There will be no worries when slate is placed around sinks or other liquid appliances as slate is perfect for wet environments. We also cut draining grooves to provide water 'run-off'. Different thicknesses of slate are available for your worksurfaces, your standard and most common being 25mm and 30mm.
We provide full cutting and finishing services to satisfy the specifications for your custom made slate worktops. A variety of finishes to the product can be selected from aged, bull nose, mini bull nose, chamfered and square, this making it bespoke to your desired look. We cut the slabs to the largest runs possible for your kitchen, but where 'jointing' is unavoidable we work to push the slate up close, so that the joint is almost invisible to the eye. Leaving only a hairline joint in place, achieving a beautiful and natural look.
