A template is an exact replica of the required granite worktops. Taking all accurate measurements of the kitchen units and cut outs for hobs and sinks, all the shaping and overhang required. This is then used to manufacture the granite worktops ensuring a precise and accurate cutting of the granite for a perfect work surface installation.

Beware of some companies who claim they do not need to template before fitting, and cut on site using mobile equipment on the installation day. Using hand held grinders and polishers in your kitchen or living room can often resort in having to chisel the walls and needing to scribe the back of the granite edge to install the work surface. Resulting in very poor quality work surfaces plus a lot of dust, mess and noise.
