Make your interior distinct
Other than supplying natural and synthetic stone surfaces, Canvastone also provides homes and businesses quality countertop and flooring installation and replacement services for granite, marble, travertine, engineered quartz, and an array of other stone materials.
If you decide to replace your countertops with a natural or engineered stone product – as opposed to ceramic tiling, for example – the services of a reputable stone countertop replacement contractor will guarantee your new counters are installed to the highest standards.
In fact, according to “A Homeowner’s Guide to Natural Stone Countertop Installation” published by Marble Institute of America, the full potential of the natural beauty and durability of stone countertops can only be achieved by professional designers, fabricators, and installers.
Granite countertop and tile installation
Granite is a very hard-wearing substance, with excellent hygienic properties, that’s ideal for countertops and flooring in bathrooms and kitchens.
A granite installation process for tiles and slabs carried out to professional standards will retain its lustred appearance for a long time. The granite countertop will be a visually-striking centrepiece of your kitchen or bathroom that will give you many years of exceptional service.

Marble countertop and flooring installation
Marble is characterised by its timeless elegance, wide choice of colours and beautiful patterns. However, it can be more vulnerable to stains and scratches than granite, so you need to be more careful how you treat it.
The installation of marble floor tiles or marble wall panelling will enhance the look of any room.
A marble countertop installation will add a sense of sophistication in bathrooms and kitchens. What’s more their appearance can be dramatically enhanced by marble splashbacks and bathtub surrounds.
A travertine installation is a good choice if you’re looking to create a feeling that’s subtler than granite or marble.
Travertine is often used for feature walls, wall cladding, bathroom and kitchen countertops, and table tops.
Engineered quartz countertop installation
The manufacturing process of quartz makes this engineered stone more resilient to wear and tear than natural stone surfaces.
The minimal porosity of the product also results in a quartz worktop installation being more resistant to mildew and mould.
Quartz countertop installations are priced on a similar level to mid-range natural stone surfaces.

Canvastone’s stone countertop installation procedure
1. Your countertop selection
Each piece of natural stone is unique, with different “movement” of flowing veins and patterns. Naturally-occurring fissures, pits, and cracks may also be present in the samples or slabs you’re viewing.
Canvastone’s services can include filling crevices in natural stones with a glossy resin to enhance the appearance of the polished slab.
2. Edge profiles
Professionally-finished edge profiles will be smooth along the entire length of your countertop.
Edge profiles can add an elegant touch to your countertops, but profiles with sharp corners and narrow projections are more prone to chipping than those with a curved profile – we’ll offer you appropriate advice.
3. The seams
The layout of the seams of countertops plays a big role in the overall appearance of the completed installation.
If you’ve chosen a product with obvious veining and movement, we’d pay particular attention to where seams will fall.
Your countertops will be “dry assembled” in your home to make sure of a precise fit before application of a non-staining adhesive.
After the countertops have been installed and the seams filled, a sealant will be required for natural stones because of their porosity. Engineered quartz doesn’t need to be sealed because it’s virtually non-porous.
If your countertop comprises tiles as opposed to slabs, and they have obvious veins, a stone countertop specialist will ensure the veining runs in the same direction.
5. Final inspection
At the end of the installation process, you and our contractor will inspect the job together, giving you the opportunity to raise any concerns or request further finishing touches.
Once you’re completely satisfied with the work, your warranty is activated.
