Some General Granite Transformations FAQs
Q: Do you need to demolish or remove the benchtop?
- No! Granite Transformations’ unique slabs are manufactured to fit directly over your existing benchtop. Using special adhesives, the slabs are adhered directly to the benchtop surface. Our benchtops can be installed over any hard, durable surface.
Q: How long does an installation by Granite Transformation usually take?
- While each project varies (depending on the size of the space being transformed), Granite Transformations typically installs a standard size kitchen benchtop and splashback in 1 to 2 days!
Q: Is there any mess and disruption involved in a Granite Transformations installation?
- There is very limited mess, since there is usually no demolition involved.
Q: Why use Granite Transformations?

- Yes, Granite Transformations offers cabinet refacing where your old cabinet doors are simply replaced with new doors. Refacing your cabinets can save you money, time and stress associated with the demolition of existing cabinetry.
Q: As the stone is only 6.5m thick, is it strong?

If you are building an addition to your home, we can create any kind of custom benchtop, wall, or flooring that you need. We also makeover kitchens and bathrooms inside boats and recreational vehicles.
Q: What’s the best way to clean my Granite Transformations’ benchtops without damaging them?
- The beauty of our benchtops is that they require little maintenance, and don’t require any specialty cleaning products (as slab granite does). Our benchtops are nonporous, which means they will not absorb colours or odours. Use a mild, all-purpose cleaner as outlined in our care and maintenance guide.
