Cut Stone Benchtops Cut Caesarstone

How to cut stone benchtops is the same as cutting Caesarstone or any quartz brand material.

There is always a right way and a wrong way. Many people that have experienced the wrong way will tell you they are still finding dust after months or years from the cutting process when a modification had to be done on site.

Not only is dry cutting a dusty process, but dangerous due to the silica in the quartz being cut. But by doing the cutting of a stone benchtop correctly the dust is totally minimised to the area where the cutting is occuring. Not only does this mean you will not have to spend day…. yes days cleaning up the dust mess throughout the house, but also your an not exposed to the silica dust more than needed.

Many people think they can cut stone benchtop themselves, we it is not quite that easy as stone is not forgiving. If you miss calculate your measurements, your centre or straightness you will be left with a hole that nothing fits or too big at worse leaving you to hunt down another sink or hotplate that will cover the bigger hole… that is if you can find one. Not only that but not all diamond blades are the same and without being to technical the diamond/tungsten matrix that makes up the diamond segments of a blade have different ratios etc depending on the material they are designed to cut. Hence a quartz blade will not cut granite or marble, a granite blade will destroy and/or crack marble, a concrete blade will do the same to quartz. See below a client cut their own sink cutout in caesarstone only to find it was not that easy…. and cracked to stone benchtop is a common occurrence for DIYers. Which is about double the cost of having the stone benchtop cut.

The way we cut stone benchtops is in a capsule that contains the dust so it can be filtered or extracted out, leaving a much better result as you can see from the photos. It is about a two hour process.

For the cost of getting a stone professional that knows what they are doing is worth more than the investment.
