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.

      We are able to cut any stone including caesarstone or any other engineered stone or quartz

      Please note:
      We make sure there is NO DUST allowed to travel through out the property.
      We use a special technique that isolates the harmful dust to the area being worked on.
      Our tech us special powered filtration systems to scrub the dust. So there is NO EXPOSURE to them or your home.

      If we are cutting a new sink or cooktop, we will need either to be on site at the time of the appointment. So our techs can check fitment and also test fitment on completion.

      All plumbing, gas, and water needs to be isolated and disconnected if applicable.

      The smoke alarms will also need to be isolated if they are hard wired

    Our new house is almost completed and the Abey Schock sink was fitted into the Caesrastone benchtop a few weeks ago. I didn’t notice till a few days ago that the cutout is too big by about 4mm lengthwise. They have positioned the sink so that there is a 2mm gap each end and say they are going to caulk the gap. I will not relent, the bench needs to be replaced as Schock don’t make a bigger sink that will cover the gap and I think the caulking will be unsightly. At the moment the end fixing brackets are secured to the bench with the sink not sitting on the stone. Could the pressure of the brackets crack the Caesarstone do you think?
