Frequently Asked Questions Benchtops

Your bench top prices appear to be cheaper than my other quotes. Why is that?

Incredible Bench Tops use efficient stone equipment to process the stone. We also bulk purchase our standard colours of stone and work on low margins.

I'm sourcing my cabinets from another company. Can I still purchase the bench top from Incredible Kitchens?

We would be happy to provide you with just a bench top. Our on-line calculator will give you instant pricing. Why not compare the pricing and quality of our cabinets.

I want to upgrade my existing kitchen by installing a stone bench top. Can you do that for me?

We are happy to replace bench tops on existing kitchens. You can get a price of stone from our on-line calculator. Fill out our enquiry form for prices to remove and install your bench top.

I notice your on-line pricing gives me doesn't include delivery and installation?

The price of delivery and installation varies depending on what suburb you live in and the access to your kitchen area. A measure, delivery and installation typically starts at $600. If you fill in the drop-down enquiry form we will contact you with installation pricing.

How much does a stone bench top typically cost?

It depends on the size and thickness. Bench tops large enough to suit the average size kitchen start at around $1500 ex-factory.

What's it likely to cost me for new kitchen cabinets with a stone benchtop?

A typical Incredible Kitchen with Melamine cabinets and Engineered Stone benchtop costs between $5000 – $7000 ex- factory.

Why is there a range of prices?

The size of the kitchen and choice of cabinets determines the price. For example, adding our German made corners mechanisms to a large kitchen puts you at the top end in terms of cabinet and bench top pricing.

Am I able to install my own bench top?

This depends on your skill and the shape of the bench top. The two pieces of stone for a galley style kitchen are relatively easy to install as they have no joins. An L or U-shaped design is more difficult to fit with joins. We do have many builders and DIYers successfully fit their own tops. Send us an enquiry and we are happy to give you advice.

What is engineered stone?

Engineered stone is a manufactured stone product that is fabricated from 93% to 95% quartz stone mixed with colours and resin to bind the stone together.

How does engineered stone vary from natural granite?

Engineered stone has less colour variation and is less porous than granite.

Does engineered stone need polishing or resealing?

No,the resin involved in the manufacturing process is evenly mixed through the stone to permanently seal it. We provide cleaning and maintenance instructions with each bench top.

Is Engineered Stone heat proof?

Your warranty does not cover placing hot pots and pans directly on to the bench top.

Can engineered stone be repaired?

While chips and cracks are not common they can often be repaired. We can connect you with professional stone repairers.

I see you offer two brands of stone on-line. Are Silestone and Uniquartz reputable brands?

Silestone which is manufactured in Spain is one of the original manufacturers of engineered stone. They have an international reputation and offer a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty provided that the bench top is fitted by an authorized installer.

Uniquartz is another established supplier that offers a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty. Incredible Bench Tops provides a 10-year warranty on the installation of both products.
