About Natural Stone
Natural Stone is a general term used to describe many of the naturally occurring stones mined from the earth, including Marble, Granite, Quartzite, Travertine, Onyx and Limestone
The cost of any stone project is entirely dependent on the scope of works. However, if you require a specialised cutting job, have a complex design or require a large amount of stone, natural stone will likely be dearer as it requires a higher level of skilled workmanship and care to manufacture the benchtop. We do, however, have a wide range of colours and we can provide a cost-effective alternative to meet your budget if you so desire.
For more information on the difference between the two stones, please click here.
We will seal your natural stone bench top during production and installation. It is recommended you reseal your stone within 6 months of installation and annually thereafter. However, how often you will need to seal your natural stone will depend on how often you use your benchtop and the brand of sealer that you select.
All natural stones will perform slightly differently depending on what family of stone they belong to. Natural stone performs well in kitchens, but you should factor what kind of use/how much use your kitchen gets when selecting which type of stone to use. Natural stone is also great for outdoor applications, fireplaces, vanities, staircases and more.
Natural stone is porous, and thus will need to be regularly sealed to avoid excess spillage penetration and to prevent damage. Marble is more porous than granite, however, some stones are easier to maintain in certain applications or areas of the home. No stone is chip proof, so a reasonable amount of care should be taken with any stone top to prevent chips and scratches. Please give us a call for more information on the maintenance of natural stone, as it differs depending on the type of stone and application.
As part of our order process, should you select a natural stone for your project, we will recommend you view the slab either at our suppliers warehouse or in our factory prior to production.

Hi Jackie & Nav, just thought I’d send you a quick note to make you day brighter, the service that Stone Tech have been giving our clients is making them very happy, thank you both and the whole team. It’s great for me to go into the clients home and the clients are raving about Stone Tech’s service. I’ve been getting great comments from clients for quite a while now.

Service was fantastic
We started the quote process in November 2018 with many changes and finalised everything before Christmas, they were so professional and patient with all our changes, there service was fantastic. We had our kitchen, bathroom vanity, laundry and bar bench tops installed yesterday, The process from beginning to end was very professional, the installer was very careful and did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend Stone-Tech Australia, and they were very competitive in price of my Smartstone
I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know that you guys do a really good job. I’m glad I decided to work with you. It was a very easy decision to make after seeing your world class factory and your companies passion for your craft. The finish on the bench and splashbacks is impeccable and I will be telling all my work colleges and friends that you are the best in the business. Thanks again love your work.

A quick note to say thank you for the service and assistance I received from the team at Stone-Tech – you were all so easy to deal with. A particularly big shout out to the guys who delivered and installed my new bench top, they were friendly, polite and worked quickly and cleanly. I’m so happy with the finished result, it looks spectacular!

When renovating our kitchen for our older home, we visited many shops before landing at Stone-Tech. The reason we chose to work with them first and foremost are their staff and customer service. They walked us through all of the options and discussed them with us not making us feel hurried or pressured. The staff had appropriate training not only in the products available, but in how to treat a customer well which is incredibly rare in this day and age. After looking at several products, we chose a piece of Kashmiri White Granite. It was fabricated beautifully and we had a number of edge profiles to choose from. The measurer was professional, thorough and accurate. The installers were amazing, very polite and paid attention to every detail. They took pride in their work and clearly wanted to achieve a top quality end product. They worked cleanly and cleaned up after themselves leaving us with a beautiful benchtop that people are remarking on already. We are very glad we chose Stone-Tech for this pivotal piece of our long-awaited kitchen renovation. This was a quality job from first contact to last.

Wow, I am so happy with my bench stone it is amazing!! Stone-Tech were so helpful from start to finish. My builder left me with unfinished kitchen and stone tech did an amazing job. They managed to flushmount my induction cooktop and match everything perfectly. From the lovely guy who did my quote to the installer, I can not be happier. I had a small issue during install, I called stone-tech and it was sorted immediately. Professional and friendly. I will definitely use them again for all my stone work.
Very courteous and friendly
We thank you and all your staff that we were involved with our new Caesarstone benchtop from: the initial quoting, checking of measurements, Receptionist, booking and accounting and to the installers
We found all were very keen to help and were very courteous and friendly, the procedure was very smoothly carried out. We will be using your company again in our business and would appreciate you passing on our thanks to all concerned.

Ian & Tamra, Middle Cove, NSW
Good Morning Mandy (and Daniel), many thanks for looking after this. The cooktop bench top is now re-installed and is perfectly aligned and looks great. Also the splashback, breakfast benchtop, waterfalls all look great.
The installers A. and his assistant both are quite passionate about their work and I am especially impressed with the “hairline” joints (picture attached).
Much appreciated and big thank you once again.
Bobby Carrington, Kirribilli, NSW
End product was fantastic
Stone-tech supplied and installed granite & caesar stone into our new kitchen, bathrooms and formal dining room fireplace and travertine internal stairway step treads. The staff were easy to deal with and reliable. The end product is fantastic and we are very happy with the result. Design advice was also available and the installers were efficient and professional. I would use these guys again and strongly recommend them to others.
Pleasant and efficient
I was looking to renovate my kitchen, and a friend of mine asked me to check out this place for options for my bench top. Stone-tech at Northmead , on Boundary Road not only stock a wide range of stones from different companies but the lovely lady I met, her name is Jackie Yousif, was extremely approachable, pleasant, efficient, very customer oriented and knowledgeable, not to forget how patient she was all the way through and took a lot of time explaining the different ranges. I will recommend Stone-Tech at Northmead, NSW to anyone and everyone.
Absolute stand out quality
To summarise my experience/ on going relationship with Stone-Tech;
-A great team of people to work with
-Turn around time (measure to install) is always on the quicker side.
-Always willing to help you during and after sales
-The end result is always like icing on the cake for my projects, real value for money and even more importantly a pleasing and happy reaction from my customers
I have been working together with Stone-Tech for 7 plus years and their work is always one of the stand out features of our projects. Working together with Stone-Tech is quite easy and hassle free. Their attention to detail is very exceptional. No job is too big or small and too hard or simple. I often send my customers to the Stone-Tech show room and I know they will just be looked after, my customers just fall in love with what they have to offer. Stone-Tech displays and offer quite an extensive range such as natural marble, limestone and granite just to name a few together with man made stone such as Caeser Stone, Quantum Quartz and Smart Stone together with many others that are on the market.
Weather you a do it your self home renovator, kitchen manufacturer or a builder and If you are in the market for a one stop shop stone supplier who will provide you with excellent service and a very pleasing result do not hesitate to contact Stone-Tech

Absolutely in love
Stone Tech has done an amazing job !! We are absolutely in love with our kitchen stone. Everything was great from the initial consultation at the show room to final installation of the benchtop. The staff were great to deal with. Even though we had some issues they were all addressed in a timely and professional manner and we couldn’t be happier. Service was outstanding !! I would highly recommend Stone-Tech and I would use them again.

Quality turnaround and install
Hi Mandy, just to thank you for all doing this job so quickly for me.
Builder is extremely happy with the turnaround and with the quality of the install.
He just called me about awarding us a large job so obviously doing things like this, over and above, helps us get more work and we couldn’t have done it without the help of great contractors like you.
Please pass on my thanks to the team.

True stone technicians
Step one was a visit to Stone Tech’s showroom at Boundary Rd Northmead. What was on show was most impressive, but what resonated with us with distinction was the friendly and accommodating nature of the staff – what a warm and satisfying experience that was! Shout out to Mandy! Step two was a visit from the check and measure representative from Stone Tech – Brad. Brad made a courtesy call to confirm the appointment and then another to advise of the specific arrival time. He arrived at the time he advised! His counsel on specific aspects of our Stone Benchtops was invaluable – all with true professionalism and confidence that can only stem from deep expertise. Brad’s friendly nature was a welcome added bonus. His input was outstanding and for that he gets 11/10 (yes. eleven out of ten; an expression of our appreciation for his input). Step 3 was the installation. After the sales (Step One) and the check and measure (Step two), our hopes and expectations were very high. True to their word, Stone Tech sent us two installers who installed our laundry benchtops without any fuss and left no mess or damage whatsoever. Given the skill they demonstrated, and the ease which they went about their task, we believe the term ‘installers’ is a completely inadequate term; instead we favour the term ‘ Stone Technicians’. They were simply brilliant ‘Stone Technicians’. Step 4 is a long happy life with our finished laundry – complete with Stone benchtops! We commend Stone Tech for the experience they shared with us – customer service, quality product, highest quality/professional/helpful/friendly people. We hope it goes without saying that we have no hesitation in recommending Stone Tech. We have taken the time and made the effort to share this review as a reflection of the care, time and effort that the whole Stone Tech team extended to us. Warmest Regards Mark and Karen.
