Small Business of the Year 2018. At Primethorpe we offer 5 stock sizes all off which can be used to also create bespoke custom sized hearths.
Brazilian Slate - This is our bestselling slate, imported from Brazil due to its exceptional quality, extreme density and its natural riven markings. This premium slate is available in either a beautiful black/blue or a charming grey shade.Standard size - This is a straight from stock size, ideal for those who required no cutting size or would happily cut the stone to size themselves on site. Cut to size Rectangle - This option is for those who would like us to cut to a custom/bespoke size in a rectangle or square shape. Cut to size T Shape - This option is for those who would like us to cut to a custom/bespoke T shape. Please note we will cut in a single piece T shape unless instructed otherwise.
Please see below a guide to the various edge options Square edge - Is our lowest costing option, this edge gives a very modern and contemporary look, however edge style does leave a sharp top edge and may not be suitable if children or pets will be around the hearth. All four edges of the hearth will be sawn. Bevelled/Chamfered edge - Similar style to the square edge as described above but this option is a little more child and pet friendly as the top edge is sanded to give a 5mm bevelled finish.
With this option the longest front edge and 2 side edges will be bevelled, the other side (back edge) will be a Square Edge. Half Bullnosed edge - This process gives an incredibly smooth rounded appearance. This product is 30mm thickness. We are happy to help with any requests/requirements that you may have but we can only do so if we receive a message from you giving us an idea of your preferred appearance and style.
Please note this product is not honed or polished. From experience we have found that honed or polished slate can become quite troublesome as it scratches and marks very easily. We pre-treat this product with an oil-based sealer before we dispatch it. This offers instant protection against staining or scratching and will also help make regular cleaning easier. We normally use a colour enhancing sealer that will give the material a matt finish and darken the stone slightly as we feel aesthetically this is the best product for the hearth however we can offer an invisible sealer on request or if preferable we can leave the stone untreated.If you have selected a custom/bespoke cut to size hearth, please forward us your dimensions, a sketch/diagram of your requirements is extremely helpful, we request that all dimensions are in either CM or MM and not FT or INCHES. If you have selected a standard stock size no dimension confirmation is needed. Although we have no installation experience, we strongly advise that you allow for stone expansion when sending us your dimensions. Stone can expand and retract when exposed to intense high or low changes in temperature, therefore allowing 5mm - 10mm expansion gap for any point where the hearth meets a solid wall will massively reduce the risk off cracking when hot. The mentioned expansion gap should then be filled with a flexible product i. Heat proof silicone or mastic in a similar colour as the stone ordered as to make it unnoticeable, please do not fill with a cement-based product. If so, please let us know and we will aim for it to arrive on the requested day. Please note we can only offer arrivals on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Fridays.
If you would like to confirm your mobile number that would be extremely helpful. Lastly any specific requirements for your order, for example that you would like a very naturally looking hearth with plenty of riven markings or a piece of stone that is smooth as possible or that you want a 2 piece T shape rather than a single piece.
Please appreciate that if no instruction is given then the stone for your order will be selected at random from our stock and will be cut in a single piece. Also, worth noting in some instances we may use an epoxy stone filler and/or sand smooth part of the stone surface where we feel the appearance of the stone will benefit from such an application, additionally although we try to be as accurate as possible when cutting to your given dimension, we do allow as 5mm tolerance before we deem the cut to be unacceptable.
