What our customers say…

  • Praveen Damodhar

    Five star is less for this enthusiastic local family business team.

    Don’t know where to start.. Right from quoting, surveying, patiently waiting for our kitchen unit to be finished to installing.

    Sue from the office took lot of time to explain the details and helped us selecting. Thank you Sue.

    Paul who came for the measurements, the most jovial person I have met and got a good sense of humour. Loved the way he explained the details. Fantastically worked on my complex work top which comes between the two pillars. The work top was fitted by 3 young lads and they were so helpful and took time to explain the details. Always had a smile on the face and worked with great integrity.

    Keep it up and highly recommended.

  • Tim L

    I have recently replaced my kitchen but rather than get the kitchen company to supply the worktops I went directly to Impala Stone for supply and fit. The quality of product and the service has been excellent and the overall cost was more competitive than the kitchen company. Impala stone have been extremely accommodating and tailored my worktops to meet my requirements (LED light grooves, shark nose/Concord edge profile, drainage grooves). Highly recommended!

  • Richard Wilson

    Fantastic friendly and professional service from the outset right through to completion. The end product looks amazing and is of a high quality. If I were to have kitchen worktops or anything similar installed in the future I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company again.

  • Eleanor Spratt

    Extremely happy with our finished worktop with Impala Stone. Good communication and work ethic. We chose the Oro Fantistico and it matches our units very well.

  • Dan Walker

    Visited the showroom and dealt with a really helpful young lady who took one look at our colour sample for our kitchen doors and immediately suggested the perfect quartz worktop.
    Now fitted, it looked even better.

  • John Seamer

    Highly delighted with the finished product. Shaun and Matt had some technical problems during the manufacturing of the components but they kept us fully updated along with Lisa in the office and the final result is stunning. Thankyou to all concerned. We will send you some photographs once it is all finished.

  • Gemma Walters

    I couldn’t recommend Impala stone enough. The staff are incredibly helpful, we asked for several quotes for different quartz and it was never a bother. We did a lot of research and found Impala had an amazing selection and their prices were by far the best compared to other companies. They are not pushy and allow you to take samples home. The templating is very precise and the worktop fitters are very considerate. I couldn’t be happier with our worktops, we opted for the Alaska quartz worktops. Thank you so much!

  • Lou W

    Fabulous job done by Impala Stone. Choosing the granite was the trickiest bit as there is such a vast choice. After problems with the initial granite chosen from one of Impalas suppliers Impala sent one of their guys to pick me up and take me to supplier in Nottingham. I was given lots of help and advice choosing Granite to help avoid picking one with potential flaws. Unfortunately my lovely new ceramic sink developed a number of cracks but the issue was dealt with and the sink replaced. In hindsight I would not choose a ceramic sink again, even though it looks fabulous. A good company will address any issues and make sure you are 100% happy.Would not hesitate to recommend Impala.

FAQs

A list of most asked questions and answers.

  • Our showroom is open Monday – Friday 9am till 5pm, open Saturday open 10am till 3pm..

  • Our manufacturing process takes one week. Meaning our template and installation are generally a week apart, this is providing immediate availability of slabs.

  • To read our check list of things to have in place for template click here, for our fitting checklist click here.

  • As granite varies in colour and pattern, we suggest always viewing slabs to choose the correct colour for your home. Whole slabs can be viewed at one of our local suppliers, details of which can be given upon request. You are also always welcome to view the slabs when they arrive at our factory.

  • Depending on suppliers, we usually receive slabs from order in around a week or less. However special-order slabs, from Spain or Germany, may take up to four weeks to arrive with us for manufacture.

  • We ask for a 50% deposit on placement of order, the remaining balance is to be taken two days prior to installation. Trade terms of thirty-day invoice can be discussed in our office to qualifying companies.

  • Granite slab sizes vary from slab to slab, however, are generally slightly larger than quartz. Quartz slabs come in two sizes, 3.05m x 1.4m or 3.2m x 1.6m. Slab sizes are dependent on colour and availability.

  • Quartz is a man-made material which comprises of up to 97% natural quartz and pigment, the remaining is made from a resin based bonding agent. Granite, however, is a natural igneous rock quarried specifically for interior cosmetics and surfaces.
