The resin or glue that has been used to bond your stone bench top to your substrate needs at least 24 hours to harden or go off. It is preferable to book your plumber in for two days after your bench has been installed to ensure that this process has occurred and to avoid any movement that may impact on the structural integrity of your bench. This also applies to inset cook tops. Likewise, it is recommended that splashbacks be installed a minimum of two days after your stone is installed.
Please ensure that any tradesmen that visit after your stone is installed are advised that they cannot sit or stand on the benches and the stone should be protected while tradesmen are working in the vicinity. Please continue to respect your benches by not standing or sitting on them at any time.
