Quartz is the manmade option that is a great alternative to a natural stone countertop such as granite or marble.

Design right through to installation and finish we had expert advice and service second to none...

We had a quartz kitchen worktop installed by McMonagle Marble & Granite. I couldn't recommend this company highly enough. From design right through to installation and finish we had expert advice and service second to none and the finished product is stunning. Excellent fitters too for whom nothing was a problem. Thanks again to this company for a beautiful finish to a beautiful kitchen supplied by Pattersons.

Arriving when they should, doing a great job and leaving the place tidy...

We picked a quartz worktop for our kitchen. It looks amazing and is easy to keep clean due to the polished surface. The service was excellent, there was no fuss. Everyone just arriving when they should, doing a great job and leaving the place tidy once they were finished. Couldn't have asked for anything more. I have already recommended McMonagle Marble and Granite to a number of people as well as the company that supplied our kitchen who were also very impressed with the workmanship and quality of the product.


Garrett C

I found McMonagles to be very professional...

I found McMonagles to be very professional from our first contact with them. In my opinion one of the most import factors in our kitchen was the measuring and templating of the new work surface. This was done very professionally and with constructive discussion. Without this proper foundation I feel we would not have achieved the result we got.

The new worktop was then fitted without any problems and we are very pleased.

10 out of 10

McMonagles service was nothing short of outstanding. I spoke to many companies before choosing them and I have no regrets. I would highly recommend them to anyone. 10 out of 10 for product knowledge, communication, ability, work quality and patience. Nothing was too much trouble. I will certainly be using them again. Noreen in particular was outstanding.

The quality of the worktop I had fitted for my new kitchen is superb...

The quality of the worktop I had fitted for my new kitchen is superb, it has been measured and fitted to perfection, surface is really easy to keep clean, its hard wearing and it looks good. I'm really pleased that I chose Quartz and even more pleased that McMonagles came highly recommended. The service did not disappoint. So happy, from the initial measurement to choosing the worktop to the installation, service was seamless. I was very happy with the fitting and the quality of the worktop for my new kitchen, it was definitely a good investment. I would highly recommend McMonagle Marble & Granite, the time and care taken by staff to ensure you have a quality product for your property when you are spending a lot of money is reassuring.

McMonagles were excellent...

McMonagles were excellent and more than helpful and very good at assisting me in picking the right colour granite to go with my kitchen.


Elaine

..without a doubt the most professional and impressive.

... you installed granite worktops for us back in April, I just wanted to thank you so much for such an excellent service. We have now (mostly) finally completed the house renovation, and out of all the tradespeople we dealt with, you have been without a doubt the most professional and impressive. I hope business is good, and look forward to having to deal with you again at some point in the future.

Many Thanks

He made sure of every detail & even pointed out things that we hadn't thought about...

We were having a new kitchen installed & were recommended to McMonagles by the Kitchen designer. The kitchen showroom we were using didn't have a sample of the quartz we wanted so Mcmonagles sent a sample to us through the post free of charge.

Once we had ordered the worktops from them we did not have long to wait at all. The office rang through with an appointment to meet their man to template the kitchen worktop, a breakfast bar & utility room counter. He was very thorough at measuring up, taking in excess of 2 hours to do so, he made sure of every detail & even pointed out things that we hadn't thought about. He measured up on the Monday, they called me on the Tuesday to tell me everything was cut & they returned on Wednesday to fit. I am so pleased with the results. The finish is amazing, they also gave us a window sill made of the same quartz & connected it to the upstand. Everything looks amazing. They have ticked every box & recommend them without hesitation.


Ian B

Fitted to precision...
