"Remnant" Means Remain From Countertops

Remnant Countertops

Remnant is nothing but a left-out portion of any material after its primary purpose has been utilised. In the stone industry, a Remnant implies half-cut slabs, offcuts, or damaged stone slabs that are apparently not in a first-class condition and hence not favoured by customers generally.

Is Remnant Only A Worktop Offcut?

Remnants can be an outcome of various situations. Sometimes, they are created by damages to any jumbo slabs due to mishandling or, in other cases, left-outs from slabs after the project's primary purpose is completed.

For instance, if a customer orders a Kitchen Worktops with specific dimensions, the stone slab will be fabricated into the required size following the Customer's Kitchen Template. The smaller chunks of stone slabs produced due to this fabrication process are called offcuts.

Offcuts could significantly differ in dimensions depending on the purpose and process that created them.

Using Remnants For Kitchens And Bathrooms

Remnants For Kitchens And Bathrooms

Projects like complete kitchen/bathroom makeovers, including kitchen worktops, kitchen islands, kitchen splashbacks, etc., require an Entire Slab or more. But numerous situations arise when you need just a small fraction of a slab.

Say you want to build a mini pizza table for yourself, a coffee table for your condo, need a lamp or candle base, charcuterie boards, build a mantlepiece, or, in a rather serious case, break a small portion of your worktops for kitchen/floor, etc; the list doesn't end.

You can modify your old kitchen countertops and existing low-value worktops with granite and marble offcuts to drastically raise their value.

This step will cost you far less than spending on a new stone counter. Every sensible person would like to purchase the size required just enough for them rather than paying a hefty price for the entire material.

So, a person possessing remnants can sell them to someone looking for them, given there is a facility to communicate these needs.

At work-tops, we use our platform to support customers in these situations. Fabricators wanting to get rid of their kitchen worktop offcuts near me, display them on our Half-cut page. All our remnant service is free of cost.

Sustainable Offcut Option

The Remnant Program is our Founder's initiative to create an efficient and sustainable future in the Stone and Construction Industry. Besides being our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), we also support the UK Government's mission, "Green Industry Revolution 2050".

This Stone Recycling Program, a key component of modern waste reduction, saves huge masses of potential materials from being dumped in landfills by turning somebody's waste into another's treasure. Potentially useful and rare materials are better managed and minimised. It is an alternative to conventional waste disposal that can minimise the natural stone excavation and help lower greenhouse gas emissions.
