    Removing hob and replace with cooker

    Carpenters

    Hi I want to replace a hob and put a free standing range cooker there but the quartz top needs cutting each side of the hob to allow the cooker to fit.
    I’ve had 3 trades men say oh sorry I can’t cut the quartz? I am trying without any luck to find why this is such a problem? Any advice greatly appreciated xxx

    "Cutting a quartz work top in place would be very difficult to do. It would be very easy to break or damage it in the process. I would advice informing any potential trades person coming to look it that you are aware of the possible problems and would not hold them responsible if in the event it did get damaged or broken.
    Hope this helps"

    "if the countertop is made of quartz, you need a special machine, and it cannot be cut in position."

    "It takes longer to cut a mounting hole in quartz than in a wooden worktop and appropriate skills are required."
