Q. What colours are available for my splashback?
A. We can produce any colour you wish. Our free home visit enables you to see our standard colour range under glass and hundreds of colour swatches. It is important for you to see the colour in the lighting of your own kitchen or bathroom as different degrees of light have a big impact on the colour. We can also match to RAL, Pantone, BS, NCS and many many other colour ranges.
Q. Will my splashback be affected by heat, water or steam?
A. Not at all. At UK Splashbacks, all our splashbacks are toughened using the very latest in glass toughening technology, making our splashbacks heat resistant up to 400°C, scratch resistant and chip resistant. Our 10 year guarantee covers your splashback against colour fading or discolouration.
Q. What condition should the wall or area be in for my splashback to be fitted to?
A. We can fit your new splashback to almost any surface. However, our representative will assess the surface thoroughly during your free home visit.
Q. What maintenance will my new splashback require?
A. Very little. This is just one of the many reasons why coloured glass splashbacks are the preferred choice for wall covering in modern kitchens and bathrooms. Just wiping down with every day glass cleaner and a soft cloth is enough to keep your splashback looking clean, bright and just like the day it was installed.
Q. Is my splashback covered by any guarantees?
A. Yes. We provide a 10 year guarantee with all our splashbacks, which covers against the colour fading, flaking or chipping. The colour of your splashback will look exactly the same 10 years down the line (and longer) as it did on the day we fitted it. A 12 month guarantee is provided on the installation.
Q. How much will my new splashback cost?
A. It is impossible to give you an accurate price without actually seeing the area as many different elements have an impact on the possibilities for glass splashbacks. These in turn all have an impact on the price. Colour options, glass options, size, shape, amounts of cut-outs, type of cut-outs, the list goes on. Many companies ask you to send in dimensions and measurements so they can price, but they are pricing blind and the figures they give are very unlikely to be accurate in the slightest. This is why we have a free home visit service, in order to give you a firm, accurate price based on assessment of facts. It also means you can see and hold the product in a large variety of colours, we can answer your questions fully and offer advice on colour schemes and design.
