Frequently asked questions about Splashbacks

Q: How much do painted glass splashbacks cost?

A: Our splashbacks are priced per square metre. However, there are additional costs for cut-outs and other glass processing services. Use of our supply, measure and fit service will also incur extra charges.

Q: How do I obtain a quotation for glass splashbacks?

Please contact us directly by telephone on 01932 344415 or fill in the enquiry form here. You can also pop into see us at our showroom in Woking, Surrey to discuss your requirements in detail.

Q: Can I obtain samples of glass splashbacks?

Yes, although we do like to agree a job (in principle) first. Once we have provided you with a quote and you’re happy with it, we are happy to send samples through the post.

Q: What colours can you paint glass splashbacks?

Our splashbacks come in a range of colours and you can choose from RAL, Dulux or Farrow and Ball. Simply let us know the RAL code, Dulux or F&B colour and we’ll happily match it. Whatever colour you have in your mind’s eye, we’re confident that we’ll be able to magic it up for you!

Q: What shapes are available?

Our glass splashbacks can be cut into practically any shape or size (within reason!), although they will usually be either rectangular or t-shaped. They can include centre cut outs and corner cut outs and we can also incorporate socket or light-switch cut outs into your splashbacks.

Q: Are glass splashbacks easy to care for?

Glass splashbacks are very easy to care for and simply require cleaning with a streak-free glass cleaner and a lint free cloth. It’s best to avoid using harsh or abrasive cleaners when cleaning the glass.

Q: Do you measure and fit glass splashbacks?

Because we know that not everyone is a DIY expert, we provide a measure, supply and fit service whereby one of our experienced fitters will come to your home to install your new glass splashbacks to the highest possible standard.

Q: Can I fit glass splashbacks myself?

Yes you can, and fitting a single glass splashback is easy. However, if multiple glass splashbacks need to be measured to fit together, you may run into difficulties. Unless you are competent in DIY, it makes sense to use our supply, measure and fit service.

Q: Does the wall need to be in good condition?

In order to install glass splashbacks effectively, the wall should be free of bows, twists or raised areas that are over 2-3mm. Adhesive can be used to raise uneven areas that are less than 2-3mm deep. It’s also a good idea to sand down any sharp areas.

Q: Are painted glass splashbacks heat resistant?

Yes. Because we know that many of our splashbacks are installed behind hobs, they come with a heat resistant coating that won’t crack even under intense heat.
