I have practical and attractive work area, and all the outside mess is nicely stored away in convenient new comparments. Iwill have to buy some more crockery and pans to fill them. Thanks for all of your help with the design and smooth installation.

John Millar from Surface Detail came highly recommended. At the introductory planning meeting, John was helpful and patient. He provided suggestions and drawings until we had made our final decisions. The installation itself was done with the minimum possible disruption. Russ The fitter got on with the job, keeping dust levels down and clearing up at the end of each day. He put in a great deal of hard and painstaking work to ensure the perfect fit and finish, and this is a room where there are no straight walls. The result? A Concrete Worktop and splash back + new gloss doors and handles, I am absolutely delighted with my new kitchen and with how the work was carried out. Russ's work has already been admired by friends and family. We are very happy to recommend Surface Detail to others without reservation and would not hesitate to commission further work from him in the future should the need arise.

I was a bit nervous having sales people in my home after some bad experiences with some double glazing companies, I need not have worried, there was no pressure selling, in fact the complete opposite. I felt you were there to help me, rather than sell to me. My Kitchen makeover is simply great! If ever I move, or need more work, i will be sure to use you again.

Dear John, What a refreshing change to deal with a company that has straight forward genuine prices without all of the gimmicks that other companies seem to employ. From the moment that John came to see me, until the completed job it has been a pleasure to do business with you, I would recommend you without hesitation (in fact I already have given you details to one of my neighbours) The Kitchen and Concrete Work Surfaces look fantastic keep up the good work!!!!
Mrs J Davis

To Surface Detail
We first contacted Surface Detail seeking a quotation to supply and install our Kitchen Doors, a Steel Worktop and additional carcasses. We were determined to seek out an supplier and installer at the same time as some steel worktop suppliers cannot do the whole thing. Within a few days of the initial contact we met John the area representative who quickly assessed our requirements and drew up schematic plans offering clear positive advice as he progressed. When the diagrams were complete to our satisfaction a price was calculated . On the placement of our order the installation was carried out to fit in with our schedule both efficiently and to a very high standard. Nothing was too much trouble and we are delighted with the results. We would strongly recommend Surface Detail both for their professionalism and quality of work.

Tadelakt is a traditional coating of Moroccan origin, a traditional coating of the Hammams. Based on a lime extracted from deposits located in the Maghreb, this natural material was purified, and remixed with carefully selected limestone's and aggregates.These ingredients, all natural, by interacting on each other create a reaction that becomes very hard in finish with extraordinary aesthetic and technical qualities.

Each Moroccan craftsman has his own secret receipt, the result obtained is an impermeable and moired coating of approximately 3 mm thickness. This technique of stucco was practiced for a long time in Morocco, particularly in Marrakech, for external or interior decoration.

Application Techniques

Our Tadelakt has been widely utilized in numerous prestige public and private projects. Our team of consummate professionals whose work is truly unparalleled will complete and fully execute an agreed design. In other words, our projects are designed, built, and impeccably finished to our exacting standards, ready to enjoy.

Image Floors can be done in Tadelakt Stone, but remain somewhat fragile too, for instance, small stones in the sole of a shoe which will scratch the finish. Therefore we only advise to using bare feet or on soft shoes where walking is done.

Image For Wet Rooms Tadelakt needs to be applied to a waterproof substrate, which we can install or advise on. We recommend the use of a cementatious board system such as Wedi Board. Onto this we are able to apply our plasters.

Tadelakt is adapted for a wide range of dry or wet applications, indoor and outdoor. It creates a waterproof surface without seams, that can be applied to most existing substrates.

For a More flat industrial/engineered design, High Tech or contemporary finishes, you may prefer to visit our Microtop Concrete (link) or Microtop Metal (link) then Microtop Concrete is the choice, this product is more likely to remain the same finish it started with and far less likely to patina or hair line crack, also Microtop Concrete would be the best hard wearing option for kitchen worktops.


Vertical Treatments & walls have a feeling of substance, of protection. Walls are also a great place to explore form. A wall doesn't have to be flat or straight, but can curve and undulate. It can be textured to be rough as stone or smooth as glass.
