    Am going to help a friend take out a Wellmann Kitchen which has what has been described as a Red Silestone worktop.

    The work top covers an L shaped layout of units and the person he bought it from thinks its glued together.

    Has any one any experience of stone/composite worktops and the way they are joined who could advise me how to separate it.

    I am going to assist at 8am on Monday so am unable to get any advice from the manufacturer.

    Silestone is more than 90% quartz and one way the bond it is to butt the pieces and use a colour-matched epoxy resin adhesive in a similar way to how granite worktops are jointed. Makes me wonder if you'll need a big pry bar and a sledge hammer!
