Why Design With Natural Stone?
Natural stone is strong and stable to live with. It exudes a rich, organic, beautiful surface and has a confident, timeless “presence” in any room.
If you rub your hand across any natural stone product, you can feel the eons of time it took to produce this natural wonder of Mother Earth.
From ancient monuments like the pyramids in Egypt and the majestic Greek and Roman temples, to the great civilizations of India and China, natural stone has been an important part of architecture throughout history. It is the world’s oldest building material — imagine its beauty and elegance in your new home. Unlike synthetic floor coverings and counter surfaces, stone is unique, highly durable and has a timeless quality which never goes out of style.
Dollar for dollar, stone may be the best investment you can make in your home. Design versatility, ever-lasting beauty, combined with eternal durability, stone creates a product of lasting value.
Natural stone, when properly chosen and installed, is a material of lasting beauty that actually appreciates in value. It is an investment that lasts a lifetime.
Durability of Stone
Some grades of stone are highly durable. Ceramic/porcelain tile is the most durable flooring and facing material available. It is color permanent, abrasion resistant, and can not be cut, torn, gouged, or punctured.
Caring for Stone
Stone and tile are easy to clean with water and soap. There is no special need for expensive cleaning products or maintenance. Imagine not having the expense of cleaning your carpets several times a year. All installed stone is sealed.
Designing with Stone
When choosing to design with stone and tile, you are opened up to an infinite selection of sizes, shapes, colors, patterns and textures. You have the capability of exceeding the design requirements of virtually every facet within your remodeling project.
Beauty of Stone
Stone will enhance any environment, from a guest bath, to your kitchen countertops, an elegant foyer, and certainly your master bath. When properly selected, stone can provide a surface that is as functional as it is beautiful.
