GRANITE | Short Description
      Granite is one of the hardest and densest of all natural stone. In fact, made up of quartz, feldspar and mica, granite is one of the hardest stones next to diamond.
      It also resists staining and scratching better than any other natural stone due to its density. Granite makes a powerful impact in kitchens, entryways and bathrooms, or as an accent with other natural stone tiles.

We Use Granite to fabricate:
  • Countertops
  • Floor tile
  • Wall tile
  • Sculpture
  • Furniture
  • Dog bowls
  • Stone facings
  • Fireplaces

    MARBLE | Short Description
          Marble is softer and more prone to scratching than granite. Polished marble is very stain resistant, but still not good for kitchens due to etching. Sealing does not prevent etching.
          The dramatic veining looks spectacular on countertops and marble floors will easily complement most other design elements and themes.
          Over the years the marble will absorb stains, the patina will change and the stone will begin to reflect the essential character of your home. This is especially true of marble tile floors, which become more beautiful with age and use.

    We Use Marble to fabricate:
  • Countertops
  • Floor tile
  • Wall tile
  • Stairs
  • Sculpture
  • Furniture
  • Dog bowls
  • Stone facings
  • Fireplaces

    LIMESTONE | Short Description
          A limestone counter top is velvety smooth, like soapstone and shares a color palette similar to Travertine only with less pattern variation.
          A unique characteristic of this natural stone is the fossils and seashells often found embedded in the surface adding an organic element to the countertop.
          Some limestones are dense and hard, but most are porous and susceptible to staining in high-use areas like the kitchen; therefore... It's best to treat limestone as you would travertine and marble by using coasters, cutting boards and sealing the stone regularly.

    We Use Limestone to fabricate:
  • Countertops
  • Wall tile
  • Stone facings
  • Fireplaces

    SOAPSTONE | Short Description
          Steatite (soapstone) is relatively soft (because of the high talc content, talc being one on Mohs hardness scale), and may feel soapy when touched, hence the name.
          Soapstone has several advantages over other stones. One of them is that, although it is softer than granite or marble, it is also denser. It won't absorb stains. Lab benches are sometimes made of Soapstone. Also, it's appropriate for older homes - it's a traditional material without a glitzy modern look.

    We Use Soapstone to fabricate:
  • Countertops
  • Floor tile
  • Wall tile
  • Sculpture
  • Stone facings
  • Fireplaces

    QUARTZ - Engineered Stone | Short Description
    CaesarStone, HanStone, Cambria, Silestone
    are 93% crushed quartz and 7% polymer resin. This combination of materials produces a countertop harder than granite, that will never have to be sealed. All products come with at least a 10 year warranty.
          Engineered stone products are gaining in popularity and are sometimes preferred over granite products because engineered stone requires less maintenance and has better resistance to stains and bacterial contamination.

    We Use Quartz to fabricate:
  • Countertops
  • Sinks
  • Furniture
  • Dog bowls
  • Stone facings

    ICESTONE-GLASS | Short Description
          IceStone countertops made with recycled glass and concrete. The glass used comes from curbside recycling, post industrial usage, windows, windshields, building demolition and other sources. There are a variety of color combinations available.
          Countertops are the most common use of recycled glass surfacing, but the material can also be used anywhere stone or quartz is used; kitchens, bathroom vanities, shower and tub surrounds, wall paneling, fireplace mantles, tables, outdoor kitchens, etc.

    We Use IceStone to fabricate:
  • Countertops
  • Floor tile
  • Wall tile
  • Stone facings
  • Fireplaces

    STONE - HOW ITS MADE

    The origin of natural stone.

    The production of natural stone is part art and part science, the convergence of tradition and technology, a combination of the inspirational and the industrial.

    The information below will provide you with an understanding of the product right from its beginning. That's important because these are the materials you'll be living with and walking on for years should you choose this flooring product.

    Plus, perhaps most important, understanding the making of natural stone can help you be a smarter shopper, help you better determine natural stone countertop or flooring value and keep you within your budget.

    Natural stone is the world's oldest flooring.

    For millions of years, a combination of heat and pressure created blocks of natural stone, including granite, marble, travertine, limestone, and slate.

    As the earth's crust began to grow and erode, it pushed minerals up from its core, forming massive rock deposits, which we refer to as "quarries".

    Quarries, the incubators of natural stone.

    Quarries are found in many countries throughout the world: Italy, China, Spain, India, Canada, Mexico and the United States.
    There, people who have been quarrying stone for generations, work with precision and passion, with expert selection skills, and a devotion to their craft that's second to none.

    They are among the world's last true artisans and their pride and heritage runs as deep as the stone they quarry.
    However, science also plays a major role at the quarry.
    Recent advances in the stone industry's equipment and technology have greatly impacted the process of extracting stone from the quarry and installing it in a home.

    Today's modern tools can accomplish this with speed and efficiency.
