How much variation can I expect from the sample of stone shown?
Each stone is unique, and some types of stone display more variation
between the pieces than others. Granites show little variation in color,
but may have differing patterns and grain density. Slates tend to show a
wide variation in color, even within the same pallet of stone.
For maintenance-free elegance and durability, granite is unmatched. Its
incredible strength and density makes granite the perfect choice for
massive structural work – walls, monuments and supports. Though it is
the hardest of structural stones, the amazing variety of mineral-rich
colors and natural patterns gives it ornamental value as well. Granite products are ideal for flooring, countertops, vanities and decorative exterior applications.
Why are most natural stones imported?
Sources of natural stone with desirable qualities are found all over the world, in many different locations. Some sources are better than others due to the stones' appearance, hardness, and other qualities. Therefore, stone may be quarried in China, India, Africa, South America, and some does come from within United States borders.
Cost of processing is also a factor. Since natural stone has been used as a building material for thousands of years in many locations overseas, those areas have a long-established system for quarrying and processing these stones which is efficient and economical.
Care and Maintenance
What care and maintenance of the stone products are recommended?
Stone surfaces are very easy to maintain. Clean stone floors with warm water and
a mild liquid soap. Never use acid cleansers or abrasive chemicals on stone. Natural
stone should be sealed after installation and every one to two years thereafter,
depending on its application.
What is an impregnator sealer? How does it help stone?
Impregnator sealer consists of microscopic balls of silicone that attach themselves
to crevices inside the stone. These balls become a permanent part of the stone,
and act as a waterproof shield.
How often should a sealer be applied?
Two or three coatings are recommended for the first application. Depending on the
application of the stone and its usage, sealer should be applied every one to two
Where in my home can I use natural stone?
Natural Stone can be used on nearly every surface both inside and outside the home,
including floors, kitchen countertops,
vanity tops, bathrooms, patios, walkways, fireplaces, facades, wall cladding, and
Why is granite preferred for kitchen/bar countertops?
Countertops in kitchens and bar areas
are often exposed to acidic substances such as lemon, vinegar, alcohol, and tomato
sauce. Knives, dishes, pots and pans, and other implements may cause scratching
of lesser materials. Granite
is the hardest and densest of all natural stones – the feldspar content keeps it
water resistant, and the silicates it contains won't react with acid. These properties
help Granite resist staining and retain its fine luster over a longer period of
time than ceramic tiles or other stones.
Although Marble is commonly requested for countertops in bars and kitchens, marble's
high carbonate content makes it vulnerable to acidic substances.
