STONE FAQ

 

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 garden landscaping.

     

Where do Natural stones come from? 

  • Natural stones are quarried directly from the earth's crust, and every piece is unique. The only processing they need is shaping into various forms, sizes and finishes.

Why are some stones more expensive than others?

  • Stones that are harder and denser are more difficult and expensive to quarry and process. Quarrying methods vary as well; stones may be quarried below ground, which is more expensive than above ground. Also, since natural stone is quarried all over the world, long distance shipping factors into the price.

What is Quartz stone? 

  • Quartz is a marriage of a natural mineral and modern technology. The natural mineral quartz is, by itself, not much more than a sandy powder. Bonded together with manmade polymers, it becomes a highly durable countertop selection with the sparkling beauty of a natural looking stone and the wherewithal to hold up in the kitchen. As a manmade product, it can also be produced in a variety of colors to meet the demand for the most popular looks – it is even available in options that look like granite and marble. Quartz is available in pure white and other solid colors giving projects a more monochromatic and minimalistic designed for contemporary designed homes. Quartz is non-porous, does not require sealing, and is also heat resistant, chemical resistant, and fends off etches and scratches

Which stones require a sealant and how often? 

  • All natural stone have natural pores meaning that over time they will be subject to absorbing certain materials such as oil, wine, food etc. Sealing natural stones once a year will help prevent this from happening no matter which stone you choose to put in your home. There are many types of sealers available that will protect your stone from 1 year up to a lifetime. Man made stones such as quartz do not require a sealer since they do not have any natural pores.

TILE FAQ

Can I specify that there be no grout joints in my tile installation?

  • Creating an installation without visible grout joints is difficult, but if the surface of the floor is straight and the tiles are perfectly cut, very little grout should be seen. A professional, experienced installer should be chosen to create this look.

What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile?

  • Porcelain tile is superior to ceramic therefore making it slightly more expensive. Porcelain tiles are more dense than ceramic tile which creates a harder material. While ceramic is also not a bad choice for your home, the durability of ceramic tile is much less than a porcelain tile. The manufacturing process of porcelain as opposed to ceramic is more complex.
