Natural Stone

Natural stone with its high durability and low maintenance has been used as building material for many centuries. It is still use today in modern construction, adding an elegant touch to both interior and exterior projects without compromising its performance.

This document will focus on the different types of natural stone that are available through our various distribution centers, i.e. granite, limestone, marble, quartzite, sandstone, slate and travertine.

The right stone for the right project

Each project has specific questions that should be answered to ensure that the right stone is used. Is it an exterior or interior project? Are the stones to be installed on vertical or horizontal surfaces? Will the stones be exposed to freeze/thaw cycles? Will the stones be exposed to wet conditions? Is the installation in a high or low traffic area?
