Natural Stone is a product formed by nature and is NOT artificial or manmade.
Natural Stones are quarried out of mountains or underground from all over the world and then cut into various-sized blocks. The blocks are transported to cutting and finishing plants, where they are cut into different standardized sizes and shapes.
Each stone's face is then polished, honed, flamed, brushed, hammered, etc, based on the customer’s specifications. The only processing each block need is shaping into various forms, sizes and finishes.
More than just rocks, Natural Stone is hand selected from the best, most consistent sources for durability and beauty. No two pieces of natural stone are alike!
Some may have extreme variation in color and veining from slab to slab, a common characteristic in many types of stone and part of the inherent beauty of using a natural product in your home or project.
Not only is Natural Stone prized for its distinctive beauty and the sense of peaceful tranquility it creates, it also offers many practical benefits.
"Natural Stone products are more durable than many artificial products,
often lasting for decades with very little maintenance..."
With Natural Stone there are no worries about exposure to harmful chemicals in your home or releasing damaging substances into the environment during production or disposal.
Natural Stone is non-toxic. No chemicals go into its quarrying. It is PURE, and therefore void of any foreign substance that might be harmful to the earth or to your health. Using Natural Stone for your projects shows that you care about the environment and consciously strive to protect it.
Unlike manmade materials that give off deadly fumes during the unfortunate event of a house fire, Natural Stone cannot burn. In fact, granite counter-tops are often reclaimed and re-used during the reconstruction of fire damaged homes.
Natural Stone can be used on nearly every surface, both inside and outside the home, including floors, kitchen counter-tops, vanity tops, bathrooms, patios, walkways, fireplaces, facades, wall cladding, and garden landscaping. Whether you're building a new house or remodeling, Natural Stone offers you unparalleled beauty, permanence, and uniqueness – and adds TRUE VALUE to your home.
We work directly with AFI - Antica Fabbrica Italiana, a distribution company that is part of the Zorzi Group, to provide the best Natural Stone products.
