With a showroom of over 4,000 natural stone slabs, we invite homeowners to visit and find the perfect style to create a truly unique masterpiece in their own home.
An igneous rock, granite is formed by the crystallization of molten lava. The color variation in granite, either with small flecks of color or veins of color similar to marble, are created by varying minerals within the stone.
Granite is a dense, hard stone and can be highly polished or finished in a variety of other ways. Granite is also available in an impressive variety of colors.
Marble has both scientific and commercial definitions. Scientific marble is limestone with altered crystalline structure bringing out color and veining through metamorphosis from intense pressures and high temperatures within the earth.
Commercially, any stone capable of taking a polish (with the exception of granite) is known as marble.
Terrazzo *Green Product
Terrazzo is composed of up to 75 percent recycled material and requires less processing of new raw materials, reducing the amount of post-industrial and post-consumer waste. For these reasons, terrazzo is considered a “green” construction material.
Its flexibility in creating a custom match for each project makes it a very popular material. You get to hand select your base color as well as aggregates from a variety of marble, glass, mother of pearl, or recycled material. Then, each slab is custom poured for your project.
Terrazzo is a great option for flooring (under which you can put a heat mat) and countertops. In addition, rustic terrazzo is a slip-resistent surface that is beautiful in outdoor areas such as pools and patios.
A sedimentary stone, limestone is layered and formed from the skeletons and shells of sea creatures that lived in the sea millions of years ago.
While much domestic limestone is gray to buff in color, imported limestone is available in colors ranging from light beige to dark brown, red and black.
Limestone’s popularity stems somewhat from being readily available and easy to work with.
Formed in pools by the slow precipitation of hot, mineral-rich spring water; travertine marble is a variety of limestone.
Although classic travertine is recognizable by its homogenous coloring of ecru to dark colors, dark reds can be found and are created through dark brown veining.
With its deep, uniform colors from dark to light green, mottled purple, black, gray, and dark red, slate’s smooth, distinct cleft pattern is the most distinctive characteristic of slate. Its fine-grained, metamorphic stone is derived from sedimentary rock shale.
Quartz slabs are manufactured by grinding up quartz mineral into small chips that are the combined with a strengthening resin. Though there is natural stone content, quartz slabs are considered manmade, because of the manufacturing process and the percentage of natural stone present.
Quartz is one of the lowest maintenance options for a countertop, and it can mimic the look of granite, marble, terrazzo, or have a unique look of its own.
