Learn more about stone flooring

Travertine and limestone are examples of sedimentary stone. Granite is an example of igneous stone. Slate and marble are examples of metamorphic stone. Stone flooring has long been considered the flooring material of choice for the privileged and elite. Think castles and palaces.

But that is no longer the case. Advances in technology have helped make the labor-intensive process much more affordable and that savings has been passed on to modern day consumers. Since your home is your castle, why not consider stone floors?

Stone’s path to your home begins in a quarry. Large blocks of stone are cut from the earth and transported to a processing plant. Did you know that stone is just a rock until it’s been quarried? Only after cutting is it called stone. The blocks are cut into slabs. The slabs then go to a fabricator to be cut again, shaped and polished. Keep in mind, to maintain it’s beauty routine maintenance is required to seal and/or polish natural stone.

Among the many advantages of stone is one very practical one. Natural stone flooring will virtually always increase your home’s resale value. And unlike other types of flooring (but like a good wine), it improves with age.
