Homeowners, builders, and design professionals choose natural stone for its inherently unique properties. As a natural product, each individual piece is distinct and has the potential for unique patterns, colors and textures. This ensures that each slab is one-of-a-kind, and makes every project something special.
Custom selections can be made from any of our preferred vendors.
Popular natural stone choices include:
Granite is a very hard natural stone that is composed of feldspar, quartz, mica and other minerals. This tried-and-true selection is extremely popular for good reason: it is beautiful, durable, and works well in high-traffic areas such as kitchen countertops, bars, and bathrooms. Granite is an exceptionally hard surface, making it resistant to scratching, chipping, and other signs of daily wear. Another reason to love granite? It emerges from the ground in just about every color and pattern imaginable. That means there is a granite slab out there to match your unique taste.
This natural stone is a metamorphic quartz material that is very dense, making it a good option for most countertop projects. Its characteristic marble-like patterns give it a very dramatic look that is the perfect showpiece for an island, fireplace surround or wall feature. Regular yearly sealing is recommended for quartzite installations.
Marble is a natural stone that is composed of calcite, dolomite and serpentine. Marble is synonymous with elegance and sophistication, making it an exceptional choice for the most style-conscious applications. This material can be used for any countertop application, but is most commonly found in bathrooms where it is easier to care for than more high traffic areas such as kitchens. Marble tolerates moisture extraordinarily well, which is another reason why it is such a popular choice for tub surrounds, showers, and bars.
Soapstone is a soft material made of talc that is often used in more rustic décor schemes. It is ideal for use as cladding, hearths, and tabletops, and is commonly found in laboratories due to its neutral, chemical resistant composition. It can also be used in kitchen or bathroom applications, but will show wear with use. Soapstone is usually maintained by treating it with mineral oil. Light scratches can be buffed gently with 0000 steel wool or sandpaper.
If you're interested in a unique choice, travertine, limestone, or serpentine might be just the ticket for a distinct, rustic look. These options are more high maintenance and not as durable as granite, but they are suitable for a number of applications, including: cladding, fireplace surrounds, tables, flooring, and select bathroom projects.
