- These beautiful naturally occurring stones are minimally processed and there is very little environmental impact in stone fabrication, because fabricators use specially designed wet blades to greatly reduce the amount of silica/stone dust released into the air.
- Natural stone not only lasts for years but also rewards you with its mesmerizing imperfections if maintained in a proper manner. For that reason only environmental friendly cleaners are suggested to clean the surfaces.
- Wide range of simple finishes can be applied to natural stone to enhance its performance, extend its life, making it mildly weather resistant and minimizes wear and tear, and slip resistant.
As it is highly durable it requires minimal maintenance. Power washing, the only real maintenance that may be required from time to time to clean the stone to retain its original look.
What are your recycle options
Yes, the recycled form of natural stone emerges as stone again and is re-purposed, which lengthens its lifespan, while preserving energy, water, and other essential resources that are usually utilized while producing new stone. Salvaging and recycling a stone is viable and a sustainable way to ensure that material will be utilized to its fullest, ultimately reducing or avoiding impacts to ecosystems and resource supplies.
