What type of building stone choice is right for you?
Some factors influence your choice of material. What type of project you have, the size of the project, the thickness of the stone you need, the weight of the stone, and the stone’s surface characteristics are all important construction considerations. For example, if you are adding stone surfacing to an existing structure, you need to use lightweight stones, such as stone veneer, to ensure that you do not compromise the structure. Also, if you are using stones for walking surfaces, you want to ensure that they will not get dangerously slick when wet. Affordability is also an important consideration. Our customers often come in with a specific look in mind and are pleasantly surprised to find that we can offer them products that will give them a similar look, but at a fraction of their anticipated cost.
