Marble, Slate & Soapstone
The stately elegance and timeless beauty of marble have been prized for centuries and is still one of the most popular material choices used in residential and commercial buildings today. Often seen in white with streaks of grays, there are actually many color options to choose from. Natural marble stone is formed from superheated limestone that cools to a distinctive crystalline composition. Adaptable to almost every style, marble can be polished for a glossy sheen or honed for a matte finish. Marble is typically one of the more expensive building materials, and its porous nature makes it more susceptible to staining. Marble countertops and surfaces require periodic sealing to protect the finish. If you are looking for a surface with the beauty to endure through the ages, marble is a perfect option.
Slate Stone for Accenting Features
Slate offers stellar good looks and great durability. Unlike marble and granite, slate is easy to clean and does not have a tendency to harbor bacteria and stands up very well to heat. We don’t recommend a slate application for countertops; just fireplace surrounds/hearth or thresholds for doorways..
