Natural Stone refers to a number of products quarried from the earth, used over many thousands of years as building materials and decorative enhancements. These products include Granite, Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Slate, Quartzite, Sandstone, Adoquin, Onyx, and others.
A majority of natural stone comes from Italy, Spain, Turkey, United States, Mexico, China, Taiwan, India, Greece, Canada, France, and Brazil. The minerals in stone came from the same liquid and gas minerals that formed the earth. Natural stone is sturdy, durable and provides good traction. It’s not slippery like ceramic and other materials, which makes it a safe option for kids and pets, especially in the kitchen.
Stones are eventually quarried by rocks, with rocks being the main source for a variety of stones. Characteristics of rocks change due to changes in the properties of rocks, as well as strength, durability, and other properties.
NATURAL STONE WALL CLADDING
Natural stone cladding is the use of a thin layer of stone as a cladding for the outside of a structure. It is also sometimes used on internal surfaces. In India, granite, sandstone and slate are the most common choices for stone wall cladding. Marble is another option for areas that require a sophisticated finish. These natural stones come in a range of colors and sizes, including smaller slabs or rounded stones for a more rustic look for the exterior walls.
As the stone contains natural materials like silicate and calcium, they are ideal for effective protection against extreme weather conditions. With stone cladding in both your interior as well as the exterior of your house, achieving protection against extreme heat, rain calamities, and frost damages becomes possible.
Born of nature, each piece of stone has a definite character and grain. This hard and cool material is ideal for homes in warmer climates. A natural stone’s organic surface resists dust and allergenic organisms, making it safe and durable. From rough to smooth, porous to dense, choices in stone flooring abound. Granite, marble, limestone and travertine are some of the commonly used natural stones for flooring. They are strong, durable and require minimum maintenance.
