Architects, developers, and construction workers often ask why they should build with natural stone and the list is endless, but we are going to highlight the most important reasons that you should be using natural stone in your next project.

Natural stone is environmentally compatible

Natural stone is one of the few materials that contain no pollutants and does not release substances during fires that could damage your health. This material also doesn’t require chemical substances such as protective coatings before it can be used.

Natural stone is an individual

After natural stone is quarried from large blocks, it is then cut into desired sizes by fabricators based on the requirements of the project. Natural stone can also be cut into more shapes than just squares and rectangles. The different varieties of stones can allow you to highlight the uniqueness of your project.

Natural stone ages well

There are some building materials that don’t take well to time and the elements, but not natural stone. The life of natural stone is extremely long and with the right planning, natural stone buildings have been known to survive for thousands of years.

Natural stone is attractively priced

Natural stone has been proven to be no more expensive than synthetic building materials. The high investment costs of natural stone are offset by the low-maintenance costs.

Natural stone is durable

Natural stone is one of the most durable materials on the market. This allows your family to use the kitchen, bathroom or any other areas in your home without concern of damaging your stones.  Even after years of use, most natural stones show hardly any signs of wear and tear.

Natural stone offers easy care and maintenance

There is a wide range of finishes that can be applied to natural stone to extend it’s life, resist wear and tear, and make stone slip-resistant. Most natural stones only need to be washed with mild soap and water. If you are skeptical about using soap, there are cleaners that are specifically made for natural stone that are affordable.
