Natural stone offers such immense appearance variety; you’ll never have to worry about matching your decor. Many types of stone are available, including marble, travertine, soapstone and many more. These all have various veining, textures, and hues that make them a designer’s dream come true. No two are ever exactly alike, either, giving you a truly personalized look, even if you choose the same material throughout your home.
This material has one of the lengthiest lifespans of any material on the flooring market. As an element naturally found outdoors, you’ll find it incredibly durable. It stands up to heavy foot traffic, accidents, spills, stains, and more, and still manages to give you up to 100 years with the right care and maintenance. Some stone must be treated or sealed, which can mean retreatments and upgraded sealant, but it’s far cheaper than replacing your entire floor covering. So, in the long run, it’s even a cheaper option.
Only professional flooring installers should undertake the installation of natural stone. With such a diversity of materials and needs, there will be special tools necessary, as well as a great deal of actual expertise that is necessary. Your flooring associate can fill you in on all the details.
