How are natural stone products better than concrete products?

Natural Stones are naturally impressive. It is a unique paving material which offers a variety of colors and textures for different applications. It is inexpensive. It is an everlasting material which no concrete paving stone product can claim. You can see buildings which are 5000 years or older all built with natural stones. Precast concrete pavers are man-made material cast in regular molds producing tons of products which are totally identical and boring.

Will these stones withstand our extreme climate?

All of the natural stone products that we sell are high grade stones which already have a track record of withstanding our extreme climates. Weathering of all stones is a natural process and all stone products undergo weather-out depending upon the climate, wear & tear, installation and natural factors. Please ask for technical data to assess the suitability of any particular stone for your project.

Do you stock the complete selection of products in all colors?

We do stock a wide selection of products in most of the stones/colors. However some products are not readily available in some of the stones due to technical or commercial infeasibility. Custom products, sizes and finishes can be made in any stone or color as per your architectural or landscape designs. Please contact us for more details.

Is stone hard to work with?

No, not really. Mostly all stone products come pre-cut, in a variety of sizes. You may also order custom dimensions to avoid cutting. Often it's the weight of stone that makes it hard to work with. You are advised to use proper equipment & adequate manpower for installation. For best results - it is a good idea to hire a professional landscaping contractor. We also have a do-it-yourself product line, which you may like to consider.

What is your quality control & dimensional tolerance of the products?

Our entire manufacturing process is monitored at each and every stage from quarrying of raw natural stone blocks to final finished pieces, packing & shipping. Our products exceed the approved international dimensional consistency parameters. Dimensional tolerances vary from product to product. Please send us your concerns specifically for the product (or project) so that it can be addressed precisely.

Is there any variation in the product and sample?

Stone is a natural material and variation in texture and color is its natural characteristic. Each and every piece is unique in color and texture. Some stones are more variegated (or varied) than others. This is the characteristic that makes stone so desirable for landscape & building projects. Samples are only indicative of color and texture.

Do I need to seal natural stones?

Normally stone used in landscape design is left to age naturally. It is not mandatory to seal the stones. If you like the wet look then you may want to use the appropriate sealer. It is a matter of personal choice.
