Find Your Perfect Stone.
At Global Marble & Granite, we believe there is a stone perfect for you and your home. This is where we come in: helping you to determine what that stone is. Of course, you may already know the type of stone you want; the next step is picking the slab that will be used for your specific application.
Let Global Help You Select the Perfect Stone.
You may be undecided on what variety of stone is best suited for your project, but don’t worry. That’s common. Based upon what you are looking for, we will provide you with recommendations. Ultimately, the choice of whether to use marble or granite or slate or limestone or Caesarstone is up to you. Because there are so many options, it can be confusing to know exactly what the difference is with each one. That’s why as part of our process, we work closely with you to identify your needs and how exactly you will be using natural stone in your home. We are there every step of the way to ensure you will be happy with your stone, not only when it’s installed, but 10, 20 and 30 years from now.
NATURAL STONE COLLECTION
First, let’s start with the basics. Natural stone can be broken down into one of two general categories: siliceous or calcareous stone. Siliceous stone (granite, slate, sandstone, quartzite, brownstone) is characterized by its durability and ease of care and maintenance. It is composed of silica or quartz-like materials. Calcareous stone (marble, travertine, limestone, onyx) is sensitive to acidic cleaning products and requires a different care and maintenance than its counterpart. It is composed of primarily calcium carbonate. The specific types of natural stone we offer include the following:
MAN-MADE STONE COLLECTION
Solid surface or man made surfaces differ considerably from natural stone as these materials do not have the same variations and unique markings that quarried materials will exhibit. Solid surface is available in hundreds of colors and visual textures, ranging from solid colors to sparkling marble or granite effects inspired by nature. Some manufacturers also offer custom colors matched to a color sample supplied by you. Work with your Global designer to determine what surface material best fits your needs, budget and design.
