Natural stone facts everyone should know



With so many different types of natural stone and stone suppliers to choose from, homeowners can easily feel overwhelmed. It is this overwhelming feeling that often leads to a rushed decision. Fortunately, instead of settling for an adequate option, you can find the very best stone for your home by keeping these points in mind:
  • Granite is ranked as the easiest to clean of all natural stones. This means less work for you and more time enjoying your worktops!
  • Natural stone products are often cheaper than man made alternatives.
  • Granite and marble are just as easy to clean as engineered stone but they can offer other advantages.
  • When cleaning natural stone, all you need is a soft cloth, warm water and a mild cleaning solution. Beyond this, maintenance is minimal.
  • Some have said that granite work surfaces release radon gas into the air. However, according to extensive studies, any emissions are not a health risk whatsoever.
  • There are a large number of natural stones that do not need to be sealed. Despite this, many homeowners choose to seal their worktops for added peace of mind.
  • Stone is produced in nature and, unlike manufactured stone, this ensures that each slab is truly unique. There are variations in colour, vein patterns and other characteristics.
