ABOUT STONE FLOORING
Stone Flooring may be used indoors or outdoors. Indoors, it is mainly used for bathrooms. Outside, it may be used for paving, paths, and steps. The main types of stone are: Limestone, Sandstone, Granite, and Slate. Stones are available in a wide range of colors, and may have rough-hewn or smooth finish.
Stone flooring is available in accurately cut square tiles, from 12" to 24" square. It is also available in irregular shapes to provide a rustic effect. Because stone is a porous material, indoor stone floors will usually need to be sealed immediately after installation, with the sealant being re-applied every twelve months. This will avoid marking and staining. Marble floors will require more frequent re-application of sealant.
