Things to Consider
*Personal Preference- Stone selection is up to you. We specialize in custom fabrication of your stone selection.
*Color- There are over 500 different colors of natural stone and engineered stone to choose from.
*Movement- Within certain stones there are veins that flow horizontally, vertically, and sometimes both and some that create swirl patterns. This is known as movement.
*Consistency- Within many natural stones you will see the same pattern throughout the material.
*Lighting- In some natural stones there are quartz crystals that illuminate/reflect beautiful colors when the right lighting is used.
*Availability- Do we have your stone selection? If not, does one of our supply warehouses have it?
*Size- How much material will you need is based on total square footage?
