Information about Natural Stone Pavers
4x4, 8x8, 8x16, 16x16, 16x24, 24x24, or cut to size., cut to size and we can make other sizes bigger or small per your request.
1¼ thickness for sand setting just like a regular concrete or brick pavers. Pavers also can be masonry set over concrete.
Thin Stone Veneer 1/2 or 5/8 thickness. This thickness is for vertical or flat masonry. Anywhere that you could use a thin brick or a cultured stone our Thin Stone Veneer is good for exterior cladding on walls or decorative stone on a building or a house. With remodeling a lot of this Thin Stone Veneer is for over existing concrete so that you just go over the surface with the new Natural Stone not having to tear up the old slab to sand set, saving time and money. But mainly our Natural Stone Thin Veneer is used for interior floors and walls.
Custom order other thickness up to 4 inches Copings, Treads, and Slabs. Bullnose coping can be put on all sizes according to your request. For example we can bullnose one side of an 8x8 on two, three or all sides. On 8x16 bullnose coping on the 8 inch side or the 16 inch side or both and vise versa for all the other sizes. Treads can be made according to the availability of the sizes of the treads. We can also produce custom coping such as radius pieces and large pieces for tables or countertops.
Since Natural Stone Pavers come in so many sizes and large formats there are many different patterns French, Ashlar, Herringbone, Running Bond, and Versailles just to name a few plus many more. Types of Stones
Granite is igneous rock and is the hardest stone. The origin of the word granite is derived from the Latin, meaning "grian". Granite is natural rock, comprised of 3 minerals called mica, feldspar and quartz. It is formed in a grainy manner by the crystallization of magma within the crust of the earth. Granite is famous for its Strength and Hardness. Building materials made from granite have a reputation for being virtually indestructible. That is why granite pavers can provide a long-term solution for anyone who wants their pavement to last for many decades. Granite is resistant to the long-term effects of weathering; aging and can withstand cold environments.
LimeStone Pavers/ Marble Pavers:
Limestone is one of the hardest sedimentary stones and is formed at the bottom of natural water bodies. Limestone is layers upon layers of hard sediment, containing traces of fossils from shellfish and other marine animals. Limestone pavers are very reliable and long-lasting building materials. It is a quarried stone, so it is always available and can be cut to size and customized to ones special needs. Sealing your Limestone pavers is highly advised. To protect and pro-long the life of your Limestone pavers, it is necessary to carry out regular maintenance procedures.
Marble is a metamorphic rock resulting from regional or rarely contact metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks, either limestone or dolostone, or metamorphism of older marble. This metamorphic process causes a complete recrystallization of the original rock into an interlocking mosaic of calcite, aragonite and/or dolomite crystals. The temperatures and pressures necessary to form marble usually destroy any fossils and sedimentary textures present in the original rock.Pure white marble is the result of metamorphism of very pure limestones. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone. Green coloration is often due to serpentine resulting from originally high magnesium limestone or dolostone with silica impurities. These various impurities have been mobilized and recrystallized by the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism.

Travertine is a type of "morphed" limestone, where the lime content has been deposited by water. Travertine is about 50 million years old. Travertine Pavers are ideal for use around the pool and patio areas, for they will stay cool on your feet and are freeze-thaw compatible. Travertine pavers have a non-slip surface finish, for they have a high co-efficient of friction. This means that Travertine Pavers will provide a safe walking and play surface area for the whole family. Travertine pavers can withstand weathering and erosion without deteriorating. It is known that Travertine material improves with age. Colors will not fade over time. Travertine pavers will maintain their natural color for decades. Another great benefit is that Travertine pavers require little to no maintenance or cleaning. They are simply a natural hardwearing stone. Travertine is a versatile, durable and reliable material. If you take Rome as an example, the Coliseum and many other buildings that are 1000'sof years old, are still standing today. Travertine pavers are used widely in the landscaping industry. It can create unique arrangements for outdoor flooring, such as balconies, patios, around the pool and walkways. Travertine is ideal for use as stepping-stones in the garden, borders and edging around flowerbeds, pool coping and even for driveways. Travertine is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications, for the surface never gets hot; this is due to the lack of metal content in the stone. Travertine is said to be non-slip and twice the strength of concrete.
