More and more people make stone their unique, unconditional, choice. Why? What advantages does stone have over other surface and decoration materials?
A CREATIVE NATURAL RESOURCE
Known for its incomparable beauty, stone has decorated palaces, churches and wealthy homes. One look at these buildings is enough to notice that their stones have lost nothing of their charm and glamour. In this day and age, its countless shades and finishes interact with all decorative styles, from rustic to uncluttered Zen. The development of technologies producing ultra-fine results of 1 cm and standard paving stone dimensions up to 80×45 cm, multiplies the creativity of stone, in building and home improvements.
AN ORIGINAL AND UNIQUE AESTHETIC
The immense natural variety of geological families, the wealth of veins, means that no stone is identical to another. Shapes, colours and patterns guarantee that your floors, walls, furniture and claddings will be absolutely unique. Your love of beauty always finds expression in an original creation. And just like the Albiana granite seen in terraces, low walls, pavings and stairs, one stone can multiply creations for a perfect harmony.
AN EXTERNAL AND RESPONSIBLE MATERIAL
Extremely resistant, stone conserves its properties over time. No wonder the indoor flooring and paving created by the Egyptians or Romans reached our time intact. Better still, time adds its patina to stone and reveals its nuances. The processing stages consume little energy compared with synthetic materials. Stone’s exceptional durability saves our natural resources.
A SOUND INVESTMENT AT AN AFFORDABLE COST
What if the choice of an exclusive lifestyle proved affordable and, in many respects, a good deal? For example, certain stones like slate are cheaper than many flooring solutions. Our calibrated stones of consistent quality are easier to lay than any industrial tiling. Durable, enhanced over time, natural stone increases the value of your project and promises remarkable value-added.
EASY TO CLEAN
As a living matter it requires little maintenance. The material is chosen based on its use. For a kitchen work plan for instance, a hard, resilient stone like granite will be preferred. So to preserve, protect and simplify the cleaning of this already well-chosen stone, a liquid treatment once every 4/7 years, depending on the use and the type of stone, is sufficient. For daily cleaning, soapy water will keep the stone’s natural look and patina.

- Attractive: time adds patina to stone and reveals its nuances
- Exclusive: each stone is unique
- Ecological: durable materials, low-energy processing
