Advantages of Natural Stone Flooring

Introduction
  • When you are on a construction project, be it
    residential or commercial, exterior flooring or
    paving grab a significant amount of your budget
    and proportional promises to returns in terms of
    décor as well as property value in the long run.
    Backyard Patio is an essential part of most
    homes. Façade with a porch is an inevitable
    tradition, which we used to follow in order to
    improve entrance experiences.
  • With the advent of construction technologies and
    material options, exterior paving becomes a big
    concern for owners, contractors, masons, and the
    entire manufacturing to distribution and supply
    chain. However, it also has increased the level
    of confusion and decision paralysis to select
    flooring materials for your exterior
    applications.

Why Natural Stone Flooring for Exterior Spaces?

Natural Stone Flooring Pros and Cons
  • When we go to compare one construction material
    with others, we must take logical approaches and
    adopt scientific views. Therefore, I am going to
    place some stone properties in general, such as
  • Water Absorption Rate

5
Natural Stone Flooring Pros and Cons
  • Coefficient of Friction
  • Physical properties of natural stones in a
    nutshell

Physical Properties Physical Properties
Hardness 3 to 4 on Mohs scale
Density 2.5 to 2.65 kg/m3
Compressive strength 1800 to 2100 kg/cm3
Water absorption capacity Less than 1
Porosity Low
Weather impact Resistant
6
No.1 Sturdy Material
  • We know natural stones have a hardness between 3
    to 4 Mohrs scales. It means it hard and tough
    material suitable for exterior applications where
    foot traffic is high and wears tear is expected.
    Natural stone hardly breaks or cracks easily it
    is thanks to its high compressive strength.

No.2 Durable Choice
  • Natural stones used in exterior applications have
    low porosity, vitreous, and weather resistance.
    Therefore, it stays for a longer period compared
    to other paving solutions, perhaps for centuries.
    It hardly fades in color and appearance, instead
    natural wears tears enhance its natural appeals
    more.

No.3 Natural Beauty
  • Natural stones have grains, veins, patterns, and
    unique colors. The amalgamation of all renders it
    unique material with natural beauty that we love
    to stare all time with triggered imagination.

No.4 Weather Resistance
  • The majority of natural stones are heat and frost
    resistant. Low water absorption and porosity
    render them water resistant material. Thus,
    stones remain cool during the hot summer months.
    Snowfalls and very cold climate cannot break or
    crack the surfaces of stones easily.

No.5 -Low Wears Tears
  • By properties, stones are hard and dense material
    to withstand against high foot traffic areas of
    outside spaces. Frequent cleaning and washing
    hardly affect the look-n-feel of stones.
    Sunlight, rains, and frost cannot fade the
    natural beauty of stones

No.6 -Diversity
  • Do you look a diversity in colors, grain size,
    grain style, veins, patterns, and styles to
    create unique layouts, natural stones have
    everything you can expect. Stones have each piece
    unique so give freedom to your eyes and mind to
    get bored or trapped in repetition.

No.7Easy Maintenance
  • Natural stones mostly come in big size slabs or
    tiles attached to each other with grout filling
    material. Therefore, sealing with chemical
    sands/cement or solutions prevent the growth of
    weeds easily. Moreover, you can replace damaged
    slabs or tiles quickly with low efforts and
    expense.

No.8Enhance Property Ratings
  • Natural stones believe a luxury in the
    construction industry when high-quality stones
    applied with beautiful design and gorgeous looks.
  • It increases the reselling value of properties.
    Low maintenance and natural beauty of stones
    tempt buyers to put the stamp of choice
    immediately to your property decorated with
    natural stones.

10
No.9Hygienic Option
  • Stones surfaces with proper finishing never
    retain dirt, liquids, and hazardous material.
    Cleaning and washing of stones are easy and low
    effort job with good tools. Therefore, bacteria,
    virus, and fungus-like threats never get
    permanent shelter where natural stones have laid
    with proper installation methods and regular
    maintenance practices prevailing.

No.10Cost-effective
  • With the advent of quarrying and shipping
    technologies, all kinds of natural stones are
    available at any corner of the world. Cutting and
    finishing technologies have reduced the price
    tags of stone considerably.
