Granite is a common, coarse-grained, light-colored, hard igneous rock consisting chiefly of quartz, orthoclase or microcline, and mica, used in monuments and for building. Granite stone is typically hardest of the dimensional stones and can effectively withstand the vagaries of nature. Granite tiles are quite literally, as old as the earth, perfect for use in residential and commercial flooring applications. Granite Slabs are ideal for fabricating granite counter tops, flooring, retaining walls and landscaping around a center fountain/pond.
A marble is a metamorphic rock formed by alteration of limestone or dolomite, often irregularly colored by impurities and used especially in architecture and sculpture. Marble tiles are suitable for bathrooms, entryways and fireplaces, living & dining areas. Marble floor tiles are also used for both interior and exterior flooring applications. Some of the different colors of marble are white, red, black, mottled and banded, gray, pink, and green.
A slate is a fine-grained metamorphic rock that splits into thin, smooth-surfaced layers, forming an essential building material used at a large scale in the construction of buildings. Slate tiles and slate stones are suitable for Exterior and Interior Applications such as wall-cladding, roofing, flooring etc. Slate Stones are known by many names such as grey slates, flags, flagstones, thick stones, slats, flatstones, stone tiles and tilestones.
Limestone is a common sedimentary rock consisting mostly of calcium carbonate, CaCO3, used as a building stone and in the manufacture of lime, carbon dioxide, and cement. Essentially a Dolomite stone possessing oil-resistant properties, Limestone shows high resistance in freezing and thawing conditions. It is generally used as limestone tiles, limestone slabs in flooring, wall cladding, vanity tops and to pave the floors of large commercial complexes, hospitals, airports, shopping malls, railway stations, parks etc
Sandstone is actually a sedimentary rock formed by the consolidation and compaction of sand, which is held together by a natural cement, such as silica. Natural sandstone is an extremely hard and tough material. Sandstone is typically the youngest of the quartz-based stones, with each stone having a different level of porosity, hardness and compressive strength. Indian sandstone is suitable for domestic and commercial use. Owing to their natural beauty, sandstones are used for interior as well as exterior decoration including flooring, paving, cladding walls and floors.
Pebblewash refer to the building material that is used to construct patios. Big houses usually
have enough space outside the main building but within the boundary walls of the houses.
This space is designed in a manner that can be used for sitting and other such purposes. Pebblewash
themselves are made of different raw materials and these are used in the construction of paver
patios of various different designs.
