Natural Stone Slab

  • Slabs are solid pieces of stone that are used for countertops, backsplashes, wall and surrounds.

  • More expensive than natural stone tile.

  • Different stone types are better suited for different uses. Granite is the most popular slab for kitchen counters for hardness and durability.

  • Seams in slabs are possible and can be visible depending upon the application and layout.

  • Edge Treatments

    • You will have a choice of edge treatments for slab. Some edge details are simply the edge of the slab rounded or cut in different styles such as a bullnose, bevel edge, or ogee. The other type is called a laminated edge where there are two pieces of stone laminated together to form more of an overhang. With the laminated edges you will see a seam.

What About Sealing?

It is highly recommended that you seal your stone tile or slab after it is installed to provide additional stain resistance and to protect the stone’s original beauty. There are different types of sealers depending on the type of stone. Scratches, stains, etching and dulling of the surface are all permanent damage and forever alter the appearance of your stone. Ask your design consultant for information about sealing.
