To make the right decision, you need to weigh all your pros and cons to decide on what’s best for your home and the area you belong to. You really can’t deny the fact that whatever you decide upon may come with its cons as well. In some cases, the pros may outweigh the cons, but they do exist. So, if you’re thinking of investing in Stone flooring for your patio, or any area of application, we’d love to help you weigh out all your pros and cons.
The Pros of choosing Natural Stones for your area of application
- Strength and Durability
Natural Stones are generally known and are widely popular for their durability and strength. They are especially considered great for high-traffic areas. They have extremely high resistance against harsh weather conditions, are frost-resistant, and Non-slippery. If properly maintained, Natural Stones have the ability to withstand all conditions and last for a lifetime. If you’re looking to redesign your patio or want a good, high-quality material for your Pool Coping, we’d suggest you invest in Natural Stones because they are famous worldwide for being great in strength and highly durable, especially against harsh surroundings.
For the quality they come in, Natural Stones have proved to be a great value for money. They enhance the overall value of your property and are easily available at budgeted rates. On top of that, the initial installment and laying of the stone slabs are fairly easy and can be done without any added costs of labor. With minimal maintenance costs, these stones can serve their purpose for a long time without deteriorating at all. If properly cared for, and note that these stones do not require a lot of maintenance or care, Natural Stones would rarely ever lose their color or texture.
- Adds value to the property and are unique
Natural Stones are unique and are known to add value to your property. They never go out of fashion will always help in making your house stand out. Natural Stones bring a sense of luxury with them that itself enhances the overall value of your property. Why do you think all Monuments and Castles are built using Natural Stones? Because it simply adds value and luxury to them.
Natural Stones come in a vast diversity of colors, textures, and patterns. Isn’t that great? You can easily think of a vibe and get a stone that matches your mood exactly. Say you want a more traditional look; we’d recommend the ‘Autumn Brown Sandstone’ or the ‘Sunset Buff stone’. But if you want more Modern touch we believe the ‘Castle Greystone’ or the ‘Imperial Whitestone’ would work best for you. You decide a mood, and we can help suggest the best stone. Natural Stones can be carved into all shapes and sizes. Initially, they come in huge blocks and are later carved into any shapes and sizes you prefer. You can also choose between light color palette stones and dark color palette stones. If you’re considering redesigning a small piece of land, we’d recommend you go for a lighter color palette, as light colors enhance the overall look of the area, also by creating a sense of added space. But if you want a cozier, intense mood for your area of application, the dark color palette of the “Kadappa Blackstone’ or the ‘Sagar Blackstone’ would be the best options for you. Above all, the stone is a natural material; it is not manufactured or man-made. This means that each slab of a stone would have its unique color and patterns. No two slabs of Natural Stones are identical. We believe that is the best part of using Natural Stones in your home because it adds a sense of nature. Natural Stones are especially great because they add color and enhance the overall exterior of the house by giving it a more natural, organic feel as they flawlessly complement the foliage and other colors of nature around them.
- Environment Friendly
The cherry on top is that Natural Stones Are Environment Friendly. They do not contain any harmful chemicals or toxins or require any other materials or resources to create them. They come in huge blocks when extracted and are carved into the desired shapes and sizes, leaving no harm to the environment.
The Cons of choosing Natural Stones for your area of application
While we strongly believe that the pros outweigh the cons in this case, there are a few things that you need to take into consideration when choosing Natural Stones for your area of application.
- Installation and Transportation costs
Stone is a heavy material. Sometimes the transportation of Natural Stone slabs from the warehouse to your home may cost you a little more than expected. When considering laying the stone in larger areas, you might need to hire a professional to do so. Yes, for smaller DIY projects you may not need anyone at all, but for much bigger projects, you may need to ask for some help. This may add to your labor costs but remember that this is only a one-time expense.
- Requirement of minor touch-ups
Some Natural Stones have smooth and polished surfaces that can sometimes be scratched or dented, requiring minor touch-ups. This may slightly add to your cost of maintenance, but it only adds to the ability of your chosen stone to last for a lifetime. So, if you believe that the pros of Natural Stones really do outweigh the cons, you’re only one decision away from adding luxury and value to your area at a budgeted rate.
