Natural stone flooring facts for you

The benefits of all natural stone are well worth the investment to have them installed in your home. For instance, many homeowners appreciate the fact that there are no chemicals or toxicants released into your breathing environment from these materials. Considered a green building material, stone is an excellent choice for those who want to alleviate the possibility of waste products that are created with manmade materials.

In stone flooring, you’ll want to pay special attention to the absorption rating, which tells you how porous the stone is. The more porous, the more susceptible to stain that material will be unless sealed very well. Non-vitreous ratings mean that the flooring is very absorbent and should not be used in any area where dampness could be an issue.

Semi-vitreous ratings mean the stone is less absorbent but will need more maintenance. Vitreous stone is the standard absorption level in which the flooring can be used in both indoor and outdoor settings, in average foot traffic. With an impervious rating, you can feel confident that absorption is almost nil, and these floors are much easier to clean and maintain.
