How to Choose the Best Natural Stone Suppliers

By MPG Stone Subscribe to RSS | June 27th 2012 | Views:

Natural stone suppliers can usually be found locally in many areas, and local retailers generally carry a wide variety of local, imported and cultured stone for purchase. Depending on your project, the best value of natural stone could be a native stone, or a certain imported stone like Italian marble or granite. Listed below are just a few natural stone types to choose from to get you started, and what to look for in stone suppliers for each.

Natural Stone Veneers. These can be imported from around the world, and the selection can vary from different types and cuts to different looks like granite. The largest selection will be found in retail store outlets that specialize in natural stone products. You can use natural stone veneers for things like countertops, landscaping, and flooring, and can sometimes be a more affordable choice than full-slap, natural stones like marble and granite.

Landscaping Stone. This type of natural stone is used for walls, patios, walkways, and driveways, and includes such stone as flagstone, limestone, fieldstone and quarry stone. Make sure you choose a supplier that offers knowledgeable staff and deliver services.

Granite and marble. These are most typically used for countertops, flooring, columns, tiles and more. Granite and marble slabs or tiles used for countertops and flooring are generally imported from places like India, Italy, and Brazil. Choose a stone supplier with showrooms so you can get a good look at the stone and its many different variations to decide which one is right for your home project.

Exotic Natural Stone. Found around the world, this type of natural stone is usually used for counters, floors and walls and includes such stone as: travertine, limestone, polished and tumbled marble and granite, slate, ceramic and porcelain, onyx, lapis, and more. One of the cons of exotic natural stone is the cost and the fact is must be special-ordered (usually). Though most natural stone suppliers and retail stores carry samples of exotic natural stone products, you still must order it special from exotic stone suppliers across the country, or overseas. Also, because not all exotic stone are suitable for some projects, knowledgeable staff should be able to tell you what stone is best for your home project.

Since some areas may not have natural stone suppliers, you can visit a large home improvement store and see their selection of natural stone, although they won’t be as varied as the specialty suppliers. The pricing is more affordable than at the natural stone suppliers, but be sure to do your homework first before shopping.
