My advice comes from over 20 years of managing and consulting on thousands of granite, marble and other natural stone projects. I’ve traveled to 17 countries to source stone and establish quality control processes. The natural stone industry is getting more complex everyday due to the massive marketing behind everything that can be extracted from the earth. Technical information and design advice are essential components in making the right decision. I created The Rock Blog to help those in need of advice.
I believe that bringing natural beauty and elegance into a home, business or hotel is presented best by using a product formed when the earth began. However, the feel good experience of natural stone comes to a crashing halt when the selection and installation is performed without professional advice toward design and function. My intent with this website is to provide good feedback to homeowners, installers, contractors and architects.
I have written some articles on this site that may provide you with some immediate information. If you don’t find the answers you are looking for, you can ask a question on this website. I try to reply within 72 hours. I wish you the best with your stone project and I hope I can help.
