Brick, Pavers, and Stone

Do you want to update the look of your fireplace, home exterior, flooring, patio, driveway entrance or any space inside or outside your home with beautiful bricks, glass blocks or stone? These materials do far more than provide function — they can transform a room or your entire home’s appearance.
 
Using stone or brick as exterior siding for your home immediately creates a robust, dramatic look and feel. Both can improve energy efficiency and are far more durable than any other type of siding or wall cladding (covering).
 
Types of Stone Commonly Used in Homes Today:

Limestone

Limestone is a favorite among builders and homeowners because it ages and weathers naturally, without needing chemical treatment to protect color. It is very versatile and can be cut and sculpted for a variety of architectural styles and needs.
 
Limestone is often used in flooring, fireplaces and decorative stonework.

Granite

Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, granite is one of the most popular stones used in homes today because of its extreme hardness and resistance to staining and scratches. It also is very heat and bacteria resistant, making it a favorite for kitchen and bathroom countertops. It can also be used in flooring and curbing.

Travertine

A variation of limestone, travertine is characterized by porous pits, giving it a natural, textured look. It comes in a variety of colors, from very light cream to beige, gold and brown. It can be sanded and sealed, making it suitable for flooring or showers. It’s also used in fireplaces and wall cladding.

Slate

Slate has been a popular building stone for centuries because it can handle seasonal freezing and thawing cycles without cracking. American slate comes in primarily gray, green, purple and red colors, while Asian slates tend to be more orange, gold and copper-colored.
 
Slate is easy to cut so it’s mostly used for flooring and countertops, but is also used in showers, fireplaces and wall cladding.

Marble

Marble is a beautiful, smooth, classic stone that comes in a variety of colors, although white with gray or black veins of color running through it are most common. It is very hard and holds up well, although acidic and bleach products can damage it. Marble is commonly used in fireplaces, flooring, bathrooms and columns.

Brick

Brick made from clay is a proven building material that has been used for thousands of years around the world. It offers superior fire, wind and moisture protection compared to other types of siding.
Brick offers lasting value since it holds up forever, ages well, is energy efficient and requires little maintenance. It comes in countless shades and colors that do not fade over time.

Glass Blocks

Glass blocks create opportunities to bring natural light indoors and create dazzling dividers and walls for bathrooms, kitchens and other spaces within your home. Glass blocks now come in a variety of colors, patterns and sizes.
