We carry a spectrum of premium products. Some of the most popular include:
Marble is a natural stone that comes in a variety of colors, both dark and light, and natural patterns like streaks, swirls or speckles. While it is mostly used for flooring, it can also be used to construct countertops, pillars, mantels and banisters. It spells luxury and is the most stylish and opulent choice for interiors. A quote for best quality marble interiors can be fairly steep.
Its most desirable feature is its high resistance to heat. Floors constructed from marble stay cool to the touch in hot weather. It can create a cool ambiance if it is used to construct pillars and facades in a space. Marble slabs do not fade or degrade over time. However, they are more susceptible to staining, scuffing, burning and other types of wear and tear than most other natural stones.
Granite is a hard and compact natural stone. It is used for interior applications like kitchen counters and exterior ones like building facades. Its most attractive properties are its durability and its high resistance to wear and tear and temperature variations. The way granite is quarried and processed, gives rise to thousands of varieties of color, pattern and texture. There is a type to fit every aesthetic and it is readily available through wholesale as well as retail. Its slightly abrasive texture makes it ideal for non-slip surfaces. Owing to its variety, durability and low maintenance, it is the most popular choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops. However, it is susceptible to burning and scratching if exposed to very rough use. It will require a sealant or coating to protect it.
Quartz is a man-made material constructed from ground quartz, pigment, resin and other additives. Engineered quartz is the trendy new option in home décor. It fits in with a sleek and contemporary look. Its high durability when compared with traditional choices such as granite makes it a great choice for kitchen counters and areas that typically suffer frequent wear and tear. It can effectively resist stains and scratches. It is non-porous and does not require sealant protection. It is a safe material as it resists microbial growth such as bacteria and mildew and also stays free of viruses. It also comes in the widest variety of colors and textures of all types of stones, since it is manufactured as opposed to natural.
It is not suitable for outdoor use, however, as it is not UV-resistant and can get damaged by sunlight. Its heat resistance threshold is also low. It is also more expensive than granite.
Quartzite is a hard natural rock that is created from sandstone through the heating and pressure-application that naturally occurs during tectonic compression. Since it is composed of tiny crystals, it lends a sparkly look to surfaces and facades on which it is used. Quartzite resists chemicals and is easy to clean and maintain. It also resists heat and stains and is much tougher against impact when compared with marble and granite. It is a good choice for exterior cladding of building facades and paving of garden paths as it is weather-proof and is available in a variety of colors and textures. It has an earthier, coarser feel than quartz because it is natural. Quartzite requires sealant protection against wear and tear as well as microbial infestation because it is porous.
Mackson Marble offers excellent stone cutting and installation. We routinely perform these installations for retail customers:
Kitchen countertops are exposed to the harshest wear and tear in the interior of a home. So a stone that is not only stylish but also durable is the right choice. While aesthetic plays a major role in the selection of the ideal material for a kitchen counter or island, durability, cost of installation and maintenance also play a part in minimizing long-term expense.
A marble countertop would be the best choice purely based on aesthetics. It oozes luxury and elegance. For a home that is decorated as such, a marble counter will transport the luxurious vibe to the kitchen, especially if it is an open plan. However, marble being a soft stone is vulnerable to chipping, scuffs, and especially stains.
The most popular choice for countertops is granite. A variety of colors and patterns are available through wholesale as well as retail to fit any taste. It is durable and easy to maintain.
Quartz and quartzite lend a sleek and contemporary look to the space. Quartz has a highly polished synthetic look and quartzite is a bit earthier. Quartz is resistant to microbial growth, which can flourish in a hot humid and environment like a kitchen where there can be food spills and spatter.
Granite and quartzite may need some pre-treatment and sealant protection to safeguard their porous surfaces and help them last longer.
The stone selected for an outdoor patio, paving or poolside deck needs to be resistant to harsh weather changes. Marble stays cool in hot weather, making it a good choice for a backyard patio with hot summers. Granite has a slightly abrasive texture, making it slip-resistant, and so it is ideal for poolside paving. Quartz is the only stone that is unsuitable for exterior use since it is not UV-resistant and not very heat resistant either. It can fade from prolonged exposure to harsh sunlight.
Marble and granite are ideal for edging a barbecue pit as they can protect you from burning yourself by touching a hot surface.
The flooring of a home can be the visual focus of the space so aesthetic and individual taste command this decision. Cost of purchase and installation and ease of maintenance also play a role. Marble fits in very well with opulent and classical décor and keeps the space cool in warm weather. But it is a soft and porous stone that can suffer under heavy foot traffic. It is among the pricier options.
Granite is a popular choice as it is more affordable than marble and readily available in a variety of colors and patterns. A quote for granite flooring will not be too expensive. It is denser and more durable than marble. Marble floors offer more light-colored options while granite colors are at the darker end of the spectrum.
Apart from the major categories of flooring and countertops, stone is also used in a variety of interior and exterior applications. It is used in the cladding of building facades. When used on the exterior, it adds an aesthetic touch and also protects the building from harsh weather. Quartz and quartzite are used most often in facades due to their high weather-resistance and durability.
Marble is used in interior aspects such as banisters, pillars, fireplace trim and mantels. Granite, marble, quartz or quartzite can be used for kitchen backsplash. Some exterior uses are garden path paving and edgings of pools and barbecue pits. Weather-resistant quartzite is an ideal choice for exterior applications such as facades and also for interior accent walls and decorative wall finishing.
