Natural Stone products come from the earth itself and are not man-made. Slate, granite, limestone, and basalt are often used as a building product due to their strength and durability. These can then be cut into thin strips to create a stone veneer that can be placed in the interior or exterior of your home. Unlike manufactured stone, natural stone can vary in color, due to mineral deposits, giving it a very unique look. Bring the beauty of nature to your next project.
Natural Stone offers the most beautiful, durable, efficient, and long-lasting material for your space. It can handle extreme temperatures, is low maintenance, and is resistant to wear and tear including rot and mold.
NSVI is proud of their responsible and environmentally friendly utilization of land. Their methodology of cutting each stone thin allows twice the coverage of traditional stone and allows them to reap double the amount of finished product available from the quarry deposit. They use their quarries to its full capacity, not wasting any materials from each deposit.
They fully abide by the principles of ‘waste not, want not’, and in so doing, encourage their customers to do the same. From the stone itself to packaging and beyond, NSVI aims for the highest level of transparency and eco-consciousness for their consumers.
The Stone Mill
The Stone Mill boasts, “If you can dream it, we can supply it,” a saying we have found to be true. All of their stone is quarried in Michigan, ranging between common granite cobble and widely varied colors of limestone. Some of their product was even excavated during the construction of the locks of Sault Ste. Marie.
The Stone Mill is led by a fourth-generation mason who began cutting natural thin veneer decades ago for his own projects, which turned into a small operation of selling to other masons who could easily tell the skill and patience with which it took.
Kafka supplies more than sixty colors, which are available in practically any size. Founded in 1979, the company has grown to one of North America’s leading suppliers in stone, whether that be crushed stone, thin and full veneers, or common granite. Kafka utilizes multiple quarry sites throughout the U.S. and Canada, which, when combined with fine-tuned stone crushing, leads to the manufacture of high-quality products across a wide range of appearances and aesthetics.
In terms of sustainability, Kafka is a front-runner in industry standards. Simple, but extremely effective changes include reusing pallets, the installation of a dust collection system that runs throughout the plant, and their line of recycled aggregates.
Norstone supplies premium natural stone products on a global scale, providing options made from basalt, quartz, or quartzite-based sedimentary stone, specifically chosen for their strength and durability. Most of their products are perfectly suitable for both indoor and outdoor uses; however, certain colors are subject to extensive freezing/thawing, which we will keep in mind as we help you choose what will specifically fit your home best.
Most notably, Norstone’s classic rock panel collection, which comes in four colors – ochre, charcoal, ivory, and white – is a high-quality choice which is sure to stand the test of time and changing trends. It comes off as a strong, timeless look which may simultaneously blend in or stand out based on placement, lighting, or decoration.
