FAQ Guide on Stone and Marble:
Stones, as the name says, are formed through natural processes. That has made the sites where you can source high-quality stones scatter all over the world. Different countries have varying sources of natural stones. Some of these natural stones display superiority over others regarding appearance, hardness, and other desirable qualities.
Natural stones are quarried in almost every continent. Some of these quarrying sites have since established, making it more economical to import than to start a new quarrying site within the country. Buying heavy machinery and setting up processing plants are way much expensive. It is this financial advantage that makes many suppliers in China import stones.
Natural stones are quarried, sized, and shaped as appropriate. There is a standard for doing this. That is the only reason why you will have to consider the industry standards when placing an order for any stone. Also, the sizes vary depending on the application.
The following are some of the common sizes you can find in the market:
Standard stone tile sizes include squares of 4”, 6”, 8”, 12”, 16”, 18”, and 24”.
The standard thickness for 12” square tiles is 3/8”.
Standard thickness for 16”-24” square tiles varies from 0.5” – 0.75”.
Slab sizes vary from 104”x70” to 125”x80”.
Please note that you can get smaller or larger tiles upon request. However, customized sizes can be a bit expensive compared to pre-made or standard sizes. Also, slates and quartz may not come in the exact size provided. The dimensions quoted for these types of natural stones are approximations or nominal.
This question bothers many customers, and they often complain of receiving what they did not order for. The color variation between the picture and the actual product is attributed to the monitor resolutions. The screen resolution of the gadget used in viewing the photograph is to be blamed.
Usually, the variation is not that much. Some people who are not keen may not realize the difference. But if you do, then it is because of the display resolution mentioned earlier.
The natural process never replicates, as is the case in laboratories and factories. The conditions that led to the formation of a particular stone in Asia can never be the same as the conditions that led to the stone formation in America. Also, the chemical composition of the earth’s crust varies from region to region.
The variation in stone qualities in different regions has also resulted in different applications. That is why you will find that some countries focus more on limestone than granite. The differences in size, color, and hardness depend on geological formation, which can never be the same.
Yes. We can supply samples to give you a true picture of the quality and sizes of our stones. This will help us eliminate the confusion brought about by differences in display resolutions. If you need a stone sample, just contact us, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

The prices of stones are derived from the quarrying and processing times. Natural stones that are difficult to quarry and require time to process will be more expensive than others that can be quarried using simple methods. The more expensive these processes are, the more you will pay for the natural stone materials.
The distance that the quarried stones have to be transported to the processing company also contributes to the price variations.
This is self-explanatory. The bigger the stone, the more expensive it is to handle during packaging and transportation. Big stones are also likely to break in the process leading to more wastes. In the end, it is you, the end-user, who bears all cost implications.
Yes, but not that much. You will indeed have some benefits of scale when you buy in large quantities, but it is not a very significant figure. The availability of the stone in question is the major contributor to the price. Also, you can buy stone products on promotion to save on the cost.

They include forgetting to seal the stone tiles, use of incorrect adhesive, and poor surface preparation. We suggest that you order a few more squares for special situations. Also, all of our products are guaranteed, our after-sales team will sort out reasons and you will be properly compensated.
In addition, you can avoid these problems from occurring when you have skills in installing stone tiles. If you are not experienced, then you should hire a professional. It is better to incur the installation cost and have a good job done than making regrettable mistakes.
The secret to a long service life of natural stone is proper installation and maintenance. They should be installed and sealed to make them water-tight. This will avoid damping that can reduce their lifespan.
Once your stones are beautifully laid down, you need to care for them to maintain their elegance. You do so by cleaning with appropriate cleaning agents. Fortunately, the stone surfaces can be easily cleaned with warm water or mild liquid soap.
Never use acid-based cleaners or any other acidic solution because they will instantly react with the stone. Most natural stones can react with these chemicals, leading to a dull surface. Always use recommended cleaners. Contact us if you are not sure of the right cleaner to use.
