Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I consider when purchasing granite or marble?

    Since granite and marble are natural stones, they have unique beauty. Customers who are not familiar with these materials may expect the granite or marble they order to be identical to pictures or samples they have seen. Although sample stones are intended to be representative of the material, the granite or marble quarried at one time may differ slightly from the sample’s color and veining. Even a granite or marble slab will possess a certain amount of color variation from one end to the other. These slight irregularities are what make your project unique and different from any other.

  • Should I use granite or marble for my kitchen countertops?

    Marble is typically used for bathroom vanity tops and fireplaces. It is not usually recommended for kitchen countertops due to the fact that it is easy to scratch and acidic substances, such as vinegars and citrus beverages, can leave a stain. On the other hand, granite has become today’s countertop of choice for architects, cabinetmakers, kitchen designers and contractors. A granite countertop is virtually impervious to abrasions, stains and extreme heat. Additionally, the inherent qualities of granite - its color, patterns and shades - compliment the décor. This makes granite an ideal choice for countertops.

  • What’s the best way to clean marble and other soft stones?

    We recommend the use of cleaning products designed specifically for natural stones. There are excellent stone-friendly products available in the market. These products have the correct pH and will not dull your marble, or other natural stone. Never use any acidic products that may include substances with ammonia cleaners, or abrasive pads to clean your stone.

    Measure and Template

    In order to minimize errors or imperfections, we use the best technology available on the market. Direct Natural Stones uses digital laser templating systems. This system is accurate within 1/100th of an inch, and allows for a realtime visual representation of the project.

  • 04
    Fabrication and Polishing

    Once we have the laser templating files, every piece of stone is cut to the exact dimensions. All the edges are then hand cut and polished to perfection. Each piece is polished and buffed. Upon completion of fabrication, the stone is treated with solvent-based impregnators, which ensure minimum maintenance after your stone is installed. We also use fiberglass rods embedded in the underside of the slab section, where sinks are located, for increased rigidity.
