ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES OF NATURAL STONE
Natural stone tiles are distinct and unique
You should always view several pieces of the tile that is to be installed before the installation begins. Since it has been created by nature, not only are no pieces exactly alike, those two pieces may not even be very similar.
The most common natural stone tiles include
Slate, flagstone (sandstone), marble, granite, travertine and limestone. Each stone has unique characteristics and maintenance requirements.
Generally, you should seal natural stone tile before grouting
Unless you are planning on using the grout color in the stone as a design element.
Most natural stones are not resistant against common household acid (lemon juice) or oil stains
Therefore, you should use a penetrating sealer for all natural stones after installation. Follow manufacturers instructions on frequency of re-application.
