Why it is worth using natural stone in construction?
Apart from aesthetical values natural stone has also high durability which lasts for years . It is worth using natural stone as it fits well with natural environment and looks good in traditional and modern construction. 

What kind of stone would be the most appropriate for…?
There are different kinds of sandstone. Sandstones we are using fulfill Polish construction standards. Most of them are harder and are the most appropriate in arranging floor, stairs, countertops and vanity tops or interior window sills (e.g. Długopole, Brenna, Mucharz, Koniakowy and Yellow Remlinger or Sunrise sandstone).  Sandstones that are softer can be used for elevations, exterior window sills, milled portals, fireplaces  and garden sculpture (e.g. Wartowice, Czaple, Żeliszów, Rakowiczki and others sandstones).



Why a stone elevation is better and more solid than a traditional one?
Stone elevation is better and more solid than a traditional one because is long-lasting and more aesthetic. With its original form stone elevation stands out among ordinary plasters.



What is the best natural stone for the elevation of the construction?
Every sandstone can be used for the elevation of the construction. The only condition is to adjust suitable colors of the stone to the general style of  building. For buildings in warm colors we tend to apply sandstones in similar coloring such as Długopole, Wartowice, Żeliszów, Pustynna Czerwień, Żerkowice, Rakowicki, Sunrise, Koniakowy and Yellow Remlinger. For buildings in grey coloring or equipped with glass or aluminum elements we use the following sandstones: Brenna and Mucharz.

How can an elevation be installed?
The elevation can be fixed in various manners. The elements of different sizes including big slabs and also small parts can be used for the elevation. The stone can have a smooth, rough-fired, bush hammered or split surface. Moreover, we use  the combinations of different stone texture. It is also possible to adjust decorative elements – milled or sculptured -  to the building with appropriate character and style.

What are the methods of install the stone elevations?
There are numerous methods of installing the stone elevation depending on the components applied in construction. A modern way of fixing the stone elevation on the vertical surfaces is applying non-rusting bolts. There are two kinds of bolts:  carrying and stabilizing bolts. The stone load is situated on carrying bolts. Bolts of different parameters and strength are applied to the elevation. Their use depends on the size, stone weight and the materials used to install the elevation. Stabilizing bolts are used for keeping the stone in vertical position. A special grid is used on the sloping, irregular walls as well as the surfaces difficult to adapt.

What kind of stone is the most suitable for stairs?
The best material for stairs is firm sandstone e.g. Długopole, Brenna, Mucharz, Sunrise, Koniakowy and Yellow Remlinger. The sandstone stairs are cheaper than granite or marble counterparts. Such stairs are beautiful, durable and safe because the grinded sandstone isn’t slippery. Polished granite or sandstone aren’t recommended for exterior stairs.

Can stone defrost?
Quarries are obligated to carry out technical test of the stone. Sandtones we are using fulfill standards of frost resistance.

What kind of stone can be applied in the garden?
The best stone for the garden architecture is sandstone. Sandstone has natural coloring and it fits well to a greenery of the garden.
Various elements of the sandstone can be used in the garden, e.g scrap sandstone, splitted and other wall cladding sandstone. Sandstone is suitable for laying alleys and walls as well as making benches, fountains, garden sculptures and pots.

How to preserve the stone from dirt and influence of atmospheric conditions?
All sandstones elements that are clean and dry should be sealed. We are applying hydrophobe products that protect stone against humidity, grease and stains.
