Choosing a Natural Stone for Your Poolside

10 Jul, 2018 |

A pool isn’t complete without the added look of natural stone. Natural stone is a timeless feature that enhances the look of the swimming pool area by giving it a classic feel. When you are considering your options and trying to determine what type of stone to get, keep in mind that granite and quartz are two of the most popular types that most people choose. This is due to the many benefits that each stone offers the customer.

Why Granite?

Granite, a natural stone that requires no manufacturing, has been used in homes for many years and has a look that never goes out of style. Given that it is natural, it has a variety of earth-toned colors that smoothly transition throughout. It is also eco-friendly in that it emits little carbon emissions during its preparation phase. Once sealed regularly, it can last for many years. One of the best features is that it does not reflect heat on a hot day.

Why Quartzite?

Quartzite is another customer favorite because of the uniformity that comes from its solid color. Many believe that this makes it easier to match with other outdoor décor. As an engineered stone, quartzite is easy to maintain because it only requires basic care. Given that it is a non-porous material, it is germ-free, which is a priority for an area where skin may be exposed. It, too, is very durable and can last for decades. Quartzite also stays cool in warm weather.
