Stone & Slate
We carry many styles of stone, stone mosaic and local Vermont slate. These materials are stylish options for bathroom or entry areas where slip-resistance is a necessity. When selected from well-managed quarries, stone tiles are a great alternative to ceramic or vinyl for wet areas, and their natural beauty will last the life of the house and beyond. Stones are also very receptive to passive solar heating, as they hold and radiate heat long after the sun goes down.
Our supplier works closely with the family quarries to ensure fair labor and sustainable stone quarried practices.
