Textured Finishes

We have a wealth of experience in our local facility where we can create custom finishes and edges on all of our stones in a timely fashion. We have also produced unique custom finishes and edges on your stone to create a one of a kind look for your installation.
The finish and edge detail of a stone contributes a great deal to its beauty, its durability and its use in a variety of applications. To help you identify the stone finish and edge that is right for your application, here is a description of some of the custom work we can do.
Brushed: A coarse-wire rotary brush is passed over the face of the stone resulting in a texture that reflects a worn, satin-smooth finish.
Bush Hammered: A process by which a tile is battered by machine, leaving a rough dimpled surface. This finish is great when you need excellent skid resistance.
Polished: Polishing gives the stone a brightness and mirror-like effect that intensifies the color of the stone.
Sandblasted: A matte-textured finish with no gloss. There are two ways to create a sandblast finish. One way is to create a micro bush hammer finish and a second way is achieved by a steady pressure wash of sand and air on the stone surface.
Suede: A textured surface that has been softend by brushing to create a smoother matte finish. Suede is sometimes called an “aged” or “ancient” finish.
Tumbled: A tumbled finish is achieved by placing the stone in a special tumbling machine, along with aggregate. These aggregates labor to create a wonderfully worn, weathered effect by battering the face of the tile as well as rounding and softening its edges.
Chiseled Edge: A chiseled edge is normally found on aged limestone, travertine and marble. By chiseling by hand or using a special drill bit, the edge of the tile is given a distressed appearance, while the surface remains honed and smooth.
Pillowed Edge: A pillowed edge is a rounded edge applied to the stone. The effect can be very subtle reflecting a modest radius curve or dramatic, featuring a deep radius curve.
