New England Utopia

Quarry: Southern Turkey
Eastern CONNECTICUT Project: New Pool & Pool House

Buceto limestone

After our client chooses the desired stone for their project, our first step is to source top-quality blocks from the limestone quarry.

The blocks arrive at the factory. They are cut into slabs or strips before final sizing and surface finishing. Gothicstone inspects both the integrity of the material and the production quality.

Gothicstone drop ships the container directly to the project site. When possible, we have a Gothicstone representative on site to oversee the careful unloading of the container.

We consult the client on the proper installation protocols. A cellular confinement system (CCS) is installed underneath the concrete slab for gravel confinement to protect against slab heaving and movement. Need more information on CCS? Read our CCS blog.

We recommended “Stain Proof” impregnating sealer which was implemented on this project.

Templating the pool by the contractor allows us to provide fabrication in the factory of the large radius coping pieces, saving the client time and money.

Cutting the coping and pool house tile from the same blocks of stone allows for a calming flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Our philosophy of end-to-end management benefits every natural stone project ensuring the client has the opportunity to be part of the process.
