Value of Utilizing Pedestal Systems in Hardscape Paver Installations and Renovations
Yes, even for the backyard pool deck or patio pavers The need for stabilization grids is something that is largely unrecognized throughout the construction industry which sort of boggles the mind. I would say that the large-scale industrial masonry world is understood because they have heavy-duty architects working on road projects, etc. those that require forethought, and longevity. Unfortunately, on the mid-size to small scale projects ie: from parking lots to a backyard patio or pool paver projects, it’s usually not a consideration for reasons that are not understood by me. Stabilization is at the heart of the project when it comes down to longevity of the installation. Anybody can lay down some stone or pavers on soil or grass or anything and they’ll stay there for a week, a month or a year, but if you want them to stay in place for 10, 20, 50 years, you[...]

We specialize in large format stone for a more sleek and modern look
Now we’re providing more cutting-edge offerings of limestone and marble.
Why do we say Limestone is ‘superior’ to Bluestone? Compare the attributes….
1) Limestone has NO METAL (practically speaking), unlike traditional Bluestone from upstate PA/NY that is very laden with natural metal content….
1a) that means it STAYS COOL EVEN IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. That’s right, since it has no mechanism (metal) to draw the heat into the body of the stone it is THERMALLY INERT! It’s a thermal insulator, rather than a thermal conductor!
1b) it is chemically inert to chlorine and salt….. NO Chemical REACTION! Since LIMESTONE and Travertine Limestone are composed of Calcium Carbonate (chemically similar to a salt itself)…..it doesn’t react with salts or chlorine!
2) It is faster and easier to install than Bluestone….
2a) Gothicstone products are produced on marble tile production lines to exact specifications, thereby resulting in a extremely squared and calibrated end product (try comparing that to Bluestone, which is hacked up on very basic saws that[...]
