For starters, natural stone flooring is exactly what it says it is: Natural stone. At Gowdy Flooring, we offer a great selection of flooring systems that look like stone. These are very high-quality flooring materials that can last for years and years, but, they are not made of stone.
The increased value that we mentioned above comes from a few things associated with stone floors that makes them unique. For instance, in terms of long life, stone flooring can last for hundreds of years if it is cared for properly. We know this is true because we still see beautiful stone floors in ancient castles, cathedrals, and mansions.
Natural stone flooring is also unique in its appearance and feel. When you gaze upon a quality stone floor, you know you are looking at a quality stone. There is no doubt about it. And, when you step onto stone floors, you notice that particular feel it has that nothing else can compare to.
The one drawback to natural stone flooring that homeowners need to consider is its weight. Not every home can support this weight, if that weight is considerable. The good news is Gowdy Flooring in Amarillo, TX has some of the most experienced natural stone flooring installers in the area, and we will be happy to help you determine whether your home is able to carry this weight or not.
