Architectural Cut is custom dimension-cut natural stone produced for commercial and high-end residential installations. Architectural elements that can be manufactured to your specifications include paving, headers, sills, caps, quoins, window surrounds and smooth cut stone panels.
Architectural Cut is available with the following finishes:
- Brushed: As the name implies, brushing is done by brushing the stone with steel or hard nylon brushes. This process leaves a lightly textured surface that tends to be more resilient to scratches and marks. This finish is smooth and may have a small degree of sheen.
- Honed: This smooth, non-reflective, satin-like finish enhances the stone’s natural colors and variations. Honing can be done to suit your requirements. For example, if floor tiles need to be slip-resistance, the stone can be honed with a coarser grade of grit so the surface is matte, as opposed to more polished.
- Chatted: This mechanical process is used to create a texture similar to sandblasting or bush hammered.
- Vermeer: This is a pattern typically only used with white.
