Sustainable beauty

Finnish granite is a respected and durable construction material that is versatile for environmental construction. The basic values of natural stone are authenticity, dignity, and durability. The absolute advantages of domestic stone include its long service life, ease of maintenance, reinstallability, and recyclability. Stone is used, among other things, for streets and square areas, as well as various environmental structures such as wall, bridge and pool structures, street furniture, stairs, platform slabs and curbstone.

The appearance of the stone is finished with surface treatment.

The surface treatment method strongly affects the depth of color on a dry stone surface. A polished stone surface is always the most intense in terms of color, while a cross-hatched surface is the lightest. The most common surface treatments for natural stone are burning, cross-hatching, and splitting. The closest to the natural rock surface is the split surface, which is a good option for certain structures, such as wall stones. When it comes to manufacturing larger units with precision and cost-effectiveness, such as cobblestones, sawn stone products with a burned surface are often used.
