This Stone Blog is dedicated to keeping clients informed. New developments and photos of completed projects are posted where natural stone has been specified and installed on projects.
Como Stone have a new natural stone paving display yard. You can select stone paving, flooring, cladding, stack stone and decorative items which are all on display. We have an area of 400 sq meters dedicated to displaying the natural stone materials which we can supply from stock. Come visit and discuss your project requirements, see how we can add value, style and prestige to both interior and exterior areas. We supply, fabricate and complete the installation of all items we display. It is your one stop shop for all things in natural stone.
Stone steps with risers are one of the many special pieces that we fabricate for contracts. The depth and height, the finish and the thickness are all variables you can select to compliment your project. As displayed in the photos below we custom fabricate additional items like pool copings along with your stone step treads and risers. One picture below displays a recent contract where we created a curved edge pool coping with a 115mm apron giving more substance and weight to the pool surround. Can you imagine how heavy and difficult to handle these stone copings would be in the event that we fabricated them in 115mm solid stone pieces? (mind your fingers during installation!!)
The use of border definition by employing the same field stone but with a different surface finish can tie areas together and create a homogeneous surface. Each area will have its own design and security requirements and these can be accommodated. Swimming pools require minimum slip and alfresco dining will often abut to internal floors and the transition from one surface to the next should smoothly transition to create a larger and aesthetically pleasing environment. Call us to discuss your requirements and let’s push some ideas around the table.
The Outdoor living expo was a huge success, held in the Claremont showgrounds over the weekend of the 8th and 9th March 2015. Our stand was received exceptionally well with a huge interest shown in the selected stone pavers and stone tiles displayed for both professional and end user prospects. The decision to mount the materials in display tables measuring 1200mm X 1200mm allowed prospects to see a true variation in the shade and tones of the materials that are inherent characteristics with natural stone. The general public and trade visitors were very hands on and were eager to discuss their requirements and project details. Thanks to Michelle for her commitment and hard work over the weekend generating the top number of quality leads and assisting more than 58 interested visitors with information, prices and advice concerning the selection and installation of stone.
The outdoor living expo provided Como Stone Co with a showroom facility that generated considerable interest from trade prospects who we look forward to developing long term mutually beneficial relationships with. It was also well attended by our existing clients, many of whom popped in to say hello and offer their support. Great weekend, in every sense. Thank you everyone.
