Interior Flooring

We are specialists in natural slate flooring and other stone flooring.  We provide custom cut slate and natural stone flooring to colleges/universities, residential projects and large civic projects.  An example of a recent large stone flooring project is our supply of Grafton white marble flooring (wall cladding, cubic treads, etc) to the WTC Oculus in lower Manhattan, designed by Santiago Calatrava.  We quarry slate in Vermont and New York, and fabricate custom slate flooring in one of our three fabrication mills.  In addition to slate flooring, we also offer many of the highest quality stones in the world for custom stone flooring.  As quarrying and fabrication experts ourselves, we work closely with our partners to ensure quality and timely delivery.  We offer hundreds of choices in stone flooring materials, colors, finishes and sizes.  From natural slate flooring tile or large ‘stone floor slabs’ to exterior stone paving from large format slate pavers to limestone cobbles, custom stone flooring and paving is a very large part of what we do.  We are a leader in the industry, perhaps because we are quarriers and fabricators ourselves.   Architects specify our company because we have a reputation for honesty, reliability and quality work.  They specify our stone flooring and paving for its natural beauty, performance characteristics, low maintenance, and durability. And because we produce these stones in custom sizes and offer several finishes, architects also appreciate the flexibility our materials afford them in their designs.  Slate flooring is well used from the inside to the outside, its natural cleft surface providing a natural and textural non-slip surface that is – much like slate roofing – very resistant to weather.
