5 Reasons to Choose Imported Natural Stones Over Local Stones

In the world of natural stone, the debate between using local and imported stones has been a topic of discussion among designers, architects, and builders for years. STONEarch primarily works with imported stones, and here's why they can offer exceptional benefits for your design projects.

Understanding Local Stones

Local natural stones in Canada, like Indiana Limestone, Algonquin, Eramosa, and Cambrian Black Granite, hold a special place in the hearts of many. They showcase the region's beauty with unique patterns, colors, and textures that tell a story of the local geography.

Challenges with Local Stones

While local stones possess undeniable charm, they may not always align seamlessly with the practical requirements of modern design projects:

1. Limited Varieties: Local stones offer a finite range of options, limiting design creativity and flexibility.

2. Weather and Quarry Conditions: The extraction and processing of local stones can be subject to climatic limitations, leading to extended project timelines, especially in regions with extreme weather conditions.

3. Quality Consistency: The quality of local stones can vary, making it challenging to maintain uniformity across a project.

Why Choose Imported Stones?

STONEarch's commitment to imported natural stones is driven by several factors:

1. Ethical Sourcing: Our imported stones are sourced from quarries that adhere to strict ethical guidelines, ensuring fair labor practices and safe working conditions.

2. Environmental Responsibility: Imported stones prioritize responsible land management and environmental preservation. Importing can sometimes be more sustainable than quarrying and shipping locally available stones, especially considering the vast Canadian landscape and harsh climate.

3. Efficiency and Timeliness: Imported stones are curated to streamline processes, mitigating extended lead times and potential project delays due to climate limitations. We understand the importance of timely project delivery.

4. Design Versatility: Imported stones offer various colors, patterns, and textures. This versatility allows designers to explore their creativity and tailor projects to their clients' unique visions.

5. Quality Assurance: We take pride in offering consistent quality with imported stones, ensuring that each piece meets our stringent standards. This level of quality control ensures uniformity and aesthetic excellence.
