STONE FLOOR – BEAUTIFUL AND RELIABLE (part 1)
Everyone who at least once independently made repairs in the apartment or built another room can rightfully call himself a master. By searching for the necessary information on the construction forums and in the articles, comparing and analyzing what material to use, one involuntarily becomes a professional. The extreme point of any repair is the floor. Depending on the type of premises, special requirements are put forward to it. But they have one thing in common – the floor must be so strong as to withstand the expected load.

There are several criteria to consider when choosing a floor covering. Among the main ones:

After the glass falls on the tile, chips will remain on it, and the tree is short-lived. Linoleum is afraid of water, and if your neighbors flood you from above, then wiping with a rag and forgetting an unpleasant incident will not work. Over time, the coating will swell.
Stone floors are durable and practical. In the summer they keep cool. And in winter, with the help of the “warm floor” technology they give coziness and comfort. There is no need to talk about aesthetic appeal. Even if you don’t have enough money for a complete repair, replacing the old flooring with a spectacular stone floor will significantly transform the whole house.

Pros and cons of sex
Like all materials, such coatings have their advantages and disadvantages. Among the main advantages of a stone floor can be identified:
high resistance to damage;
refractoriness and hygroscopicity;
aesthetics and elegance;
environmental friendliness and hygienic safety.
Important: the stone coating goes well with the “warm floor”, which will provide comfort even in winter.
The stone floor has minor flaws. For example, laying marble near a pool is undesirable, since prolonged contact with water can change the color of the coating. But granite will cope with this task perfectly. An abrasive is also undesirable. At the entrance to the room to protect against scratches, it is necessary to lay a rug. In any case, such minor flaws are not able to cross out the virtues that the stone floor gives us.
