Built To Last

The popular trend in downtown areas all around the country is to restore and revitalize the old buildings and bring life back to the area. Grants are being offered, tax breaks are being given, and loans are being given to help make this possible. The buildings that had good bones are the ones most desired. The ones with masonry work, rock, and stone. So as you think of the next 100 years or more what building material will be able to stand the test of time and be the best use of your hard earned money?

That’s right STONE. It is the only thing not man made and lasts. It comes in so many different colors, thickness, and finishes. It is heavy and solid. It actually costs far less too believe it or not. In the same 100 years the stone will still look like new. Others made of concrete, siding, paint, wood, metal will have deteriorated and need to be replaced.

My older daughter recently was a foreign exchange student at Oxford and traveled throughout Europe. One of her first comments was about the difference in architecture, construction, and age of the buildings. I looked around our central Nebraska city and saw very few buildings and structures that could withstand the elements that are being built today. We are in a time of build cheap and destroy then build again.

As you plan your next project and make your mark in time. Why not think like your ancestors did from around the world and build with stone. Their buildings and structures are still standing and being visited and used daily.

Built on a Rock

granite in handsIn today’s society of throw away and buy for price instead of for quality, deterioration building exteriors is very common. In the long run this ends up costing the buyer the same if not more in the end with all of the remodeling and rebuilding needed down the road in just a few years.

Using natural stone is the answer. It is naturally formed to withstand the elements and the test of time. The colors never fade and the appearance is always first class. Many say it is more difficult to cut and install. That is true. It is the real thing not a cheap imitation.

Today, it is easier than ever to choose a huge variety of colors, cuts, thicknesses, and finishes from all over the world. Just be sure to get with a knowledgeable professional to understand what you are buying so you get the right fit for your project.
