Huge Granite Slabs Unloading and Ready for Installation

These large pieces of granite are going into a new glass sun room.  The owner picked out the slabs for their artistic movement.  The installer then had the granite fabricated to the specific shop drawings that were done prior to cutting.  Then upon arrival  Albaugh Masonry Stone and Tile Inc. assembled its best granite installers to handle the large pieces.  Extreme care must be taken with stones this size.  Aside from the safety of the people involved the stone’s own weight presents danger to itself.  The handling of the stone correctly in a situation like this is absolutely critical.  There are six stones that make up the carefully considered stone floor.  One broken piece will ruin the effect of the flowing granite veining.

All Six Slabs Safely in Place

A small amount of clean up is all that is left after the granite is set.

The Effect of the Entire Room

The Furnishings are the Part that Makes it Feel Complete

A contrasting granite border is put around the perimeter to accentuate the artistic pattern created with the large slabs.  Then yet another granite is selected and planters are installed at three locations.  After the granite is done Deborah Silver and Company came in and designed and planted the greenery.  The effect feels like a living exhibit at an art museum.
