Natural Stone Veneer is popular because of its natural properties and looks. Customers love it because sealing is optional and for those wanting to seal there are a number of options that can help achieve various looks including shiny and matte.

Large, porcelain pavers are a huge hit right now. They are anti-slip, anti-stain, they require no seal, and are easy to clean. There are also a number of different ways to install them and they can be used in various parts of an outdoor space including a pool area.
