Marble and Terrazzo

Marble is a cultural symbol of refined taste. With its varied and colorful patterns, it was the favorite medium for the Greek and Roman sculptors and architects. In today's world, its durability and the variety of applicable uses make it an excellent medium in building decoration. Well-maintained marble can make a building stand out, whether that marble is on the floors, the walls, or in elevator cabs.

Granite

Granite is an incredibly hard material that has widely been used in construction for centuries, but that has roots back as far as the ancient Egyptians. More durable than marble, granite is often used for floors, monuments, counter-tops and even curling stones. While granite is more resistant to staining than marble, and holds its polish better, it still does need to be polished. Most granites can be polished in the field, whether on floors or walls.
