Available in slabs or tiles and a variety of finishes, rough or semi-polished serpentine is a newly available non-porous natural stone that presents an ideal option for covering areas that experience rigorous outdoor usage.
Resistant to heat, acidity, and surface scratches, harder than granite, and twice as durable as porous marbles and sandstones, rough or semi-polished serpentine will outlast any commonly used exterior building material currently in use.
The coveted neutral tones of sandstone and unpolished granite can also be achieved with serpentine, which is a natural green stone that displays a tasteful grey color when dry. Even better, serpentine will not fade, for as long as your exterior is in place. Unlike granite and other common exterior coverings, no-maintenance serpentine retains its color with no additional polishing or finishes.
Elegant and durable, rough or semi-polished serpentine is appropriate for paving a driveway, cladding a wall, building a spa, or adding a chic bit of nature to any pool-side setup. Architects, homeowners, and discriminating builders everywhere are newly discovering the long-lasting beauty of serpentine for exterior applications of all kinds.
