The surface underfoot stays cool comparable to the stone imitations because there are no metals in TruStone Marble products, unlike concrete which contains metals that retain heat in the summer months. Our pavers are also calibrated and rectified. Which means the use of sand between the joints is unnecessary. TruStone Marble’s unique capillary action allows moisture to escape, even in the most extreme freeze-thaw cycling without stressing the materials (which is very important in Northern climates).
The stone’s surface has a high coefficient of friction for a non-slip exterior, even when wet. Since TruStone Marble has been compressed in its natural state for millions of years, it is extremely durable and has a PSI strength stronger than most concrete products.
