Interior window sill replacement is a common enough requirement as the over saturation of water causes mildew and rot to the original wood. Throughout the seasons with constant expansion and contraction, eventually the wood sill undermines the integrity of a window’s basic structure. A popular replacement alternative is natural stone for its ability to act as a natural water barrier to shield the window by preventing water from intruding on the sill and drywall construction. Special Marble, Granite and Travertine sills are designed as a flat stone with a finished edge, typically a 1/8 inch bevel.
Stonexchange at Window Sills specializes in the manufacture and sales of a variety of natural quarried stone. Our customers are building and flooring contractors, and interior designers interested in enhancing their architectural appointments. Due to the quality and unique nature of the stone selected for interior window sill replacement, they beautifully complement existing décor. Natural stone is a durable, protective surface that introduces a level of grandeur no other material can provide.
The five standard stone classifications offered through Window Sills are:
– Nuevo Carrara White
– Absolute Black Granite
– Pure White Thazoz
– Crema Sahara Marfil
The Nature of Natural Stone
Marble is a metamorphic rock that results from the recrystallization of carbonate minerals, such as limestone and dolomite. The interlacing of carbonate crystals form tessellations that mimic a mosaic pattern. The characteristic colors, swirls and venation that occur are due to deposits of mineral impurities, such as clay, micro-crystalline quartz, sand, silt and iron oxides as they form layers in the stone.
White marble, such as Pure White Thazoz, occurs from the fewest impurities in the deposits that form over time. The Nuevo Carrara White has striking black veins and subtle swirls while the Crema Sahara Marfil is creamy and subdued with more blending than contrasting coloration. Matching stone is a matter of complementing as no two pieces are ever alike.
Travertine is also a form of limestone, the result of centuries of mineral deposits carried by the waters of hot springs. There is a naturally fluid appearance in the degree of color variations. The characteristic fissures or holes appearing in the stone can be intensified depending on the cut. Cross cutting against the veins will reveal more color shades of differing tones while vein cutting reveals more consistently parallel venation. The colors vary in a stunning blend of white, creams and tans.
Granite is an igneous rock and one of the strongest materials on the planet. Uniquely, granite is known to be found only on Earth. Due to its strength and lack of internal structures, it has been a popular construction stone for centuries. Black granite makes a dramatic statement wherever it is used.
