Stone makes a home

April 2014

Taking a long-term view…

Denham Limestone vintaged page 36

Five years is no time at all in the life of natural stone, but our fifth Ca’ Pietra

Collection shows that, as a company, we are here to stay. We’ve grown, too.

From providing a select few products in our early days, we now have a comprehensive range of limestone, travertine, slate and sandstone.

Given the choice, we know that almost everyone would include some natural stone in their home improvement project – whether that’s some floor tiles in the bathroom through to the full treatment… floors, walls, surfaces and fixtures.

So that’s been our mission – to give you the choice, by making really highquality natural stone available, affordable and simple to buy.

We hope you find something in the Ca’ Pietra 2014 Collection for you. There’s on-trend grey stones in these pages; large slabs for dramatic statements; the extraordinary colours and textures of our new Baobab limestones – perfect for a designer bathroom; and many familiar, traditional stones that will look as though they’ve been there forever, the minute you make them part of your home.

Over our five years, we’ve found that the more choice we give you, the more likely you are to choose Ca’ Pietra. We look forward to being part of your project in 2014.

Stone types

Limestone

The classic stone for interiors. Often light in colour, but with tones that can range from grey to black, limestone always has interesting shell and fossil patterns. Limestone is versatile and durable. It ages beautifully and only requires a little cleaning and treatment to ensure that it lasts for generations.

Travertine

The natural surface-pits in travertine are usually filled with grout, leaving the stone with an aged look of instant character, or with special resins for a more sleek appearance.

One feature of travertine is that small holes will appear in the surface from time to time – this is nothing to be unduly concerned about as these holes can simply be filled with a little grout. Travertine is easy to care for but is a good choice for areas which are not so heavily used. Travertine is closely associated with Italian architecture and design.

Slate

Slate makes wonderful, characterful floors – with metallic colouring and natural undulations. It is very hardwearing and, because of its darker colouring, less demanding in terms of maintenance than many stones.

Sandstone

Sandstone is a robust sedimentary rock, made up of compacted grains of sand. It is hard-wearing, frostresistant and low-slip – properties which make it the perfect choice for external paving. Sandstone has graced pavements and gardens in the

UK for centuries.

With a ‘seasoned’ finish, a process that softens the coarseness of the stone, Ca’ Pietra sandstone can also be used for interior floors, giving an authentic old flagstone look.

Stone types

Is there any other material quite like stone?

Stone is an investment with both immediate and long-term returns. Stone instantly enhances the look of your home, providing you with increased enjoyment as a place to live. For the future, you can be confident that stone will improve the value and marketability of your property.

Ca’ Pietra is a collection of classic stones designed specifically to provide something to suit any interior project and any budget. Whether you are looking for a flourish of Italian style, or the more restrained look of an English country house, Ca’ Pietra has the stone for you.

Suitability advice

The main distinction when deciding the perfect stone for your project is whether it will be laid indoors or outdoors. But the way the stone is ‘finished’ and the tile sizes and patterns that are available can be just as important as the actual raw material.

Most stones can be used in any context. But there is a big difference between a ‘honed’ (highly polished) finish and a ‘satino’ finish which has a textured, non-slip surface. The thickness of the cut stone is also very important – here, you will need to balance the strength of the stone with the amount of height it takes up. And you will need to decide whether you will be laying the stone in a simple symmetric pattern or in a complex, random pattern.

To help you focus on the best stone for your project:

• read about the different stone types on pages 4–5.

• take a look at our glossary of finishes on page 8 – some are aesthetic, some are for practical purposes.

• take a look at the different patterns on page 9. Only certain stones are available in specific patterns.

• consider the thickness of the stone you will need (these range from 1.0 to

3.0 centimetres) and the tile dimensions (which vary from 30 x 40 up to 60 x 90 centimetres.

All stones are suitable for interior use. If you are planning to use stone in an exterior setting, please look out for this symbol

Glossary of finishes

Our stones come in a range of finishes – these may be for aesthetic or practical effect. In a bathroom, for example, you may want a more textured finish for better slip resistance. If you are restoring a heritage property, an ageing process such as distressed will help you to match existing materials.

Distressed flat surface, fettered and cushioned edges, usually crafted by hand.

Etched sand-blasted finish for texture.

Honed leaves the surface smooth and flat.

Riven naturally split stone.

Satino textured surface, edges usually square.

Seasoned is a combination of tumbled and satino with rounded edges and a textured, non-slip surface.

Tumbled soft, round edges, grained surface.

Velvet the stone is sandblasted to give it a bleached, etched effect and then undergoes a satino process which gives it a tactile, velvety feel.

Vintaged textured surface with fettered edges.

Weathered hand fettered edges, open-grain surface.

Worn a smoothing process to create the effect of antique, riven flagstones.

Patterns

Products that are supplied in

‘patterns’ consist of combinations of set size flagstones, which enable you to follow classic patterns such as

French, Greek, English, Moroccan,

Irish, American and Dutch as illustrated here. This means you can lay your stone floor to these patterns without the waste associated with cutting uniform flagstones to appropriate sizes.

So, for example, one set of ‘English pattern’ consists of 13 stones, and

2.23m

2 in total.

Some of our stones are available in different widths and random lengths, so that you can choose whether to lay floors in your own free-form pattern, or in a regimented design.

And, with a little bit of planning and good technical advice, you’ll find that installation is as smooth as a lovely piece of honed limestone!

A stone that designers and architects love to use when creating contemporary schemes. This is a very hard stone that will stand up to heavy use. But the subtle silvery grey tone is clean, light and sophisticated.

Neranjo Limestone tumbled

These flagstones have a rich, warm colour reminiscent of a West Country farmhouse. The fossil and sedimentary markings mean it could easily be mistaken for an English stone. It is also very, very hard which makes it ideal for flooring.

Important note. These prices are per square metre, not per slab. With bespoke items, there can be a high proportion of wastage. Eventual costs will also include cutting, shaping and edge-finishing and this will greatly increase the price of the finished item. Your retailer or stonemason will be able to explain this in more detail.

To cut matching skirting

Imagine a skirting board that doesn’t need repainting or treating, isn’t susceptible to kicking, scuffing or damp. We can cut and hand-finish the stone you sele ct to 9cm or 12cm strips to create a beautiful stone skirting that matches your floor.

Remember, if you select a rustic style of stone or a finish such as riven, it will have a little more variation in thickness compared to stones with a honed finish, and so you may find this is not suitable for skirting.

Technical information

FIxING STONE TO FLOORS

Solid floor substrates

Generally speaking, the best floor surface to fix stone to is a sand and

cement screed. Please check with your builder that the screed is definitely sand and cement and not an anhydrous screed. Anhydrous screeds require special preparation – please contact the Technical Helpline for further information.

General preparation

If the screed is old or uneven then a certain level of preparation will be needed – please contact the

Technical Helpline for further information.

Underfloor heating

Underfloor heating works very well with stone and is highly recommended to provide that additional level of comfort.

Underfloor heating for solid floor substrates comes in two key forms: a heated screed, in which hot water pipes or electrical cables are buried; and under-tile heating, in which an electric mat or loose cables are laid over the top of the screed just under the tiles.

If your screed is heated, then you must use a proprietary decoupling

membrane between the screed and the stone – heated screeds expand and contract as the screed heats up and cools down and this lateral

movement will eventually cause the stone to crack if a decoupling membrane is not used.

Non solid floor substrates

Stone can be installed to most non solid substrates – but careful preparation is needed. Please contact the Technical Helpline for assistance.

FIxING STONE TO WALLS

When fixing stone to walls, it is a good idea to select a thinner stone.

Also a smaller format will be simpler to fit – particularly on uneven walls.

Some circumstances may require a

mechanical fixing system to be used as well as the normal stone adhesive.

Solid wall substrates

The best solid wall substrate to fix stone to is a sand and cement render.

Your builder will be able to confirm what the substrate is. Plastered walls will need scoring and priming before fixing stone.

Non solid wall substrates

The best non solid wall substrate to fix to is a proprietary tile backer board, which is specifically designed to receive tiles. A plasterboard wall may not be strong enough to support the weight of some thicker stones, while plywood can be subject to movement which makes it more challenging to receive stone.

This guidance is provided as an initial indication of factors you need to consider. You should also seek the advice of a professional tiler/installer who can give you advice based on the specific conditions on site. All substrates should be prepared in accordance with the relevant British

Standard.
