CLASSIC TECHNIQUE

We are on the shortlist of installers that float walls and floors with mud work (a portland and sand mix).

The advantage to this is on walls and floors we can achieve plumb, level and square substrates.

MODERN

We utilize as much new tech as possible to help mitigate common installation problems like efflorescence, cracking of tile and grout, and grout discoloration.

Michael P. Homeowner

Absolutely the best!
I hired Joseph Locks of Habilis to repair my home after hurricane Harvey… Hiring Joe was the best decision I could have possibly made. From the moment I called Joe the day after the storm – he drove right over to survey the damage despite the fact that he was literally on his way out of town on vacation – all the way through the final touches, Joe went far above and beyond anything I would expect from even the best of contractors. In addition to his overall commitment, he and his team were extremely professional, trustworthy and they were even punctual – I did not have to wait for one of them to arrive even a single time. In the end, the work was finished quickly and was of extremely high quality – my house is beautiful again!!! So if you have the opportunity to hire Joe, just do it.”

Erin S. Stetzer Builders

Answers of authority FAQ

What is the difference between natural stone and engineered stone?

Natural stone is a product of nature, mined directly from the earth, and then cut into slabs or tiles. Each piece is unique in its appearance, characterized by distinct variations in color, texture, and pattern. Examples include granite, marble, limestone, and travertine. On the other hand, engineered stone, commonly referred to as quartz, is man-made. It’s composed primarily of natural minerals bonded with resin. This fabrication process allows for a broader range of colors and patterns, many of which can mimic the appearance of natural stones.

Which is better, natural stone or engineered stone?

The choice between natural and engineered stone depends on individual preferences and the specific requirements of a project. Natural stone is prized for its unique beauty and character, bringing a touch of nature into a home. However, it may require more maintenance and can be porous, making it susceptible to stains. Engineered stone, meanwhile, offers more consistent patterns and often has better resistance to staining, scratching, and heat due to its non-porous nature. Both have their merits, and the decision often hinges on aesthetic preferences, intended use, and maintenance considerations.

What are the benefits of natural stone?

Natural stone boasts several advantages in luxury home remodeling. Its unique patterns and textures ensure that no two installations are ever identical, providing homeowners with a one-of-a-kind design. Natural stone is also durable, often lasting a lifetime with proper care. It can add significant value to a property due to its luxurious and timeless appeal. Additionally, being a product of the earth, natural stone is eco-friendly, biodegradable, and offers a sense of connection to the natural world, enhancing the ambiance of any living space.
