friendship founded on business is a good deal better than a business
founded on friendship.

The following finishes are available as
standard from Progressive Stone. Other custom finishes can be
produced on a special order basis. Progressive Stone provides over 500
color and finish combinations for you to choose from.
The Polished finish is a highly
reflective, mirror gloss finish. The full color, depth and crystal
structure of the stone is visible. A polished finish seals surface pores
and is, therefore, nearly impervious to weather and chemical wear.
A smooth, satin surface without
reflection, the Honed finish shows the full color of the stone. It is
produced on the same equipment as the polished finishes; however, the
honing process ends prior to the buffing stage.
The Thermal finish is produced by
applying a high-temperature flame to the surface of the stone. This flame
fractures crystals on the face, leaving a rough-textured finish. Highly
skid-resistant, this finish is an excellent choice for walking surfaces.
Water jet treatment to enhance the color and appearance of
the stone. Highly recommended on darker granite colors.
