Barry Kemna added a large and fully-equipped stone fabrication shop well over twenty years ago. It actually started because many of his commercial general contractors had a number of stone tops on their jobs and asked Barry if he could find a way to help them out.
Since those early beginnings, Kemna Tile has become the go-to specialists in the fabrication of Marble, Granite, Soapstone, Limestone, Slate, and Exotic Stones.
The uses for stone are virtually limitless: stairways, offices, tables, countertops, desks, kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, shelf units, fireplaces, shop fronts, floors, walls, window sills, entrances, signs, monuments, pedestals, even art pieces – and more listed below.
Did You Know This About Stone?
For fabrication purposes, there are two types of natural stone, granite, and marble.
Granite is an igneous rock containing natural quartz, feldspar, mica, and other minerals. It’s formed when molten rock (magma) slowly cools and hardens deep inside the earth. Because of geological movement in the earth’s crust, granite areas moved to the surface and formed land, mountains, and islands. The granite family also includes basalt, obsidian, and gneiss.
Marble is created when limestone, a sedimentary rock, undergoes metamorphosis under great heat and pressure. Marble is composed primarily of calcite, as well a wide variety of minerals and other material. Sedimentary rock comes from ancient shallow seas, and can include organic material and fossils. The marble-limestone family also includes travertine, slate, sandstone, soapstone, and more exotic stones like onyx.
Other than a fairly wide color range, the physical properties across different granites remain fairly consistent. However, there is a large variety of colors, hardness, strengths, and performance within the marble-limestone group.
There is a third group of stones used for fabrication – these are engineered (manufactured) stones. The primary component is natural quartz crystals bound with epoxy resins and is sometimes referred to as quartz. The addition of other minerals and materials results in a tremendous variety of colors and patterns available.
No matter what your stone material of choice is, Kemna Tile fabricates and installs it.
