What is the Best Stone for an Exterior Stone Staircase?
Both engineered stones and natural stones are ideal materials for a staircase, but some stones provide more function than others depending on the stairway location. For an exterior stone staircase, there are more considerations to consider than just aesthetics, as external stairs must withstand extreme outdoor elements even if the area is undercover.
Hence, natural stones are much more suited as an exterior staircase since natural stone is constructed by nature and holds well when in direct contact with the weather.
Most significantly, natural stones are porous materials, especially when they are not sealed or waterproof, which makes these types of stones perfect for outdoor conditions. For example, when raining, the stone will absorb water, ensuring people do not slip when using the stairs.
Granite and marble are the most popular choice for an exterior stone staircase as they are highly resilient and durable for high levels of foot traffic. Therefore, they can often last decades with very little maintenance. Uniquely, natural stones hold ultraviolet (UV) resistance, which minimises the risk of these stairs breaking down over time due to prolonged sun exposure and ensures bare feet are less likely to get burnt.
While steppingstones give your garden an organic appeal, outdoor spiral stone stairs, floating staircases, single stone treads and stone doorsteps are more functional, offering an elegant and sleek finish that complements modern homes.
What is the Best Stone for an Interior Stone Staircase?
There are fewer factors to consider for an interior stone staircase since houses are controlled environments, so the possibilities for your indoor stone staircase are pretty much endless, as both engineered stones and natural stones are ideal materials for interior staircases.
At Made in Stone, you can choose from hundreds of colours and styles of engineered stones or natural stones for your indoor stone staircase.
Engineered stones are carefully tailored to ensure the material can withstand the intense everyday foot traffic a stone staircase receives. Most types of engineered stones offer high durability and great hygienic qualities, such as water, heat and stain resistance, as well as being easy to clean surfaces that do not require much ongoing maintenance or re-sealing.
You can choose from two types of engineered stone products, either quartz-based or porcelain-based.
Quartz-based engineered stones contain 90-93% natural forming quartz, which is the hardest natural material on earth! At Made in Stone, the quartz products we sell includes Caesarstone, YDL Quartz, Silestone and Smartstone. Quartz stone is a tough, non-porous, long-lasting, and visually attractive benchtop that requires little upkeep.
Or choose porcelain-based engineered stones which are constructed from powdered clay and coloured pigment. Porcelain stone is a denser, less porous and more durable stone than quartz. At Made in Stone, we sell Dekton, which is the most popular type of porcelain stone in the industry, and it is very resistant to heat, stains, UV, scratches, abrasion and freezing.
On the other hand, natural stone is another ideal stone staircase pick for luxury and high-end homes wanting a one-of-a-kind feature piece in their home. All types of natural stone will suit any stone staircase application, form spiral stone stairs, floating staircases, single stone treads and stone doorsteps. But particularly granite and marble are the most popular choices due to their sturdy qualities and opulent appearances.
How Much Does a Stone Staircase Cost?
The cost of a stone staircase varies widely depending on the stone itself and the intensity of the staircase construction.
The cost of a stone staircase is mainly determined by the procedure involved in preparing it for installation. For example, the length of the staircase and the width of the stairs will add to the overall stone staircase cost.
Generally, for initial stone prices, there are 4-5 distinct cost levels within any stone brand, ranging from a “regular” collection to a “deluxe” or “exclusive” collection. But in addition, the stone’s rarity, thickness, colour, popularity, manufacturing methods and shipping costs are all variables that make some final stone staircases more costly than others.
Plus, despite popular belief, some varieties of natural stone can be less expensive than engineered stones! So, it pays to shop around before making your final stone staircase decision. At Made in Stone, we offer many stone staircase products to suit all budgets!
