The Necessity of It All
Let’s talk about the necessity of natural stone window sills. Stonexchange, a natural stone window sill manufacturer and supplier in South Florida, knows all too well about the need for marble window sills. They keep water from seeping in through windows that could damage your drywall causing mold build-up and health issues. While a window sill of any type of material like wood or vinyl will do, it’s important to consider the longevity of each one. For instance:
- Wood – Over a period of time, even treated wood is going to rot and attract bugs, critters, termites, and other unwanted pests. Wood is also very sensitive to water. So placing any kind of container with condensation will leave an unwanted watermark. The result is usually covering it up with paint, but even then, that eventually peels and chips leaving about another hazard if there’s small children. This could also be a liability if this is a public dwelling.
- Vinyl – Vinyl is a little better because it’s lighter and comes in a variety of colors that won’t strip, peel, or chip off. The disadvantage is that vinyl does tear, and if it endures enough harsh conditions, even dent. Long story short, vinyl will also need replacing at some point.
- Natural Stone – Now, this is a winner for all dwellings because natural stone window sills will last a lifetime. It’s a great selling feature because buyers want to always be reassured that they are getting their money’s worth, and nothing reassures that than a marble or travertine window sills. These types of window sills won’t tear, bend, or fold. Its beautiful unique veining patterns will never need a coat of paint.
