When building any home, many times a final decision on certain elements comes down to cost. While there are many ways to save on the price of the building, decorating, or renovating a residence, features that offer structural protection and aesthetic properties are worth the extra investment. One place where that’s apparent is window sills.
What’s in a Window Sill?
Although the type of windows you install goes a long way toward enhancing indoor comfort and energy savings, don’t overlook the material that protects the space around them. Traditionally, wood is used in window casings and sills. However, wood tends to warp and age badly, and it requires a lot of upkeep. Vinyl or aluminum became popular due to their easier maintenance and affordability. Nowadays, construction or design professionals and homeowners alike are rediscovering the benefits of marble, granite, and natural stone.
Natural stone and marble are meant to withstand the rigors of weather and temperatures. One needs only to look at mountains and monuments around the world for proof. Due to the wide variability of color and pattern, they work with decors ranging from traditional to ultra-modern for every color pallet. They also offer superior protection from moisture and insect infestations while needing very little maintenance.
The best way to save on the cost of these luxury materials is to buy them in bulk at wholesale prices from Stonexchange. Here are our top five sellers:
