There is something classic and timeless about stone finishes. Many people love the look of natural stone, for things like patios, flooring, hardscapes, and outdoor decor. However, there are great ways to get the natural stone look without the hassle, and DecoArmor is a fantastic alternative. If you are a DecoArmor Designs franchise owner, or are considering joining the team, it’s important that you know what makes our products different from real stone.
Compared to natural stone, DecoArmor surface materials have many wonderful advantages. Here are some of the main differences to know:
It’s more durable
Stone can be quite fragile, and can easily crack or chip. And when it’s used for flooring, it can show a lot of wear and tear over time. However, DecoArmor is made from polyurea, the same man-made polymer that is used in truck beds and military vehicles!
It’s much lighter
Natural stone is known for being extremely heavy, and this contributes to higher manufacturing costs, higher shipping costs, and higher incidents of accidents or injuries during installation. Stone can be difficult to maneuver, but DecoArmor weighs very little in comparison. DecoArmor is easy to ship, move, and work with!
It’s less costly
Many stone finishes are quite expensive, especially more exotic stone slabs. DecoArmor is a cost-effective solution, delivering a beautiful stone-like finish without breaking the bank.
It’s low maintenance
Some stone products require sanding, sealing, and other maintenance, not to mention repairs when chips and divots happen. But DecoArmor saves you the time and hassle of all that maintenance!
It’s safe and hygienic
Like most things found in nature, stone is porous and can have microscopic sharp edges that can harbor dirt, bacteria, mold, and other hazards. If your customers are concerned about health and safety, DecoArmor is a much better choice. Ours is a closed-cell material that is resistant to moisture and mold, and won’t hold on to viruses and other germs. It’s easy to clean too!
Choosing between natural stone and DecoArmor surface material is simple, when you know the facts. If you want to make a name for yourself, selling this superior product, reach out to us and ask about our franchise opportunities!
