Diversity of construction materials

Luckily, the era of faceless grey buildings, of concrete monsters and panel multiples is in the past. The economic booms and state-of-the-art designs contributed to the use of new materials in construction. Now the focus is placed on quality, ergonomics and aesthetical properties of decoratory materials. Urban sky-scrapers are still erected in the “hi-tech” style and from light materials, but hotels and business centres do have a trend towards monumentality, solidity and even luxuriousness.

Prestige value and elitism of any buidling will see a manifold increase once it be decorated with natural stone – granite or marble. Experts have declared that a building decorated with natural stone – granite or marble – does, in terms of its parameters and decoration design, excel the class A level and correspond to most perfectionist demands of elite businesses.

You can hardly think of a material which would better combine chastity and flamboyancy, durability and fineness. Those building decorated with natural stone do have their own inimitable “face”. Not without reason did Russian emperor Peter I dressed his capital Saint-Petersburg in granite. And the famous Moscow subway stations, acknowledged the most handsome in the world, inspire foreigners of course not by the newer “tile” stations outside the central ring – but by the oldest stations of unique design, with no recurring detail anywhere. If you consider the number of foots walking everyday across the platforms and passages of those subway stations, you might easily realise the durability and solidity of the natural stone used for the construction. “A cheapskate pays twice” – the proverb emphasises the fact that anything constructed from cheap materials need constant maintenance and repair. And thousands of buildings all over the world fronted with granite or marble have not changed their appearance during several centuries. And that is why solid stone is used for their restoration as well.

Still, natural stone is an important part of decoration not only in municipal buildings, shore-drives or bridges. It is of no less importance in private construction. In this case granite, marble and other types of natural stone are not only decoratory materials, but also a symbol of well-being, prosperity, soundness and solidity. There are more and more private houses decorated with natural stone both inside and outside year after year. And it is not surprising, because provided the builders have complied with the technology requirements, the life of the stone facework is practically infinite. Isakidis Granites company focuses not only on façade facework, but also on inside decoration, offering splendid columns, staircases, fire-places, window-sills, desktops and many other products from natural stone. The warmness of the stone, its practicality will make any house or apartment inimitable and individual, by introducing a deal of antique charm.

Разнообразие строительных материалов

К счастью, давно миновала пора безликих серых построек, бетонных монстров и панельных близнецов. Мощный рост экономики, новейшие разработки – все это сказалось на применяемых в строительстве материалах. Акценты смещаются в сторону качества, эргономичности, эстетики отделочных материалов. И если небоскребы городов возводятся в стиле хайтек, в основном, из легких материалов, то вот гостиницы и бизнес-центры тяготеют к монументальности, прочности и даже роскоши.
