All natural stone can be used in a pool or fountain.
In today’s market, it's all based on sales volume; it’s safe to say that most all granite slabs come as tiles also. Also, (usually) granite tile can be special ordered. Due to the variation in the product, there could be a slight difference in shade between the tile and slab.
Slate is a natural stone and although it can flake, it can definitely be used for exterior purposes. If it's in an area with a lot of foot traffic, I would recommend gauged slate which simply means all cut to same thickness rather than ungauged which varies in thickness.
It all depends if it's for an interior or exterior surface or for walls, floors or counters. This is where Marble Fino is the right choice for all of your remodeling needs. We will help walk you through the process and assist you in selecting the best product for your needs.
-Granite is an igneous natural stone (cooled slowly in the deep upper part of the Earth’s crust) that has very high physical properties and is considered very durable in most cases. There are products sold as granite that are not geologically true granites and don’t have as good of physical properties. -Travertine is a type of limestone sedimentary natural stone that is more porous and softer but can perform very well for residential applications. It is necessary to fill the holes so dirt doesn't collect, and seal the travertine to minimize staining. Some travertines have fewer holes and are more dense than others. -Porcelain Ceramic Tile is a clay based material that is very durable and can exceed the physical properties of granite; it is impervious but can stain. It can also have a glaze surface to make it more stain resistant. With current technology, porcelain ceramic tile can do a good job of imitating at natural stone look. -Ceramic tile is a mixture of clays and other natural materials. The special clays are mined from the earth, shaped, colored and then fired in kilns. Traditional ceramic tile can be naturally colored and left unglazed like terra cotta or they can feature colored or highly designed surfaces which can be glazed (finished with a glass surface) either in a high gloss or matte finish. Most ceramic tile has either a white or red body coloration underneath the glazed, colored top layer.

Care and Maintenance:

Yes, germs will settle on a granite counter if not cleaned properly with a recommended granite cleaner. You should have no problem if you use a granite cleaner and wipe your counter daily.
Yes, with grout of your choice.
Yes, sealing your grout will allow you time to clean up before any discoloration happens.
Sealing adds a protective top coat that gives you time to react to emergencies such as spills which may potentially discolor the stone. Enhancing a stone brings out the natural colors of some stones.
This is difficult to answer as it all depends how often the area is used. Usually, in a heavy traffic area, sealing should be done every other year if not every 3 - 4 years. There are several variables that affect this timeframe: 1. The type of stone and its porosity, 2. The traffic or how often used, 3. How often you clean your floor, 4. The type of sealer that has been used previously.
All stone should always be sealed to maintain its natural look. This should be done every other year.
Seal the product and make sure that you wipe it down daily with simple hot water.
