Amidst the rich biodiversity and tropical climate of Costa Rica, emerges a design option that has become a favorite among those seeking elegance, durability, and a natural touch in their constructions: coral stone.

This natural stone, with its timeless beauty, has found a special place in the hearts and homes of Costa Ricans, and our clients are no exception. Today, we want to share with you the advantages of using coral stone, especially for cladding in external areas.

What is Coral Stone?

Coral stone is a sedimentary rock of biological origin, mainly composed of skeletal remains of marine organisms, primarily corals and calcareous algae.

Its porous yet resilient nature makes it perfect for withstanding varied weather conditions, from heavy rain to scorching sun.

Applications of Coral Stone for Homes and Commercial Businesses

  1. Facade Cladding:

Coral stone offers an elegant and natural appearance. Thanks to its wear resistance and its ability of not holding heat, it has become a favorite choice for cladding facades in Costa Rica. Additionally, its color variations, from cream tones to darker hues, provide a wide range of aesthetic possibilities.

  1. Swimming Pools:

In the pool area, coral stone is doubly functional. It not only provides a beautiful and durable covering for edges and surrounding areas but also offers a non-slip surface, ideal for ensuring safety around wet areas.

  1. Interiors and Other Spaces:

Whether in bathrooms, kitchens, or terraces, coral stone brings a feeling of freshness and a sophisticated touch. Its unique texture can transform a common space into a personal oasis.

Benefits of Choosing Coral Stone:

  • Durability: Despite its delicate appearance, coral stone is incredibly resilient. Its longevity ensures that you won’t have to worry about frequent replacements.
  • Slip Resistance: Its porous nature makes it non-slip, which is essential in areas such as pools or bathrooms.
  • Thermal Insulation: Unlike other materials that can heat up quickly in the sun, coral stone does not retain heat, making it comfortable to touch even on the sunniest days.
  • Eco-friendly: Being a natural stone, it does not require manufacturing processes that emit CO2 or use harmful chemicals.
