REAL NATURAL STONE
Yes, it is real natural stone and as a result, it won’t fade or discolor over time. From Turkish Travertine* to Italian and Spanish Marbles, Forzastone panels feature soft colors and natural stone veins, making each truly one-of-a-kind. A natural guaranteed stone cut to 5mm** and reinforced with aluminum alloy for a total thickness of 9mm.
As always, with Xtremebath we start by taking the entire wet area to the studs. Then we install plywood around the same area (allowing the installation of grab bars and any other appliance at any future time).This is followed by installing concreteboard. The entire area is then coated with a vapor barrier called Redguard.
Forzastone panels weigh only 3lbs per square foot which allows for fast and easy installation. This also reduces transportation, labor and equipment costs. Each Forzastone panel is groutless and waterproof requiring minimal cleaning and maintenance. We always employ a team to do a one-time application of sealant to guard against water penetration for as long as you own your home. With the durability of stone, they are designed to last a lifetime.
