Transylvania, which means the land beyond the forest, is surrounded by the rugged Carpathian Mountains and is also the birthplace of Dracula. The character of this ancient land is reflected in the gray limestone quarried from its mountains. Once blue coral beds on the subfloor of the ocean is now cut to form surface coverings. From the quarries of Transylvania, we import and stock many various forms of this limestone such as stone cladding, natural stone tile and pool copings.  Cut-to-size projects are our specialty.  This stone flooring is extremely resilient and can be used in residential as well as commercial projects.
