NATURAL STONE: Uniqueness and authenticity
Marble, stone and granite have unique features, whose essence have been shaped over the millennia, thanks to a natural geological process. This uniqueness gives your living space an unmatched originality.
- AESTHETIC FEATURES
1.1 Every single product is of natural origin, with different features from slab to slab, bringing unique, irreproducible and unpredictable features.
1.2 The color and grain variation tolerances are very wide and not always strictly represented by the samples provided. Consequently, differences in tone and veins, between the samples and the actual supply are meant to be considered natural and intrinsic peculiarities of the product.
1.3 Presence of micro-porosities, as well as that of natural cracks, are to be considered features of the product.
1.4 Any porosity with a diameter greater than 1.5 / 2 mm may be grouted, if requested during the estimate phase.
1.5 Before the packaging of any marble good, a set of photo of the products inspection will be shared and, once accepted, it will be impossible to take into consideration any modification and/or dispute and claim.
- FABRICATION AND FINISH
2.1. The glossy and polished finish is provided with a very light bevel. The request for the absence of bevel must be expressly communicated into the order confirmation.
2.2 Polished floors should preferably be ultimately polished on site, by a professional installer.
2.3 In case of honed finish, please be aware this is achieved through a patented process that eliminates the weakest marble parts, and then the surface is properly brushed. In this way, marble gets an old-fashioned effect, with a wavy and matt surface that reproduces exactly the effect of a natural wearing effect of time, without losing its vibrant brightness. The particular manufacturing of these products can lead to some breaks or chips that cannot be contestable.
2.4 Solid carving:
2.4.1. Our products are obtained, through craftsmanship cut, from entire blocks of stone.
2.4.2. Each single piece can present veins, differences in shades, mineral intrusions, depressions, grouting due to the natural characteristics of the marble. These features are confirmation of the use of natural material, therefore not a matter of claim.
- TECHNICAL FEATURES
3.1. Being a natural material, the stone tends to absorb. The request of using a hydro / oil repellent treatment must be specifically demanded before the start of fabrication.
3.2 In case of an anti-slip surface request, make sure this is expressly written into the bidding phase and order description. This treatment will make the surface rough and opaque.
3.3 Size tolerance on sizes and thickness +/- 2 mm+/- 2 mm
3.4 The thickness of all our inlays is 2 cm and it is achieved by a 1+1 solution: the pieces that compose the pattern, which are 1 cm thick, are glued on a slab, which is 1 cm thick too, in order to get a better endurance during the re-polishing on site and a longer durability.
3.5 Crates must be stored in a roofed and covered place.
4.1 Decormarmi: all prices and quantities will be verified during the development of the shop drawings.
4.2 Kreoo: the collection is composed by a modular system, able to create infinite combinations. For this reason, tiles are provided in modules requiring to be adapted on site, by a professional installer. Any customized requests will be considered nonstandard and their price will be calculated separately.
4.3 Prices DON’T include
4.3.1. VAT and taxes;
4.3.2 Transportation fee ;
4.3.3 Installation ;
4.3.4 Drain, syphons and/or any plumbing feature.

- KREOO LIVING AND BATHROOM COLLECTIONS
14.1 Kreoo products are handcrafted pieces result of an artisanal process, made using solid larch wood; any split or fissure of the wood has to be considered an added value and not a defect, since this is natural material, therefore subject to weather and environmental conditions.
14.2 In case of an outdoor application of Kreoo wood products, Kreoo recommends a 6 months maintenance and care and an adequate covering cap during the coldest time of the year and roofed to protect the goods from solar rays.
