Natural stone remnants for home improvement projects
With over 9,000 square feet of available natural stone remnants in stock, Tithof Tile & Marble has countless options for your smaller scale home improvement projects. The ability to pre-source remnants on our Northbrook or Kenosha showroom monitors makes selecting remnants by color, size or shape very easy. That being said nothing beats seeing stone in person…if preferred customers are always welcome to our Wisconsin fabrication facility to view the physical remnants.
What is a natural stone remnant?
The buyers at Tithof and other wholesale importers go to quarries around the world and hand select materials, theses are typically in the form of huge blocks or already cut into slabs. The slabs are then shipped to us and available to our customers for large projects. Though many choose to use granite, marble or quartz to create the master bath or kitchen of their dreams, these tend to be large-sized pieces of stone and require full slab purchases. Remnants essentially are the leftovers of these larger slabs of stone, pieces that were cut off and not used in the creation of counters, backsplashes or any other home reno project.
When a fabricator orders stone slabs for a specific project, it must be ordered in full slab increments of approximately 60 sq. feet per slab, we as the fabricator pay for the entire amount ordered. As the granite, marble, quartz, etc. is installed, and cut to size; the slabs leftover are put back into inventory as remnants for resale.
