Do you know of any products that can help the environment, cut down on waste and beautify your home at the same time? If not, then you haven’t been introduced to Go-Stone yet. It is a new type of manufactured stone that has been designed specifically for the DIY enthusiast.
If you were to try installing a new natural stone fireplace or even a backsplash for your counter, you would need to have a professional do the work. The weight and cost of the material makes it too difficult for amateurs to mess with. Manufactured stone is much easier to work with and can be used in many DIY projects but for best results it is still better to leave it to the professionals. Go-Stone is different. A few minutes of hands on time with Go-Stone and most DIY enthusiasts could be deep into their first project. What makes it different?
- Go-Stone is about half the weight of the other materials. So, it can be held to the wall with basic tile adhesive. No special tools or compounds are needed.
- It is extremely safe for the environment because it is made from 87% recycled materials.
- You don’t need any specific training, tools or years of knowledge in masonry to do a top notch job with Go-Stone. No joints or mortar is needed to have professional looking results on your own.
The really amazing thing about Go-Stone is that it is indistinguishable from natural stone, yet it is created from crumbled rubber. Specifically, recycled tire rubber. So for every five square feet of Go-Stone produced, a twelve pound tire is prevented from going to the landfill. That may not sound like a big deal until you think about these statistics. Over 200 million tires are thrown out in the United States per year. Of those, about 78% are illegally dumped or taken to a landfill. So, the next time you want to improve your home the easy way, use Go-Stone and improve the environment while you’re at it.
