 — What sets us apart from other natural stone suppliers in Calgary —

35+ years experience:
+ We are a locally owned business that has served the Calgary area, and the B.C. interior for over 35 years. Over that time, we’ve built an excellent reputation by ensuring rock solid reliability.

3cm thick stone slabs:

+ The stone slabs we use are 3cm thick (approximately 1 1/4 inches); which is 50% thicker, and more than two times stronger than the standard 2cm slabs offered by some stone suppliers. The thicker stone allows for greater design flexibility, and substantially reduces the likelihood of breakage.

You inspect your stone slab prior to cutting:

+ Unlike many other stone suppliers, our customers don’t have to special order their slabs, sight unseen. They don’t have to order from a sample… and then have to take what comes. We offer a huge inventory of stone at our Calgary store; stocked and ready for viewing and approval. Choosing your stone directly on-site, rather than from a sample, means you’ll get exactly the stone you want.

We diamond polish front profile edges to ensure a permanent shine that matches the slab face:

+ We take the time to wet-polish the finished profile edges with successively finer grit diamond pads, providing a durable shine to the edges that matches the polished surface the slab has from the factory. *We don’t do ‘quick waxing’, which looks shiny, but wears off in no time at all.

We polish out machining ridges by hand:

+ Our high-tech CNC machines finish the countertop edges perfectly straight and even, but leave fine machining lines on the profile; we take the time to polish these lines out ‘by hand’. *Many suppliers do not take care of this detail.

We provide the strongest under-mount sink reinforcement around:
+ We install a stainless steel bar insert into the stone, along the vulnerable front kitchen sink edge. We also install a wire cradle under the sink itself (where cabinet and sink design allow), to add support for the sink, which becomes heavy when filled.

Our skilled tradesmen do all the manufacturing and installation work:

+ We don’t use subcontractors; we prefer to have our people do the work, utilizing consistent methods that meet our high standards. We train our tradesmen to follow ‘best practices’, and we guarantee our service and installation work.

Full one-year warranty, with highly trained service technicians always available:

+ We have a 35+ year history in the Calgary stone business… we’ll be here when you need us.

Accurate on-site templating using the very best digital laser:

+ We use a high-tech and highly accurate method of measuring, which pinpoints several points along the walls, and creates a drawing that precisely matches the space, so the finished countertops will fit beautifully.

Highly specialized up-to-date equipment, which result in the best finishes:

+ We use CNC (Computer Numeric Controlled) technology, which produces significantly more accurate results. You’ll notice the difference from hand-tooling and by-eye methods, which have ripples and are not nearly as precise as the perfectly straight, smooth edges of machine manufactured.

With Dauter Stone you are working with natural stone experts, and  buying directly from the source. 

+ Dauter Stone offers so much more than ‘middlemen’ retailers and box stores. When working with us, you are dealing directly with the supplier; we have the stock, the equipment, the knowledge, the experience, the personnel, and the time to help you with every detail. We are experts when it comes to natural stone products, and we will ensure that you are properly looked after in all aspects… including costs.

GRANITE (& NATURAL QUARTZITE)

Natural granite belongs to the family igneous rocks. It is acid-resistant which is one of the reasons it is an excellent counter surface. Granite is composed mainly of feldspar and quartz, with minor amounts of micas, such as muscovite and biotite. It is dense, heavy and hard, giving it the qualities of strength, durability and scratch-resistance. Granite is also heat and stain resistant. Granite comes in a wide variety of colours and patterns.

Natural quartzite is similar, but is comprised of more quartz and less micas. It also has less patterning and texture than granite and looks more like marbles. For durability and practicality, it is equal to granite. Both these types of stone are ideal for countertops in any part of the home or commercial settings as well as fireplaces, flooring, outdoor use or cladding.

MARBLE (& TRAVERTINE & LIMESTONE)

Marble and travertine are unique and beautiful natural stones characterized by veining. They are sedimentary rocks composed primarily of calcite. Travertine has holes in the stone which are filled by cementious grout and/or resin, and this gives the stone a special character.

Limestone is characterized by fossils. Dauter Stone carries beige and grey Jura limestone which originates in southern Germany. It is believed to date from the Jurassic period and contains many beautiful fossils throughout.

These types of stone are sensitive to anything acidic and therefore are not recommended for kitchen use. They are suitable for countertops in bathrooms or as desk tops, fireplace facades, flooring and cladding.

SOAPSTONE

Soapstone is a metamorphic rock, composed largely of talc, which gives it the soapy feel, as well as chlorite, dolomite and magnetite. It is very dense and inert to acids and alkalis, making it a good counter surface. It is used commonly in laboratories.  It is quite soft which makes it a good medium for carving and sculpture. Though it scratches easily, the scratches become quickly invisible with oiling. It can also be lightly sanded with 80-grade sandpaper. Soapstone is usually grey in colour, with some spots and patterning and occasional light or dark veins. It is recommended for countertops in any area, custom sinks, indoor or outdoor, or for fireplaces, boxes as well as facades.

QUARTZ (ENGINEERED)

This is a man-made solid surface product comprised of over 90% ground natural quartzite mixed in a resin base and poured into molds to form slabs. There are numerous brand names, all virtually indistinguishable in terms of performance and appearance. Dauter Stone carries Silestone and many other brands such as Caesarstone, Vicostone, Hanstone, LG, Geos and others can be special ordered.

Engineered quartz is absolutely consistent in colouration and textural variations throughout each slab, and is therefore popular for decorating schemes where a plain, untextured surface is desired. It is suitable for indoor use as countertop in any home area.

DEKTON

Dekton is the latest and most high-tech new product available in slabs for countertops, already available at Dauter Stone! It is a man-made, but does not contain the resin component of engineered quartzes. It is made of natural quartz combined with elements of glass and porcelain, fused in a unique process called “sinterizing”. Because it has no resin, it exceeds engineered quartz in heat resistance, hardness, density (less porous) and UV resistance. Therefore it can be used for countertop in any area, fireplace facades, flooring, cladding and outdoor applications.
