All our outdoor finishes are suitable for your terrace or garden path/garage driveway. Different formats and a large number of laying styles are possible. The choice will be influenced by the desired effect but also by your budget.

Our advice: Allow for a thickness of 3 cm for vehicle-free areas (terrace) and 5 cm for areas with light vehicle traffic (driveway, pavement).

To avoid slipping on rainy days or during snowfall, special attention must be paid to your choice of finish for your outdoor steps. Textured finishes are inherently non-slip. However, if you prefer a different finish, simply order anti-slip strips elegantly chiselled into the stone.

Our advice: In a garden, a slope can be transformed into a feature. By creating Belgian Blue Stone steps, you create perspectives in your garden.

Recommended finishes: all finishes suitable for outdoor use.

The façade is the calling card of your house, and a cladding or a substructure in Belgian Blue Stone gives it a real personality. Elegantly combined with other materials, the Milled, Natura and Flamed finishes are the most common.

Our clivoDECOR veneers are another solution. These veneers reflect light and give your building a lustre and shine. Particularly adapted to current construction methods, they can be installed without joints and can even be glued to insulation.

Our advice: If you opt for a façade rendering or plaster, consider a substructure in Belgian Blue Stone. It will protect your home against damp.
