"You live. So you can transform it from nor Neri house into an extraordinary home. How's that? For free 'cause you know, you're listening. We charge anything about what the shows worth. Actually. Oh, well, no, I'm gonna save that for later. I've announcement for the end of the show that I think everybody's going to like. Teased a little bit more. What should I say? Should I say say say? Okay. So fishery as of. April twenty-seventh, if you look on your calendar right now, you'll notice that April twenty-seventh is a Saturday. As of April twenty-seventh home with dean, sharp, the house whisper will be on. Sundays nine to eleven but also Saturdays, right? Nearly when you're waking up to fix your house from six to eight. Six to eight Bill Handel actually taken back a little exactly that's what I'm saying. And and it's not just going to be the same show repeated two days. No, no, no, no. No, no. We don't phone it in around here. Why don't phone it in others? May know you're gonna get two separate shows per week. That is value my friend, two for the price of none. Very exciting. Right. So that starts in a couple of weeks. So yeah, we're kind of jazzed about that. So anyway. What should we do? We should do this show. That's a good idea since we're here. So we're talking about stone. And specifically today, I wanna talk to you about engineered stone. Oh, by the way, I'm gonna give out the number again. Call me about anything. I'm talking about engine. Neared manmade stones for your house today. But you call me about anything you want to talk about next segment. I'm going to take a couple of calls. If we've got a couple of calls to take eight three three to ask dean is the number to call eight three three the number to ask dean, okay? So I looked did in the first segment that one of the problems that people have with understanding the confusing world of manmade stone is the fact that we don't even understand nature Maidstone too much, and I don't wanna get too thick into it. Because John he's got a nervous trigger finger when it comes to the nerd alert button. And I do not want this to get to scienc- today. But see if we can do this without attracting his attention. I wanna talk to you about the three kinds of stone that the earth makes so that you kind of understand their performance characteristics. Let's go back. Let's go back to geology class. Right. What are the three kinds of stone? The the earth produces Ignace metamorphised sedimentary. That's right. That's right. You got it. All right. So which of these three kinds of stone. Do you not want to put on your kitchen counters? Ignace no, my friend. That's just the opposite. No, sedimentary sedimentary stone is the goes undergoes the least amount of transformation. It's basically, you know, you think of sediment, you think of of the the riverbed material or particular that over time get compressed together sandstone is the classic example of sedimentary stone. And it's a great surface to be outside. It's great to use it as pavers in your yard or anything like that. But it soft, and it scratches and it comes apart. And it doesn't take a lot of abuse. Metamorphised rock is exactly what it sounds like. It's it it is it goes through a metamorphosis, it was one thing and then one kind of mineral, and then it gets subsumed into the earth at some point and undergoes a certain amount of heat and pressure in his transformed into another kind of stone. So marble is a great example of a metamorphosed rock marble, limestone travertine? These are all metamorphised stones. Ignace is the hardest kind of stone. Ignace stone is stone that once was right on the edge or right over the line of becoming liquid hot magma guy. We're talking about the you know, when when heat and pressure builds up so much that stone becomes portable that produces a kind of crystallization a kind of glassy nece to Iraq that makes it intensely intensely. Hard granite is an Ignace stone. So just the, you know, so. We've been putting these kinds of stones. On our countertops in our bathrooms and all around the place for for years and years and years. The general rule is this the hotter. The process of production and the more pressure that was applied during production, the tougher the stone and or tile is going to be the difference between a common ceramic tile. And a porcelain tile. Porcelain is still a ceramic tile. But the particulates that make the clay that goes into it is a more refined clay first of all then the standard ceramic tile. And the porcelain undergoes a heating process that makes it glassy like in other words, it sort of pushing toward that Ignace rock stage. And that's why porcelain is harder and tougher and more durable than ceramic. Also, why generally? Speaking it costs more than ceramic tiles. So let's talk about now the transition to manmade stuff. I am I gonna do this out of out technically out of historic order. But this is how you've perceived it here in the states solid surface. Material back in nineteen sixty seven DuPont. Of course DuPont. The chemical company produced Corean Korean is what we call a solid surface countertop. It is not an engineered stone. It's doesn't count it as an engineered stone. Because it's got too many other ingredients in the soup as it were Korean is generally like thirty three percent acrylic resins and about sixty six percent natural minerals, which if you add those up thirty three and sixty that's ninety nine. So what's the other percent? Magic just fairy dust. I guess I don't know. I kept looking for the other one percent. No one tell me what that is of the. Mineral that goes into Korean is H T H, aluminum, try hydrate. So yeah, who cares? Right. I can't believe I said that one without the nerd alert going off. It is a it's a fine white powder. Think of like baking soda, right? And that is why by the way Korean doesn't really glow. It looks kinda muddy right? It doesn't have that kind of light amazing light refracting glow. That natural stones do because it's essentially made out of glue and a powder that in his natural form kind of looks like baking soda, so it's kind of muddy clay, there's a lot of resonant. Now, the resin produces some advantages number one if you're in the real custom countertop world, you can order Korean to be thermally bent radius. You can get all sorts of weird curves. And and tweaks in it because it's super pliable. Another thing about a Korean is that the seems can be matched together. Almost seamlessly mean. Once you seem together, you'd be hard pressed to actually find those seems and and one more advantage to Corean is simply the fact that you can do some pretty wild colors, but it falls completely short. If what we're talking about is emulating, real stone. No and Corean now has got some other competitors. But it's still out there. Corean avenue swan stone, these are all the same category material, solid surface materials. All right. Later in the show, we will move on with engineered stone. But coming up next Amena take your calls. And then we're going to talk about the kind of stuff that has dominating the stone.

"A good spot at the front of the queue or shout us out a question on social media instagram facebook twitter at home with dean we're talking about stone and tile today not tile stone stone and tile why well that's the alphabetical order an stone came before tile so on and talk about stoned before i talk about time and i was right in the middle of explaining the three family lease of natural stone that occur in the world just to give you a little bit better context of what you're looking at a before the break i explained sedimentary sedimentary stone is start on the surface of the earth and works its way down its layer upon layer of sediment minerals biological deposits than the end up getting a unbrotherly underneath an ancient sea somewhere and then subsumed into the earth uh where they experienced pressure and they crystallise in its things like sandstone and limestone which is basically men out of calcium fossils and travertine which is similar but has a little pitting action that happens because of a chemical reaction in the earth and then i said the second kind is ignorance and i'm and explain that to you now ignace all you have to remember that it ignores is the opposite of sedimentary in that sedimentary starts on the surface in works its way down ignace starts in the crust of the earth and works its way up up ignace stone is a formed by a liquid hot magma not lava by the way lava is what we call a magmud that actually bursts out onto the surface of the earth through a volcano or volcanic vents magma that stuff we don't see that is forming pockets of great pressure under the earth at times.
