At Ottaviani, we specialise in paving for a variety of infrastructures, including entrance halls, retailers, reception areas, outdoor spaces, and flooring for high-end homes. We offer several types of specifically selected materials, including quality marble and granite tiles; all of which are cut and prepared in Verona by our team of expertly skilled workers. We believe that, to produce quality stone flooring, you must be diligent about your choice of materials. We are proud to have access to an unlimited selection of stone blocks, all with a minimum number of flaws. These imperfections are caused due to the presence of organic matter during the stone sedimentation process and can result in a weakened end product.
Another important consideration is the precision used during the production of stone tiles, and the application of the right treatments to make the finished product exceptionally durable and easy to maintain. We guarantee that all our stone flooring is manufactured by our skilled craftsmen and all works are carried out entirely onsite. Aside from flooring, we can also produce handcrafted parts and bespoke worktops, as well as offering premium maintenance options for your existing floors.
Granite is a natural and earthborn rock that produces an incredibly unique and exceptionally hardwearing end-product. It is formed when igneous (magmatic) or sedimentary rocks are subjected to a metamorphic process that occurs under high-pressure and high-temperature environments.
Granite can either have been created during the Earth’s formation, or more currently, due to tectonic movement. It is a valuable material for construction due to its strong and resilient nature against mechanical and chemical aggression and structural longevity. Generally, granite is found in shades ranging from black to red.
Marble is a remarkable rock formation created during the sedimentation process of limescale. This material is ideal for creating the look of more handcrafted items, as it is more flexible and malleable compared to other magmatic stones. Due to the nature of how marble is created, the cutting and styling of the material is an exceptionally important part of the process. Our experts will talk you through your choices, based on the mineral bedding of any specific marble block, to ensure the creation of an inimitable, exclusive, and elegant finished product.
We see new fashions and trends come and go frequently. New styles dictating the need for interior reworking, proposing new flooring and alternate tiling almost every year. Marble often has very distinct colouring, ranging from grey and yellow to white.
Marble and granite are natural materials that will never become unfashionable. A simple stroll through Rome, dotted with classic stonework created over 2,000 years ago, demonstrates its timeless quality.
