Amarillo residents learned of this via a story covered by News Channel 10:

As mentioned above, some of the most unique design features come in the form of natural stone flooring. There are some good reasons for this. Natural stone flooring is cool and is often found in areas, such as Amarillo, where it is hot. Natural stone flooring is unique, the materials never repeating themselves, thus making them truly one-of-a-kind. And, of course, stone flooring is timeless; one of the oldest known flooring materials used all over the world for ages.

These are just a few of the many reasons that so many public buildings, fine homes, and businesses choose natural stone flooring. Even so, while stone flooring is popular, it does have one drawback. That drawback is that natural stone floors have to be installed using very specific techniques. Setting down a stone floor is unlike setting down any other type of flooring system. For this reason, only professionals, who have both experience and expertise, should be hired for these installations.

The good news is residents of Amarillo can find such professionals at Gowdy Flooring.
