Services

Norwood Marble & Granite has been providing residential and commercial durable surface products for over 23 years and has specialized in fabricating and installing "Green" countertops, walls and floors for nine years, to include IceStone, the only durable surface in the world Certified Cradle to Cradle Gold. IceStone does not contain any toxic substances. IceStone durable surfaces are an excellent green choice for kitchen or pantry countertops, backsplashes, bathrooms, laundry rooms, tabletops, fireplace surrounds, flooring, conference tables, reception areas, transaction areas, bar tops, outdoor kitchens and any other surface where stone could be used. IceStone is UV proof. IceStone surfaces are created from 100% recycled glass, mixed with a cement binder to create a highly durable and aesthetically beautiful surface that is considered a high performance concrete product. IceStone is as hard as granite and is twice the strength of marble yielding a long product life cycle. IceStone surfaces come in a wide variety of colors including neutrals, earth tones, vibrant and playful hues all of which are suitable for both commercial and residential installations. Custom colors can be created for large projects. IceStone is often selected for not only its integrity, but its ability to help a project obtain LEED certification, for which IceStone can contribute up to 7 LEED points. IceStone also has achieved NSF 51 Certification, which designates the product as suitable for use in food service areas. Norwood Marble & Granite focuses on green manufacturing and was recently approved as a Certified B Corporation.

Norwood Marble & Granite (NMG) has always emphasized a positive environmental impact in every aspect of its operations. From mandatory water and waste recycling, to providing extraordinary care and concern for employees, NMG has been a leader in the industry. NMG's recent approval as a Certified B Corporation was an especially reflective moment for all of NMG's 45 employees. For many years, NMG was the first and only DC area construction related company to closely embrace and strongly encourage the use of IceStone as the preferred green product for durable surfaces. Taking millions of pounds of needless impervious products like glass from the waste stream, and creating beautiful residential and commercial construction surfaces, has been a central mission and goal for NMG's green building activities. In addition, NMG has worked closely to support hundreds of Architects during all phases of hundreds of LEED certified commercial projects, and now residential LEED certified projects.
