Daltile's Danny MacNair highlighted several points about selecting the right stone at the MIA/Stone World Installer Seminar in San Leandro, CA.

MacNair promoted several key points:

- With each finish option available, know the pros and cons

- Understand that any backing on a stone will influence the materials needed for the install -know the stone's absorption rate if the stone is being used in a wet area

- The selection of larger format or mixed stones will impact installation techniques

- Presealing light color stones may be necessary when considering the pigments from the grout used

He concluded his section of the seminar by stressing the need to discuss installation techniques and care/maintenance issues during the stone selection process. Custom Building Products' Mike Micalizzi and Rod Sigman are also featured speakers.
