You can save up to 80 percent off the normal retail price by using stone remnants for your home projects. It's even possible to find remnant pieces for practically nothing. The Habitat for Humanity Concrete Cutting Wire, has slabs for as little as a dollar. Of course you still need to spend time cutting and polishing the stone to fit your particular project, but the material price can be almost non-existent when you use a remnant.


The biggest Wire Sawing drawback to using remnant pieces of stone is the difficulty in finding something specific. For large projects, you will have a hard time finding a remnant in a particular color that works. The same goes for your color selection. If you want a rare colored stone for your new bath vanity, you are better off using a whole new slab. Just be prepared to pay big bucks for it.
