What is Sandstone Cladding?
Sandstone cladding is a layer of sandstone applied to an exterior or interior wall, to create a stone feature wall. Sandstone is quarried and then cut to a thickness of between 30-100mm to create sandstone cladding. When installed correctly sandstone wall cladding can have the same appearance as a solid sandstone walls. Using sandstone cladding can significantly reduces stone weight and cost.
How is Stone Cladding Installed?
Stone cladding is typically used to dress a brick, block or concrete walls. The cladding is affixed to the surface using speciality glues, mechanical fixtures or specially designed stainless steel pin that are fixed into both the wall and the stone cladding to support the weight of the stones.
Skilled and Correct Installation is Key
Working with a stone cladding specialist, who will skilfully and carefully install your stone is key to achieving a spectacular and long lasting stone wall.
Stones needs to be carefully selected, cut and dressed to achieve a balanced arrangement of stone sizes, shapes, colours, good bond (joint) position and consistency.
