Advantages of Stone Masonry For Buildings

solid, dignified, stone masonryIf you’re considering new commercial or residential construction get some stones and go with stone masonry for your project. Stone is more durable, long lasting, and better looking then anything else out there. Use stone masonry in your new construction and don’t just build a property, but build a property of value, that will last lifetimes.

Durable, Strong, Weather Resistant

No construction material is as durable, strong, or weather resistant as stone. Stone is hardly affected by the normal day to day actions that leave wear and tear on other construction materials. You might accidentally dent a plaster wall while moving furniture. Or scratch wood, or bend vinyl. Stone does not warp, swell, bend, splinter, or dent. And to chip or scratch stone you have to try pretty hard. Stone stand up against the blows of a sledgehammer better then concrete does. And wind, rain, hail, sleet, and snow do not bother stone in the slightest.

Long Lasting

Because of its strength, durability, and ability to weather weather stone lasts for a long time. The oldest human structures still standing are made from stone masonry. If you want a construction material that will stand the tests of weather and time, you build with stone. If you want your home or place of business to be an institution that you can pass onto your children, and their children’s children, you build with stone.

Aesthetic Appeal

Stone is versatile in its aesthetic appeal and can work well with other construction materials. It can be imposing, grandiose, dignified, and impressive, but it can also be warm, welcoming and homely. However, whether you’re building an extravagant cathedral, a solid bank, or a cozy stone cottage, stone is dependable. No other construction material makes a statement like stone. One that say’s you’re here and you intend to stay.
