Natural stone walls make any building look unique and beautiful, but especially residential buildings. Stone has been used as a building material with applications such as stone cladding for hundreds of years and many buildings made from it are still standing today, proving its worth and durability. However, these days there are more technologically advanced ways of cutting stone so that the finish is even more attractive.
For instance, stone can be cut into blocks or bricks that make it much easier and quicker to build with as well as giving a different look and appeal from years ago. The tools that are used these days to cut stone don’t depend on muscle power like they used to and they are made of stronger materials as well, so the job of cutting stone can go ahead more quickly and efficiently, offering a cost effective solution for your building.
There are different types of accessories that can be used to enhance your natural stone walls.
- Gothic windowsill – a favourite that will add a wonderful perspective to your walls and your home.
- Bullnose window – the rounded convex trim enhances the window. Rounded edges prevents wearing or erosion of a sharp edge.
- 2-course splayed corbelling – an extension of two rows of limestone bricks out from the face of the wall.
