There are many different ways for people to enhance their properties today. Stone cladding is definitely an option that should be considered if you’re looking to create a wow factor. From creating an interior stone wall to using exterior stone cladding panels to enhance the exterior of your property; the options are endless. Here is our quick guide to natural stone panelling and how it can be used to its best effect.
What is stone cladding / panelling?
Natural stone cladding or panelling is a thin layer of stone, which is used as a cladding for the exterior of a structure. However, it can sometimes be used in internal structures, for three-dimensional, textured appearance, which gives the appearance that the entire structure has been created using natural stone, rather than merely a thin layer.
In what instances could stone cladding be used?
Stone cladding is used in a number of different ways. Of course, the main aim is to give a stone finish to an existing structure. However, it is also used to achieve the following...
- To lower waste
- To enable off-site manufacturing, with a lower amount of on-site construction
- To enable the use of high-performance detailing and modern construction techniques yet with a traditional appearance
- To enable lower cost and faster installation
- To create a stone finish at a lower weight, meaning there are not as many structural support requirements
What are some examples of common uses of stone cladded walls?
There are a lot of great examples of natural stone cladding. This can be used in both a residential and commercial environment. There are many properties that have been covered in stone cladding to give the appearance of a more traditional UK property. However, you will also find that stone cladding has been used increasingly inside of homes, especially as feature walls have become more popular. An exposed stone wall can make a real style statement in your property.
What are the benefits of this particular design choice?
A lot of people assume that the only benefits associated with stone cladding are appearance-based. However, this could not be further from the truth. Yes, it is a beautiful design choice. But it is much more than this. It is also cost efficient because it is quicker to install and easier to transport. Plus, there are not as many structural support requirements, as you are only going to be adding a thin layer of natural support. This makes the job a lot easier and more cost efficient as well. All of this has a positive impact on the environment too.
