Stone Cladding Features & Benefits
Stone cladding has become a favourite of architects and designers due to its distinctive and bold appearance. Not only is it highly durable, but it requires minimal maintenance, so your installation will look great for years to come with minimal cleaning!
Stone weathers naturally over time, and it only gets better with age. Featuring beautiful veining and variations in colour throughout the panels, a stone cladding installation is a striking addition to any property.
Unique Appearance Stone wall cladding creates a feature that will truly make your property stand out, no matter where or how it is used!
Naturally Sourced Materials Our stone cladding range is produced using natural stone, with options such as slate, sandstone, and porcelain to choose from.
Easy to Maintain Stone is one of the easiest materials to maintain due to its durability. All it needs is a simple clean of any built-up dirt!
Wide Variety of Styles We offer two stone wall cladding ranges in a wide range of different colours to suit any property.
Stone Cladding Technical Specification
Our stone cladding range features two different types of cladding: Stone Panel Systems, which are manufactured using all-natural stone such as sandstone and slate, and DesignClad, a luxurious porcelain range for modern installations.
We supply grout for our paving range in a variety of colours. Be sure to check out our grout compatibility guide to ensure that you are using the correct grout colour for your cladding colour!
If your stone cladding is supplied unsealed, we recommend sealing the stone before installation. This will help to prevent staining and will keep the stone in better condition for longer.
Natural stone products can sometimes have small chips, which is an unavoidable part of the production process. The products are treated with care during every stage of the process from production to packaging, but some slabs may still feature small chips which should be almost undetectable once installed.
External Cladding Installation and Maintenance
