Sandstone cladding is a popular material used by architects, builders and home renovators for Retaining Wall, Seats and Steps.
Sandstone cladding is popular because of what it adds to people’s homes – warmth.
Versatile, Sandstone Cladding can be used to create a façade around your home that makes it resemble a 16th century castle straight out of Toulouse, France.
But it can also be used to create attractive seats in your garden, driveways, walkways, retaining walls, and decorative stone steps.
The building material choice of kings for centuries, sandstone blocks have been used since ancient Egyptian times.
The Egyptians believed that stone carried an energy ring around it that was sacred.
Whether this is true or not, we don’t know, what we do know is that sandstone blocks and sandstone cladding take an ordinary home and transform it into something – special.
We’d like to believe so.
We are, after all, South East Queensland’s leading supplier of Sandstone Blocks to the building and construction industry.
From Helidon Sandston to Yangan Sandstone, we supply all varieties of sandstone to trade across Australia.
Our quarries are over 80 years old that have, in the past, supplied sandstone to many of Brisbane’s State Heritage Buildings.
Quite a lot if you examine how Landscaper and Home Renovator Charlie Albone fixed this hidden gem in Jamboree Heights – a few kilometres from Brisbane.
He said – “the maroon and white exterior was dated and needed an overhaul, but a simple paint job wouldn’t be enough to save face.
So, he made a feature wall using sandstone cladding — not to be confused with the very expensive solid sandstone.
This option significantly reduced the stone weight and therefore the cost but offered the same luxury look”.
What this gave the home according to Selling Houses Australia, Host, Andrew Winter was ‘STREET APPEAL.’
