Stone Cladding is a very popular cladding which gives a very natural and rustic look to the building. They include marble, granite, sandstone, slate. These materials are cut into slabs of uniform thickness so that the installation is very simple and easy. Stone cladding is widely used in landscaped gardens and in the interiors to exude a feeling of warmth by highlighting some walls.
