Stone Cladding, Private Residence - March 06, 2017
External and internal stone cladding is well underway by our skilled stonemasons based in Cardiff, South Wales.
The stone being used, Vals Quartzite (also known as a mica quartzite) was put forward by the client and originates from Switzerland. Quartzite is a non-foliated rock, formed from sandstone when the temperatures are high and the pressure is low.
Vals Quartzite is pleasing to the eye, due to being highly compressed it has a fine veined texture where you can clearly identify the formation of layers and shimmers under light.
