Stone masonry is an art, and a science, where stones are sculpted and used in the engineering and construction of buildings, monuments, and other structures. Nothing is quite as beautiful as stone and today professional stone masons work to create everything from fountains and sculptures for outdoor use to structures and design elements for interior spaces either in homes or commercial properties. Stone is a durable natural resource that is available in a wide array of textures and colours. Today, you can get stones for your stone masonry products from across your state, or from around the globe. If you are looking for a more rustic design, local stones may be worth considering. If you are looking for a dynamic and unique stone, you may select something from South America or Asia.
When considering the type of stone to use in a project, it is essential that you choose the stone that has the durability you need. Granite is considered one of the most durable and hardest stones. It is great for both interior and exterior projects. Marble on the other hand is softer and is recommended primarily for use indoors as the elements can mar or otherwise damage it. Sedimentary stones have unique and dynamic characteristics and many fine works are found in the some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Sandstone and limestone are both sedimentary stones and are available in a wide array of colours and textures to flow with any design aesthetic or style.
