The modern building and construction boom has seen a wide range of new and previously rare construction materials become commonplace. One of these materials is stone cladding. In the past, stone cladding was reserved for wealthy or upper class properties because it was expensive to buy, install, and maintain.

However, Stone Cladding Perth tell us that this has changed over the past decade or so as quarrying and building techniques have advanced. Stone cladding is now a relatively affordable option which is available to anyone. It’s attractive, durable and customisable.
