Sandstone Building Block and Veneer for beautiful homes

Sandstone Cladding/Veneer, adding flair to your old home
Basket Range Sandstone veneer is cut to match standard brick coursing at 76mm, 162mm, 248mm high by roughly 25-30mm thick. All stone unless specifically ordered is cut at random lengths. This veneer otherwise known as cladding is mainly used in lieu of solid stone. Especially when there is already a solid substrate to attach to (e.g. to beautify homes like an old brick facade, or fireplace).

If you plan to build a new home with a sandstone facade, its generally more economical to build with solid stone. This is because you would need to have a suitable substrate (something like brick or concrete block) made and then the veneer stuck on top of it. If you go with block you need only to lay the block in the same way you would lay a brick wall.

Blocks
Unless otherwise noted all building sandstone is fully dimensioned and finished ready for laying (no size cutting or preparation is required).  The sandstone block is cut to match standard brick coursing at 76mm, 162mm and 248mm high by 110mm thick.  All stone unless specifically ordered is cut at random lengths.

Sandstone cut to specific sizes will have a 20% surcharge added.
