For the past decades, a form of home improvement called stone cladding has been traditionally used. Lately, however, has seen a sharp peak with homeowners using stone cladding as a way to improve the aesthetic quality of their homes.
Why the sudden peak of interest? Mainly because stone cladding not only adds allure to a property; it also packs a lot of benefits that are too good to pass up.
The wide variety of styles, shades, and designs provided by stone cladding make it must-haves for any home. Its flexibility allows a homeowner to choose the natural stone material to use as stone cladding ranging from slate, marble, rocks, sandstone, and more.
The benefits gained by using stone cladding indoor and outdoor spaces of the home include:
Adds the perfect touch of elegance to a home
A home using stone cladding both indoors and outdoors quickly adds a perfect touch of elegance to it. Stone cladding one entire indoor wall creates an indoor ambience. The fireplace and floors of a home are the usual popular spots that use stone cladding. The versatility and durability of stone cladding take off the worry of having to tear down a fireplace or floor in the future to replace it with some other material.
A pre-existing home most likely will not be able to support the weight of heavy stones added onto its walls. Adding full-sized stones to the home structure is only possible with about to be constructed homes.
Stone cladding provides the perfect solution for a property to acquire an instantaneous facelift without having to worry about the stress placed on the structure.
The best solution for earthquake-prone locations

The availability of stone cladding in these areas makes it the best material to create a stone finish look to a property.

Stone cladding not only adds a classic and sleek finish to any home; it is also an effective insulator. This benefit helps to reduce utility bills and reliance on a home’s cooling and heating systems.
Noise and pollution outside the property are also greatly reduced by stone cladding. Stone cladding walls of the home provide noise and pollution insulation like no other.
