Cladding adds a unique feature to a home and buildings. Generally
available throughout East London and South Africa. Stone and sandstone
are ideal for use as cladding. Most sandstone used in East London is sourced
in Lesotho. Sandstone cladding comes in virtually any shape and size.
Sandstone building blocks come in standard sizes or can be cut to order.
The blocks can replace the use of traditional clay or cement bricks,
alternatively, sandstone can be applied as cladding to existing walls.
There is a choice of finishing to the surface. Slate and sandstone
cladding add a new dimension to both the exterior or interior of a
building, giving it a natural look and feel.
Cost of cladding
Sandstone and slate is sourced in South Africa. Expect to pay
R 400-R600 per sqm for sandstone and another +/- R 200 per sqm for installation.
