Building stone

Our Coursed Natural Limestone building stone is available in a range of materials and to our standard sizes. Our standard building stone course heights are 65mm, 90mm, 115mm, and 140mm.

Building stone can be used to great effect alongside the traditional limestone ashlar plinth, quoins and window surrounds. This can display the stone beautifully in its natural environment.

Generally we would supply a set proportion of each size so that the final wall does not look too heavy with any particular size. The stone is nominally 100 - 110mm on bed but wider stone can be specified up to 300mm. Each block is a random length within a range of 200mm to 450mm long.

The benefits of coursed natural stone
All stone is available shrink-wrapped on pallets containing six square metres for easy on site handling. The pallets can be stacked, therefore saving valuable space on site.

Stone comes in 65mm, 90mm, 115mm and 140mm heights. The nature of the four heights coupled with the random lengths of the stones creates a natural look to any finished wall.

The stone can be rumbled at no extra cost to achieve a more rustic appearance.

We have the facilities to produce a minimum of 200 square metres per week.

The limestone can be laid straight from the pallet, no sorting or any tooling or residual chopping is needed therefore minimum wastage is achieved. In addition, expensive Stone Masons are not required.
