Using natural stone or brick as a finish on your house?

Ensure that you have bought sufficient materials to complete the job.

If you believe that you may run short during construction we would strongly advise that you purchase additional materials before the original batch runs out.

The main reason for this is to ensure that you achieve a finish that is well matched. If you completely run out of stone, there is a significant risk that the additional stone may be different in colour or size and then you end up with a section of the external walls that looks quite different.

Purchasing additional stone or brick before you run out enables you to blend and mix the two batches if required to minimise or eliminate any differences in appearance across the structure.
