Wall cladding is a concept that helps people improve their properties more than any other wall building processes. Stone wall cladding becomes more beautiful with MKW Surfaces’ workmanship and the amazing materials it offers for completing this process. When it comes to applications in stone wall cladding, natural stones such as marble, limestone, granite or quartzite have been traditionally used for many centuries. With the help of technological advances over the last four decades and more so during the last five years, man-made products such as quartz, porcelain, ceramic, terrazzo and other materials have also become very popular for cladding as they can imitate the natural look of stone in a more realistic manner than ever before.
What are the characteristics of engineered stones?
• You can find them in an extensive range of colours, finishes and textures owing to its versatility and unlimited potential when it comes to creating unique designs.
• They come in thicknesses starting at 3mm which means that light weight stone panels can now be cladded practically in any interior or exterior area, no matter how small or intricate the space to be covered may be.
• Earth’s surface is protected due to its quality of being synthesized as most branded products are made in an environmentally conscious manner, mixing raw materials and minerals with very little aggregates. The most popular products currently are Dekton cladding and Neolith cladding.
• Due to the presence of non-toxic and non-porous materials, the wall is harmless to people which avoids the proliferation of bacteria when in contact with water in areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms.
If you decide to use a natural stone such as marble during the stone wall cladding process, the result will always be a beauty to admire which is a unique piece of art, as each slab of natural stone is individual and unrepeated in nature in such way that visitors and onlookers won’t be able to take their eyes off, quite literally. You can also use most of these stones outdoors as well as indoors without any stress of getting damaged nor affected by the weather.
When it comes to heat and cold resistance, natural stone can inherently withstand extreme conditions. This also applies to most engineered stones and especially to the newest types of surfaces such as quartz, ceramic and porcelain.
Regular maintenance of stone wall cladding
The daily maintenance of stone wall cladding is both convenient and time-saving. Most walls made from stone will only require a little bit of soapy water and a cloth to maintain their original sheen for many years to come. Since most stone comes with very low water absorption, there is no risks of any rotting of its surfaces nor growth of mould.
As it is an easy process of maintenance, you will be hassle-free of cleaning up your walls constantly. Let your home or office interior and exterior get a new definition with the inimitable effect of wall cladding in stone which enhances beauty and brings nature to interiors.
