Cladding adds a unique feature to a home and buildings.
Generally available throughout Polokwane and South Africa. Stone
and sandstone are ideal for use as cladding. Most sandstone used
in Polokwane 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.
