When it comes to choosing construction material, many people are faced with the challenge of choosing between cost and durability. Many people make the bad choice of choosing the former over the latter. They later regret their actions.
After the foundation, the support of the house is the walling mostly done with stones. Natural stones are the best for walling because they are highly durable. Granite is a very good stone in wall building because apart from its durability, it's very attractive.
Granite is a mixture of quartz, feldspar, and some traces of mica. The stone has a compressive strength of between 75 to 130mpa. It has a specific gravity of 2.63 to 2.75 and its density is between 2.6 to 2.7 KN/m3.
The stone can retain its color for a very long time and it does not easily weather out. It provides a beauty that never fades. Look at the beautiful building below whose walling has been done by this stone.
The stone color also blends with the colours of roofing materials available in the market
