For more than two centuries, sandstone has been the buildingblock of Australian architecture. Amongst many other construction materials, it is the most beloved one as it helps create beautiful facades in creamy rose and golden hues as well as having the strength and durability, which outlast other building materials. Even though sandstone requires some maintenance – it is most likely to rising or falling damp or drainage problems. Sandstone will remain to hold great allure for its appeal and quality as long as it is properly looked after.

Throughout Australia, sandstone works as the foundation of many heritage villas and cottages as well as contemporary houses. Sandstone is recognized for its natural strength, durability, load-bearing ability, and slip-resistant nature. The fact that it is incredibly resilient, sandstone confronts the harsh Australian climate and is one of the very few building products that increase both in value and aesthetic appeal over time. Additionally, sandstone is a good insulator to keep homes cool in summer and warm in winter.

 The rustic and neutral shades of natural sandstone help release warmth in cold weather and remain cool during warm sunny days.
