Every wall has different components to ensure it is strong, durable, and can handle a wide range of weather conditions. Capping is one of the most important components of outdoor walls, and it should always be installed correctly to ensure the structure can stand the test of time. At TR Stonemason, we install sandstone wall capping and have ample experience with this material. It stands up well in real-life conditions, especially in Australia.
What is Sandstone Wall Capping?
A wall capping is a cover for the top of a wall to protect it from moisture penetration during rains and help maintain structural integrity. Without capping, water can slip in between the joints of the wall and cause problems down the line. Capping can be made from a wide range of materials like aluminium, steel, concrete, natural stone, and even asphalt. Most people choose either stone or concrete because they are some of the most durable and easy to maintain materials available in the market today. We install sandstone wall cappings because they are a great material with a strong track record in Australian properties.
What are the Uses of Sandstone Wall Capping?
Wall copping plays a vital role in the overall construction of a wall, which is one of the reasons why it is essential to ensure it is installed correctly. Here’s a look at some of the uses of these components:
- Protection From Weather – Capping doesn’t just protect the wall from rainwater penetration; it also protects it from frost, dust, and excess heat. It ensures mould doesn’t settle into the cracks and gaps of the wall and cause problems down the line.
- Uniform Appearance – Sandstone wall capping gives the structure a uniform appearance that is crucial to maintain the visual appeal of any property. When a wall has a cap, it looks complete and put-together. We can install sandstone caps of different designs and colours to improve the appearance of your outdoor walls as well.
- Extending the Life of the Wall – A wall capping is a protective component that can help reduce wear and tear caused by exposure. This naturally increases a wall’s lifespan and also helps cut down on maintenance or repair costs.
- Improving Structural Integrity – Capping helps balance out the structure and improve its overall integrity.
