Cracked and sawn granite facades are the most sought after.
Granite flooring is used on facades on exterior walls since the earliest times.
The architectural offices that use the granite facades for their strength have also created new shapes and finishes that make modern granite buildings. Normally, the granite for ventilated facades is cut to a thickness of 30-40 mm. The most sought after finishes, for granite façades, continue to be cracked and sawed.
Granite is more sustainable
Recently, a life cycle assessment study for different types of flooring and floor coverings on standard surfaces was published by the Institute of Building Materials at the University of Stuttgart.
This study showed that granite is extremely sustainable when compared to other floor coverings. Natural stone is also ecologically the best choice with regard to production, assembly and daily use when compared to other types of coating.
In the Global Warming Impact (GWP) impact category, the production and installation of natural stone slabs clearly shows a lower CO2 equivalent than when compared to other types of coating.
