Granite facades most wanted

updated: 25/03/2021

Cracked and sawn granite facades are the most sought after.

 

Granite covering 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.

 

Besides beauty, granite is more sustainable than most materials.
