Qualified Stone Masonry in Melbourne

Otherwise known as stonecraft, stone masonry in Melbourne refers to the building of a structure using stone as the primary material. Historically, stone was an essential material that people used across the globe. In fact, stone masonry is one of the oldest professions that exist today. Structures built from stone such as monuments, temples, shelters, roads, bridges and entire cities remain standing firm. Some of the renowned structures resulting from the work of a stonemason include the Taj Mahal in India, Stonehenge and the Great Wall of China to mention a few examples. You can add strength and beauty to your commercial and residential property by recruiting the services of a professional organisation such as Melbourne Stone Construction.

Benefits of a Stone Masonry Installation

Masonry, in general, refers to brick, stone and concrete blocks. The materials used in masonry are non-combustible. Therefore, it protects the occupants from fire. For this reason, people often install fireplaces using stone because of its resistance to heat. When you choose stone masonry for your property, these are some of the benefits you will enjoy.

  • The most apparent advantage of stone masonry is the durability of the material. It’s the ideal addition for any high foot traffic area of a property as stone is naturally robust. Once installed correctly by a professional stonemason, you can depend on the feature to last several years.
  • There is a misconception about stone being uninspiring in terms of adding aesthetic value. With a variety of colours available and the difference in the size of each stone, it makes for an interesting piece of work. The texture and appearance of every stone is unique, which results in endless design possibilities.
  • After you’ve had a reputable contractor handle your stone installation, the natural durability of the material helps take care of itself. There is little or no maintenance work for you to conduct. The occasional sweeping away of dirt and debris will increase its longevity, but when you decide on stone masonry design, you can rest assured it will last decades.

Interesting Facts About Commercial Stone Masonry

We’re aware of the historical background of stone masonry and its multiple uses. However, several facts about it are relatively unknown.

  • Ancient Egyptians constructed the pyramids through the art of stone masonry. The mortars used in that time were made from burned gypsum and sand which they carried in scaffolding using horses and carriages. The Great Pyramids of Giza is over 5,000 years old and consists of more than 2,300,000 blocks of stone.
  • Masonry is a trade that requires skill that professionals acquire through years of learning and effort. Over time, a trained mason masters the art of recognising various design patterns, textures and colours to create the perfect product. They require extensive knowledge into reading blueprints and building codes and then lay every brick or block of stone by hand.
  • Governments around the world recognise masonry as a contributor to going green in construction. The products are widely available, so using them doesn’t deplete natural resources. In fact, brick is made from clay and shale, which are natural ingredients and among the most abundant materials on earth. Furthermore, the materials are easily recycled, and when installed in the home or commercial building, it is slow to absorb and lose heat. As a result, you don’t have to rely heavily on your air conditioning which contributes positively to the environment.
