Bedrock Natural Stones offers a wide range of natural stone cladding and tiles for both interior and exterior walls.

In ancient architecture, the use of stone in buildings exemplified wealth and raised the status of the owners. Today, although it is commonly used as flooring and wall cladding in all sorts of buildings, it still raises the value of properties due to its durability and natural beauty.

“Apart from contributing to aesthetics, the use of natural stone massively reduces maintenance cost if done properly since you will never have to paint again,” says Garth Batteson, chief executive officer of Bedrock Natural Stones.

Bedrock Natural Stones’ collection of natural stone cladding and tiles includes a wide variety of quartzites, verdites, silcates, glitterstone, shales, slates, basalts and sandstones for application on both interior and exterior walls. Available in numerous colours and textures, this robust architectural material can fit into almost any design.

Technical advice
“With 17 years of experience in the industry, we have the technical know-how to give clients the best professional service available,” adds Batteson, who advises that some of the most important aspects to keep in mind are the following:
•    Walls to be cladded need to be sealed in the appropriate manner.
•    The correct hardware (carrying irons, rock clips, etc.) must be used.
•    The building mortar is of utmost importance to ensure the longevity of your project.
•    External walls should be finished with a coping to prevent water ingress.

Based in Kameeldrift East, Pretoria, 90% of Bedrock Natural Stones’ product range is manufactured locally, with strong ties to a number of foreign quarries. The company has also announced the launch of a brand new range of products soon.
