Natural stonework has been undoubtedly one of the most widely used building materials throughout history.
However, it is easy to understand the extended use of these stones in the construction industry in view of its many advantages. Would you like to find out what are the advantages of using natural stonework in any building project? Then read on.
Natural stonework advantages
Nature has been in charge of providing natural stonework with its shape, providing it with its unique features and beauty. In contrast with other synthetic materials, you will never be able to find two identical marble worktops.
Exclusive, beautiful and unrivalled are some of the adjectives that best define natural stonework.

Natural stonework comprises very different materials, including marble, granite and slate, as well as limestone and sandstone, as the main highlights. Its rich variety allows natural stonework to be used for different purposes, therefore meeting all the needs of the construction sector.
Natural stone can be used for:
- Floor and wall tiling
They are suitable for both indoors as well as outdoor areas.

A further advantage of natural stonework as a construction material is its durability over time, thanks to its physical features. This results in a significant reduction in maintenance costs.
Thermal and noise insulation
Thanks to its thickness, natural stonework can provide thermal and acoustic insulation to any home where it is installed.
- Thermal insulation: it will keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter, thereby resulting in energy savings. This feature is known as thermal inertia.
- Noise insulation: by using natural stonework, we can reduce the impact of any external noises.
A further notable feature of natural stonework as a construction material is its ability to resist heat and fire. Therefore, this is a fireproof material that can be used for splashbacks or as wall and floor tiling in order to delay any potential fires from spreading.
Wide range of environments
