Sandstone has been used for centuries to transform structures from the ordinary to the extraordinary and can showcase your vision through stunning beauty and durability. Its warm and subtle color makes it a perfect choice when featured in new projects, when matching existing structures, or as a complement to other building materials and environments. A very versatile material, sandstone resists weathering and has a high absorption rate and low compression strength, making it suitable for a variety of building and paving applications. Generally, the stone has a uniform, aesthetically pleasing appearance and is somewhat soft, making it particularly well-suited for textured finishes. Brownstone is a popular variety of sandstone.
