One of the materials which has been used for the construction of buildings for quite some time since the historical days of the Egyptian era is granite. There are several chemicals active in the composition of granite all of which are quite appropriate for making it very ideal and durable as a building material of choice amongst many home builders. Additionally, granite comes in a wide variety of choice colors.
Granite can be used for both internal and external decor and for this reason it is always a material of choice use by most of the constructors and architects to get an amazing building construction. However, in order to create that structure of magnificence they wish to have with a granite construction, the contractors are to use the set of techniques as per the requirements of the particular building. Read on further and see some of the common techniques for putting up the granite stone walls as outlined in this article.
The first are the traditional mortared stone walls. In this olden style of building you will get the large blocks of stone placed in their best possible position and then the gaps left will then be bonded together. The common material used to bond these bits of stone is cement which is a component of a number of chemical elements such as calcium, silica, limestone and clay alumina. To get the cement a softer texture as it is used, you may add a bit of lime to it. You will as well find the construction of the free standing falls following the same precise formula for the construction of the rock walls as they as well demand a lot of care and will take equally long periods of time.
We will see the next technique that is used for the construction of the rock stone walls is the veneer rock wall construction. Veneer has been widely used for the interior and exterior d?cor of the structural walls and it is a composition or mixture of granite garnets in very thin forms. While using these, special kinds of equipments like metal tabs are used to have the granite placed efficiently. The rock wall constructors will even use metal bars in the walls as a step to reduce the cracking of the veneer stone walls.
The other common type of rock wall construction are the slipform stone walls. In this technique you will find a mixture of the techniques so far mentioned above-the veneer technique and the traditional mortared stone walls.
