THE SYSTEM IN USE:
ADVANTAGES OF STONE RAINSCREEN SYSTEMS
- The weight of cladding is much less than the weight of full sized stones.
- Cladding is much lighter. You can usually safely add it to existing structures without too much concern over added weight.
- It also allows you to build a new, modern home, with all the modern advances in insulating and energy conservation, for example, that still looks old.
