The Durability Of Stones

Stones are extremely durable construction materials, and this durability comes from the processes that stones have to go through to be formed. Stones form over a large period of time through geological processes which are extremely harsh. Large amounts of pressure and heat on the sand that is present on the earth, transform this and into extremely durable stone. This stone has extremely low permeability which means that it can last for a long period of time and will not allow for water to seep in through it. This means that whatever is behind the stone will be protected against water seeping in through the stone. This is extremely important for many words as well as retaining walls as this is where drainage can play an extremely important role in. Having water seeping in through the outer layers of the facade or the retaining wall can have devastating impacts on the facade itself and, in the case of retaining walls it can result in the collapse of retaining walls as the strength of the retaining wall is basically determined by the water pressure that is exerted behind it along with the amount of soil that is being retained by the retaining wall. Having a stone facade or a retaining wall blocks Perth gets rid of these problems as the stones that are being used in the creation of these facades and the retaining wall are of an extremely low permeability which means that water has an extremely hard time trying to get through the stone.
