When you choose Rugged Slopes Hawaii for your stone wall construction, they will help you determine the best types of stone to use. What types of stones can be used for your wall?
- Ashlar: These stones are cut into regular shapes with flat sides. The professionals at Rugged Slopes Hawaii suggest using this type of stone if you want your wall to appear smooth and flat.
- Fieldstone: The stones are collected from fields and come in different sizes. Since they are almost always rounded, your wall will have more of a natural look. The contractors at Rugged Slopes Hawaii use fieldstone to construct walls that will provide strength and durability.
- Rubble: When you want your wall to consist of smaller stones that are irregularly shaped, Rugged Slopes Hawaii will use rubble stones. Rubble stone is ideal when you want your wall to have a textured appearance.
- Stone Veneer: This type of stone is made from either natural stone or a material that is similar to stone, such as concrete. If the experts at Rugged Slopes Hawaii use stone veneer, it will usually be thin pieces that are attached to the face of your wall for cosmetic appeal. However, it can also be used for smaller walls.
The professionals at Rugged Slopes Hawaii will use the dry stack method when constructing your wall. A wall that has been created with the dry stacking method will not rot, crack, or experience moisture damage. In addition, they will allow moisture to pass through while retaining soil. A dry stacked wall is durable and long lasting.
