In addition to the wall, it is also used as a paving stone. Furthermore, travertine stone is highly resistant and it has a variety of colors.
Building facade with Granite stone
Granite stone can be considered the most suitable stone for building facade due to its resistance and strength to weather conditions. This stone is used a lot in the facade of the buildings, but due to its high weight and lack of adhesion, it is no longer recommended for facade uses.

Compared to travertine stones, it has higher density and fewer pores. In general, the use of polish marble is not standard for the façade. And, if you want to use it for the facade, you must pay attention to the types, features and finishings of this stone.
