Rubble building stone is an identical material to our random building stone, but is ‘undressed’. This means it has a more raw, naturalistic type of finish, whereas random building stone has a more regular, coursed appearance.
Rubble building stone is also less uniform than random stone in its sizes. The heights and widths are more irregular, with the bed width cropping to between 75mm and 200mm (3 -8 inch) as standard. (‘Bed width’ is the width of your footing). As with all our building stone, our rubble stone will have at least one usable face per piece.
Being less regular in shape and size, rubble building stone requires the skills of a trained stone mason or appropriately experienced builder. The stone finish and technique is suitable for house construction and commercial / public buildings, restoration and renovation projects, particularly in historic settings and where a more traditional effect is desired.
One bulk bag of rubble building stone supplied to the standard 75mm-200mm (3 -8 inch) bed width will provide enough material for between 2 to 4.5 square metres of facing stone depending on the product.
Please note that the bulk bags are not weighed, but are approximately 900kgs
