Commercial Sandstone Cladding, Veneers and Facades for Commercial Projects
Sandstone is a popular option for many commercial building projects because it has a high resistance to weathering and abrasion. Commercial sandstone is also resilient to the sun’s effects, being incredibly thermally stable and naturally fire resistant, making it an excellent choice for exteriors to buildings when used as cladding, veneers and facades.

The longevity and durability of Gosford Quarries’ natural Australian sandstone is one of the main reasons it is used so often on Commercial buildings.

The Hydra-split and Rockfaced Sandstone Finish for Commercial Projects
The two most common rustic sandstone finishes for cladding are “Hydra-split” and “Rockfaced” finishes. The Rockfaced and Hydra-split cladding offer customers a classic and timeless textured rough face cladding that brings the warmth and texture of a natural stone face into any project. The Rockfaced Cladding in particular is highly sought-after to achieve the traditional and immediately recognisable texture of Australian sandstone into Cladding, Feature Walls, Fences, Walling and Capping projects.
Commercial Sandstone Projects and Heritage Restorations with Sandstone

Commercial projects are often integrated with Heritage Restoration or matching existing colours and materials. Gosford Quarries are leaders in Sandstone Heritage Restoration and can supply sandstone cladding in bespoke heritage finishes like the Sparrow Peck and Convict Picked Finishes.
Gosford Quarries offer more contemporary, modern-look cladding options for new commercial projects such as smooth “Diamond Sawn”, “Honed” and “Bush-Hammered” Sandstone Finishes. These finishes are minimalistic and offer subtlety and natural beauty to lobbies, external building facades and feature walls. Gosford Quarries Sandstone Cladding is available in a large variety of customisable sizes and thicknesses which make them ideal for Internal and External Sandstone Cladding alike.
Gosford Quarries also have sophisticated profiling technologies allowing us to create and carve artworks into Sandstone Commercial Murals and Bespoke Curved and Artistic Cladding. This has been a stand-out for Architectural Design in Commercial Project Cladding.
