Stone is natural, variable, and will lose strength over time. Before stone cladding is applied to a building, clients ask WJE to perform a series of tests on the material to assess its likely performance.
In this new episode of WJE's "Solving for Why" series, WJE architect Daren Kneezel walks through each step in the process - from accelerated weathering through destructive testing - and discusses what the end results tell us about stone durability.
