The use of stones in work has a direct relationship with the concrete, as it will be an added element so that the resulting concrete achieves the properties of resistance, durability, workability, thermal, elastic, weight and volumetric changes.
Another essential element for the mixture to be adequate is to use suitable cement, which gives you quality and is adaptable to the type of construction you are doing,
Types Of Building Stones
The importance of stones in construction and the final result have already been mentioned above, so it is time for you to know the different types:
