Ashlar with Best Price


 What is Ashlar?

Stone is one of the most widely used and used building materials from the past to the present.

In the past people used stones to build houses and the material was more important than metal.

Nowadays, with the advancement of science and technology of stone extraction, it has become easier and more widely used in the construction industry as well as in stone building.

Stones have unique capabilities that are not comparable to other building materials.

They include high durability and high resistance, optimum polishing, high abrasion and

abrasion resistance, shear and polishability, washability, color fastness, heat and

humidity resistance, good tensile and flexural strength, non-abrasion resistance It is mentioned as permeability, resistance to climate change, high hardness and

compressive strength, stability against acidic and alkaline materials, etc.

The stone is used to cover the interior wall of the building, facade, road construction, wall and foundation, street floor and sidewalk and various decorations.

The materials are made of rocks and their application is different, each having its own characteristics with regard to the properties of the stone.

Stones are widely used in construction because of their resistance to various factors.

Nowadays, due to the ease of stone extraction operations, its use is expanding and is being used in various building locations. Examples of stones used in the construction industry include:

Floors of buildings and stairs

The stone used for stairs and flooring will be subject to abrasion and impact, so it must be very hard and have high abrasion and impact resistance.

The floor stone of the building should be cut in one direction, such as sedimentary and metamorphic rocks that have the advantage.

In addition, because of exposure to contamination, stone and stairs should have low porosity so that they are not impermeable to damage by washing with detergent and pouring on acidic substances or playing on it.

Quartzite and gneiss are among the rocks suitable for floor and stairs.

Interior wall covering

The use of stone for the interior wall of the building gives it a very cool and glamorous appearance.

Basically stone is used to cover bathrooms and sanitary walls, office buildings, shops, dining halls and more.

The stone used for the wall should have a beautiful, rough surface.

In addition, its porosity is low so as not to damage the detergent by washing and to reduce its resistance.

Building facade

Another use of stone is the facade of the building.
For the facade of the building, durable and durable stones are used to prevent damage to various environmental factors.
Variable atmospheric conditions, sunlight, frost, dust, acid rain, air pollution, etc. are factors that affect rock resistance.
Therefore, the minerals must be examined before stone-working and buying the stone.
Stones that contain iron ore are not highly corrosion resistant and are oxidized to weather.
In addition, if impurities are found in some part of the rock, it can be destroyed.
The rock is selected based on the area and weather conditions on which the building is built. For example, rocks with low porosity are suitable for cold areas because frost or wind will not cause them to be destroyed.
The shelf life of the building should be estimated prior to the facade, and then the facade should be selected. Overall, the rock should be stable due to its open air and variable climate conditions.

Wall and foundation

The rocks used for the retaining walls are arranged irregularly without any special shape.

The rocks used in the area are used to save construction costs.

Smaller pieces can also be used to fill the gap between rocks.

Porous and layered rocks with high solubility are not suitable for walls and foundations.

But hard rocks with high compressive strength and specific gravity are suitable.

Most dolomitic sandstones and limestones are a good choice for walls and foundations.

Roof Cover

Although stone is not used today to cover the roof of the building, in some areas these can be seen.

Roofing stones should be lightweight, porous, impermeable and with high flexural strength.

In addition, it can be divided into thin, flat layers. Chlorite schists and mica schists are suitable rocks for roofing.

Decorate the building

Stones of a good color and appearance, in addition to their high durability, have good flexural and tensile strength for interior decoration.

These stones are used to decorate the fireplace wall, columns, door and window frames, etc. Stones can be used for this purpose.

Types of building stone


Granite is a type of igneous rock that due to its high density and hardness are considered durable materials.

Granite is expensive because it is costly to extract, cut and polish.

Granite is used for infrastructure, flooring, painting and interior decoration.

It is impermeable rock and highly resistant to impact and water penetration.

The surface of the granite can be polished and its appeal to the building.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock and is found in a variety of designs, colors, shapes and sizes.
It is used to decorate floors, walls, indoors and outdoors, columns and statues.

Quartzite rock
Quartzite is one of the rocks that is very resistant to weathering, so it is used for wall covering, building facade, stair surface and floor.
It is very similar to granite, but harder.
The appearance of the crystalline quartzite rock is red, gray and brown in color.
The price of quartzite rock is lower than other rocks, so it is affordable for use in buildings.

It is weaker than granite and stronger than travertine.
Marble is highly polished and has a mirror surface.
This type of stone is used for interior decoration, flooring, columns, stairs
and interior decoration because of its high gloss and beautiful colors.
The marble has colors of red, yellow, white, gray, purple and green
and gives the building a unique beauty.
Marble’s resistance to moisture and pollution is low,
so it is not recommended for building facades. Marble is more metamorphosed than marble,
and the colors and veins that it shows indicate impurities of primary limestone.


Marble is a sedimentary limestone that has been altered to some extent.

This stone is classified into three categories:

Chinese stone, crystal stone and cloud stone.

Chinese stone has fine and crystalline texture and is divided into three types:

white Chinese, crystal Chinese and gray Chinese.

In contrast, crystalline rock has a coarse-grained, crystalline texture and occurs in areas with high metamorphism.

Clouds, a kind of marble, also have a cloudy state, actually composed of non-parasitic strips of light and dark minerals.

Marble has no resemblance to marble.

This rock is highly resistant to various atmospheric factors and has high compressive and tensile strength. It is lighter than other rocks but has high stability.

Marble does not absorb water but has little resistance to weathering and acid rain.

This low resistance has made it work only inside the building.

Marble types include Khoy marble, White Mountain, Dehbid, Harsin, Shiraz, Kavir Desert and Kerman Kav.

Travertine stone is obtained by the deposition of hot water streams underground and
is used in cream, white and gray colors to represent the building and interior decoration.
Among the types of travertine stone are stala kate and stala gemite.
These rocks are used in the tropical areas to decorate the exterior of the building.
Travertine has calcium and there are many mines in the country at present to extract it.
One of the most famous travertine rocks is the Haji Abad travertine, which is known all over the world.
The rock has a cloudy, windy and corrugated design and is extremely well cut.
Hajiabad stone is an ideal choice for use in the facade of hotel buildings and lobbies.

Available in white, gray, red, yellow, red and brown colors, this stone is suitable for indoor
and outdoor use due to its high versatility.
Sandstone applications include flooring, wall covering, roof covering, balconies, pools and patios.

Gabbro stone
It is a kind of inner igneous rock that is dark in color and coarse textured.
The gabbro stone has high weathering resistance, which is why it is used for building and flooring.
The gabbro color is green, black and grayish green with a polished appearance.
