Performance Evaluation of Cladding Stone in Buildings and Urban Works

Flain E., Righi R., and Frazão E.

Abstract—The requirements regarding to aesthetic effect of the buildings require that coatings with dimension stones maintain their initial appearance even when subjected to various actions such as mechanics, chemistry, thermal and hygrometric related to its use and with the actions from the weather. It is of knowledge of experts that finishes with dimension stones may be subject to the occurrence of diversified pathologies, depending on the characteristics of rocky materials used, of the constructive process adopted for the fixing of the plates to the support, the degree of control of the fixing of the plates, the use and maintenance stage and the degree of detailing of the project. This paper discusses the main factors involved in performance of stone veneers in buildings and in urban works and present typical examples of most frequent pathologies in such finishes.

Index Terms—Stone cladding, pathologies, stone veneers.
