Stone Cladding Inspection

Whilst stone cladding looks durable, GBE noticed some defects always be down-played its severity.To exemplify here is the hairline crack usually found on the stone surface. It may be easy regard as minor defects but indeed GBE thinks it isn’t.

The anchor bolt is inserted into the stone. The pattern and location of the cracks found near the anchor point becomes an alarming signal for building owners to pay attention to. The crack developed near the anchor obviously weaken the load taking capacity by the bolt. This eventually may cause stability failure.
