Ōamaru Limestone Sawn Faced Masonry Cladding

The Ōamaru Limestone Sawn Faced Masonry Cladding finish is created by “sawing” the Ōamaru stone with a diamond disc tooth saw. This produces a rather rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations. These furrows temporarily catch the beauty of the sunlight, creating a feature wall that evolves as the day does. Sawn finishing the stone provides a matte tone.

If you prefer, the saw marks can be honed out for a smoother finish. Size-wise, Ōamaru natural sawn stone blocks are cut to order.

For more than 100 years, architects and craftsmen used Ōamaru natural limestone to build splendid banks, churches and houses. These days Ōamaru Stone is still being used by architects on many prominent buildings all around New Zealand.
