StoneLite® from Stone Panels, Inc. Among Materials to Look At
DALLAS (September 2011) – In the wake of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami from the spring of 2011, the Japanese government forecasts spending for rebuilding at $293 Billion. This amount is twice what it cost to rebuild from the Great Hanshin Earthquake 16 years prior, according to AsiaPulse News.
The Japanese reconstruction spending is an important reminder for builders globally. For both new construction and reconstruction, there are measures that builders can take in their choice of building materials to ensure that their costs are minimal and don’t contribute to spending number that are as astronomical as those in Japan. Building materials, such as StoneLite® from Stone Panels, Inc., can help to prevent cost of reconstruction because they are not as brittle as solid dimensional stone.
The strength and flexibility of stone products like StoneLite® can mean less damage to building materials and therefore less need for reconstruction. Conversely, in the aftermath of an event that creates a need for reconstruction, stone panels can be much more economical to install than alternative building materials like solid dimensional stone. Lightweight stone products require less means in the way of both transportation and installation. StoneLite® is therefore more cost-efficient because of the lesser crew and machinery it demands.
