With each cut of our stone we give you an estimated coverage per ton. Coverage may vary depending on your masonry technique.
You will need to figure out the square footage. For example: You are building a stone wall 3’ high by 50’ long. Your square footage would be 150 square feet. Now you just divide that by the allotted coverage per ton. In this example say you want to use our small flag and small veneer for the stone wall. The coverage you should get is about 10-12 square feet per ton, so you would need approximately 15 ton of Skyline stone.
