Roughbacks and Weathered Edged Steps

February 21, 2011
BY Gavin Johnston

Roughbacks and Weathered Edge Steps are created by sawing the face of a previously split or the natural cleft face of a stone. The resulting stone has one or (two for steps) rough or irregular surfaced face and the flip side is sawn smooth. Roughbacks can be created as a by-product of making other stone products or they might be made on purpose when for example we saw the faces off old weathered granite building blocks. In either scenario the process is “green” and the resulting product is easy to install and has a very unique look.
