Dimension stone is any type of stone, igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic rock, that is cut, trimmed or drilled in order to obtain blocks of different sizes and shapes. When selecting the type of rock an important criterion is the durability, the color and the texture. Granite, marble, limestone and sandstone are the most known rocks used as dimension stone. It is produced in states such as Indiana, Georgia and Wisconsin. The average cost of dimension stone varies depending on the type of the stone. For example for granite the price is $30 to $60 per sq ft.
