Q: What Does Wastage Have to Do with Design?

A: In terms of the stone industry wastage refers to materials that are damaged, out dated, reduced, or unsaleable, and for the most part destined to be thrown away and many times written off as a complete loss. It is important to make sure there will be enough material to complete the project at hand before making a final selection of stone. When taking wastage into account an often looked over fact is that material available at a quarry present day differs from what was available in previous months.
