Such a process is called cementation. Sandstone is relatively soft and easy to be processed. However, when buying this material, you should pay attention to its resistance to abrasion and to its degree of water absorption. There two types of sandstone on the market available: the harder ones and the softer ones. The harder version, the more suitable it is for elevations.
