Why are stone keep castles built?

To replace Motte and bailey castles. Motte and Bailey castles were wood castles built on a man made mound of earth (motte) with a section around the motte for the staff to live in (the bailey). Motte and bailey castles were only temporary and they were quick to build. They weren't very good in defence because they could burn - they were made of wood. Stone keep castles took months, maybe even years, to build but they were untouchable compared to the motte and baileys. Also, because they were made of stone, they lasted a long time. Most of the stone keep castles that are standing today were built in the medieval period.
