Add value to your home

Looking to boost the beauty and value of your home with a stone fireplace? Think about it: stone is as Cultured Stone Veneersturdy and as classic as the best investments come. If you are mulling over the stone to use in your new construction project, check which do you think will fit into the style, weather and feel of your home; it's either going to be in natural stone or cultured stone. Natural stone is the investment per excellence; it is pricier, weightier, and a testier work of art to handle compared to cultured stone. Your options for this category tend to be limited, too. Granite, Marble, and Limestone are the typical options. Cultured stone products can however be designed to "match" the stone surface type you are going after, are typically more striking and durable than real stone products for fireplace projects. Imagine also the pleasant bonus of lesser costs. The look of cultured stone is composed of stone aggregates, dyes and lightweight cement. It is said that most sellers of cultured stones offer a half-a-century guarantee against wear and tear. With respect to natural stone, let's take a closer look at a perfect representative: natural limestone. A sedimentary rock made of calcium carbonate, the appearance and quality of the limestone is influenced by factors such as the quantity of calcium carbonate in the limestone and the amount of fossil contained in the final product of natural limestone.

What are the advantages of Cultured Stone?

It is considerably lighter than natural stone or brick. This is a consideration when designing your foundation. The more weight you have to support the more extensive your foundation must be. This was a major consideration for us because we are in a region that is know for unstable ground. A brick ledge is not required on your foundation to install the stone. This is partially because it is lighter and also due to the fact that the back of the stone is uniformly flat allowing for good surface contact for installation. Cultured Stone is easier and quicker to install. It is also readily available wherever you need it and Owens Corning has a 50-year warranty on the stone.

What are the disadvantages of Cultured Stone?

Castle Stone CulturedIt could be more expensive if you are in an area that has natural stone readily available. If it is not installed properly it will be obvious that it is fake. This is the case if the installer leaves large gaps between the stones. Manufactured stones are not a thick as real stones and they do not look natural if too many gaps are apparent. Use care in choosing your Cultured Stone manufacturer. They are all not created equal? Take the time to have a close look at the stone you are going to purchase! Some manufactures do not color their stones with the base color thru and thru. This is very important because when the stone is cut the interior color will show. Many product look like pure concrete in the center and look fake when cut or shaped to fit. A very good way to check this is ask the salesperson to show you a stone cut in half. If the surface and the interior are not the same color you will have an ugly edges showing when the installer cuts the stones to fit in tight spots.
