Cultured stone gives you another option besides natural stone. It can be extremely beneficial to use in construction projects for various reasons. Find out if cultured stone is right for your project.
What is cultured stone?
Cultured stone (also known as manmade or manufactured stone) is a manufactured stone made from cement. The cement is poured into a stone-shaped mold and colored to look like real stone.
The manufactured stone veneers are virtually indistinguishable from natural stone. They both look just as authentic, so you (or anyone else) won’t be able to tell the difference between the stone types.
What are the benefits?
The main benefit of cultured stone is the cost. Cultured stone is often cheaper than natural stone and can save you a lot of money without sacrificing the quality.
Cultured stone can also save you money in installation costs. Because installing natural stone is more complicated, many people will hire a mason in order to install it. But cultured stone makes the process easier. Thanks to the ease, it can save you money in hiring someone to install the stone.
Another benefit is that the cultured stone will last just as long as natural stone. It can hold up against weather conditions as well. Cultured stone’s durability is often equal to natural stone.
