The natural and ageless look of stone can be achieved without mining the earth or digging into bank accounts.

The natural and ageless look of stone can be achieved without mining the earth or digging into bank accounts.

In ancient times, homes were constructed with what the Earth could provide: wood and stone. Stone structures, in our minds, are timeless. From the ancient pyramids to Greek and Roman buildings and even the border walls of farms in New England, stone has secured its place as a strong and lasting construction material.

But stone is heavy, and quarrying and transporting it is costly. Custom-cutting of natural stone, necessary for most modern-day applications, adds to the already high cost. Homeowners often want the look of natural stone but can’t justify the expenditure. Fortunately, a beautiful, natural-stone look can be achieved without the strain on the budget or the environment. Cast stone veneer is the artisan’s solution to the problem.

Cast Veneer Stone, also known as stone cladding, is a product made by pouring architectural concrete into molds, created from actual pieces of natural stone, resulting in shapes that are virtually indistinguishable from their more costly counterparts. In short, veneer stone has the look of natural stone but with much less of the burden of cost, cut and transportation.

Cast Veneer Stone gives homeowners a wide range of options because the manufacturing process allows for a great variety of colors, textures and sizes. Masonry experts capture some of natural stone’s most popular profiles, such as Pennsylvania Fieldstone and Ledgestone, for use outdoors and in virtually any room in the house. Fireplaces, house facades, backsplashes, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and more all can be enhanced with manufactured veneer stone.

Cast Veneer Stone is a fantastic option for homeowners who want to reflect the strength, durability and timeless look of natural stone but do not want the expense of using quarried rock. A trip to a showroom can bring many delightful and inspirational surprises to homeowners searching for that special, time-honored look of stone.
