Stone cladding and stone facings are cast in moulds, using a unique process that replicates existing colors and textures with meticulous detail.
Each color and texture has its own blend of ingredients: including Portland cement, lightweight aggregates and iron oxide pigments, producing the look and feel of natural stone.
Weight is one reason. Less dense and lighter in weight than natural stone, manufactured stone is easier to handle, store and install. Less weight also means artificial stone can be applied in more areas, and with less support, than would be required for natural stone. Yet, the material has all the beauty of natural stone.
