Advantages of Cultured Stone
The advantage of cultured stone is that it is adaptable to both interior and exterior masonry tasks. Man-made from cement, some natural aggregates and pigment of iron oxide, these cultured stones are often molded into the shapes of natural stones. By making use of natural mineral pigments as well as specifically chosen concrete it is possible to achieve the color and texture of limestone, granite, slate and a range of other stones. Cultured stones are ideal for any stone or masonry projects that you have, like a decorative chimney, an ornamental fireplace, or an eye-catching trim to embellish a special corner of your home.
One of the chief advantages of using cultured stone is that it is comparatively light. This means there is less pressure on the foundations of your home, which can be very important if the ground on which you have built is unstable. Another, more practical advantage is that it is readily available on order and can be easily replaced if it is ever damaged. Despite its relative expense, you cannot compare this with the beauty of perfectly matched cultured stones shaped according to your specific requirements.
