Reach out to us if you have additional questions about exterior stone options!
- Cultured Stone – Cultured faux stone veneer (or manufactured stone) is engineered to provide the look of natural stone. It is a beautiful byproduct of cement aggregates and iron oxides that are baked in textured molds. Through this process, the veneer stone walls take on a natural stone look without incurring the costs of gathering and transporting real stones, which can be costly. The cement within the veneer stone gives it stability. This type of stone is lightweight, has design flexibility, and is more eco-friendly than other types of stone. Installing cultured stone is also an easier and quicker process, so you can cut days out of the project timeline. You can use this type of stone for interior and exterior projects, including cultured stone fireplace additions.
- Natural Stone – Our masons are skilled in working with both cultured and natural stone for exterior home projects. Natural stone, rock, and brick are excellent for building purposes, but give you little choice in size, shape, and weight. The natural stone weighs twice as much as veneer stone and must be placed with great care. It does not cut easily to fit different surfaces, which contributes to it being more costly than cultured stone. Our natural stone options include thin brick, rolled river rock, ridge stone, limestone, granite, among several others. The natural stone also comes in a variety of different colors and is more resistant to fading from the sun.
