There are some amazing benefits to utilizing Sand-Stone’s Cultured Stone products, including but not limited to:
Traditionally, Cultured Stone and Manufactured Stone products are much lighter than Natural Stone. This means you can more viably use the stone to create walls or overhanging archways, among other building projects. You not only can cut down on your adhesive costs, but you can have a thinner structure, and cut down on your ACTUAL costs!
With Natural Stone, you will largely be held to the designs and color options that Mother Nature has created for you. While we agree that Natural Stone is beautiful in its own unique imperfections, cultured stone can offer limitless volumes of design and color flexibility.
Cultured, synthetic stone is not only lighter and more customizable than natural stone, but did you know that most cultured stone is actually self-supporting? It can often be applied directly to a clean, prepared masonry surface, or attached to a stabilizing object like a metal lathe.
More bang for your buck
If you have a larger surface area that you wish to be encased in stone, you will very likely be able to stretch your dollars much further if you choose to use synthetic stones. For instance, if you want to cover an entire wall face, instead of just a wall accent, you can cover much more surface area for the same amount of money with cultured stone.
