Why Would You Choose Manufactured Stone?
Stone gives a rustic, cozy and warm atmosphere to any interior or exterior. It is also very useful and versatile for endless indoor and outdoor projects from a fireplace to a walkway. So why would you choose manufactured stone instead of the real deal?
The answer is three-fold. First, manufactured stone is much less expensive than real stone, which is often a deciding factor. Second, there is less waste with manufactured stone because it is easier to customize to the area. Third, manufactured stone is lighter and easier to install than real stone, which means that you can install it virtually anywhere and installation may cost less.
More About Manufactured Stone
Manufactured stone comes in a variety of shapes and sizes to mimic the look of a wide range of real stone types. It has come a long way over time and now looks very realistic. Sometimes called fake stone, it is made from real stone pieces mixed with binders and in some cases is molded from real stone to take the texture and shape of the authentic rock. Therefore, it’s hard to tell that you’re not looking at the real thing.
It is not easy or possible to put real stone just anywhere. Many jobs require installation procedures like wall ties, which makes the process more time-consuming and costly from labor. Manufactured stone cuts out these steps, making the process easier and cheaper. Since it is lightweight and simple to install, you can basically put it anywhere that is structurally sound.
How Can You Incorporate Manufactured Stone?
You can accomplish just as much with manufactured stone as you could with real stone. Artificial stone veneers are generally made to install vertically, so it’s not something you would use for a walkway. Therefore, it works perfectly to add aesthetic value to your home in the form of a fireplace, a stone wall, a kitchen backsplash or another decorative touch of your creation.
Aside from stone veneers, you can get manufactured stone in many shapes and for many purposes. For example, you could install a manufactured stone countertop, bathtub or flooring.
Synthetic stone is perfect for indoor and outdoor use for homes and businesses. If you have questions or would like suggestions on how to use it, our friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff would be happy to help you. Just give us a call or stop by The Rock Place!
