Cultured stone is a blend of stone particles and resins that is combined with pigments to produce a wide range of colors and realistic, natural looking patterns – cultured marble, cultured granite, and cultured onyx among them.
One of the main benefits of cultured stones over natural stones is that cultured stones are much more lightweight. This places less weight on the foundation of your home, which is a particularly important factor if your home is built on unstable ground. In addition to that, cultured stone does not need a brick ledge on the foundation. This is mostly due to the fact that the back of a cultured stone is flat, which allows for excellent surface contact.Cultured stone is also faster and easier to install than natural stone. It is easy to find and simple to replace. While it can be a costly investment compared to natural stone, it can last a long time with proper maintenance. You just need to make sure the stone is installed properly so it can look as natural as possible.
