Tuozzolo Construction can help you choose cultured stone that fits your design preferences and your masonry projects. Cultured stone is a building material that differs from natural stone because it is actually manufactured and is cast into molds that mimic the texture and appearance of natural stone. This stone is lighter than natural stone and is created from concrete and special colored pigments. With color variations and details in the stone molds, cultured stone very closely resembles natural stone and can be used on the interior and exterior of home.
Cultured stone has advantages over natural stone – it is lighter than natural stone so that it places less pressure on the foundation of a home allowing it to frequently be used on vertical surfaces such as walls and chimneys. Cultured stone is also faster and easier to install than natural stone.
