Cultured Stone in Calgary
Cultured stone, also referred to as artificial or cast stone, is a concrete masonry product that is manufactured and made to replicate the look and feel of natural stone. It is cast in molds, colored with iron oxide pigments and is the most popular choice for homeowners in Calgary. It is available in a large variety of colors, profiles, and sizes and some of our suppliers offer a lifetime warranty on their products. Ask your S.I.S. Reno Consultant for details.
Natural Stone in Calgary
Natural stone is available in an endless variety of textures, profiles, sizes and color. There is an appeal and affinity to the earthiness of natural stone that cannot necessarily be achieved with cultured stone. Natural stone is available in a beautiful spectrum of colors from tans and beiges (colors intrinsic to the Calgary area), to rich browns, grays and multi-colors. Natural stone has a varied appearance and can be complementary to any architectural style whether it be rustic, contemporary or formal.
Natural stone veneer is both a protective and decorative covering for the exterior of your Calgary home. The stone veneer is typically 1-1/2 inches thick and on average is about 15 pounds per square foot, which allows it to be installed without any additional support. Most natural stone installed on homes in Calgary is of a veneer type as such uses approximately 70 – 80% less material then full bed depth masonry thereby reducing the impact on our natural resources including the amount of fuel consumed during shipping. Natural stone is also superior in withstanding the effects of the sun, water and normal wear and tear.
