Cultured Stone

Also known as manufactured stone or man-made zone  is concrete poured into a mold then colored to look like real stone. It was introduced several years ago as an alternative to the heavier natural four-inch thick building stone prior to the introduction of the thin stone veneer. The lighter cultured stone made for easier installation causing the product to grow in popularity. The popularity of manufactured stone veneers has grown exponentially in the past several years as people have realized that they can achieve the look and feel of real stone at a lower cost.
