Cultured Stone

Cultured stone, also called cast stone or reconstructed stone, is a concrete masonry product simulating natural-cut stone and is used in architectural applications. Cultured stone is used for architectural features: trim, facing buildings or other structures. Cultured stone can be made from white and/or grey cements, manufactured or natural sands, crushed stone or natural gravels, and colored with mineral coloring pigments. Cultured stone may replace natural cut: 

  • limestone 
  • brownstone 
  • sandstone 
  • bluestone 
  • granite 
  • slate 
  • coral rock 
  • travertine
  • other natural building stones

Below are some examples of cultured stone styles.
