Cultured Stone is often used on exterior walls as stone wall cladding, but is now increasingly being used in interior design to create feature walls and focal points inside homes and businesses.
Cultured Stone is a manufactured stone. It is recommended for work in interiors because of its light weight structure and quick installation. Cultured Stone often does not need any extra structural support associated with heavier real stone products, reducing costs and construction time.
Internal applications of Cultured Stone include pillars, wall features, fireplaces, chimneys and kitchens. Manufactured stone is versatile and can be adapted to most environments.
Manufactured stone is also not vulnerable to fire or heat, making it a suitable choice for fireplaces or chimneys. Cultured Stone can be used in new construction, but is also suitable for renovating old fireplaces, as it can be easily attached to existing brickwork.
Cultured Stone, available from Austech External Building Products , is simpler and quicker to install than traditional stone. Cultured Stone comes in both flat stones and stone corners and hence almost any area can be clad with it.
Traditional stone requires laborious craftsmanship; this takes time and is a premium cost, often costing more than the stone itself. Cultured Stone is designed to be placed on a wall, and can be installed by someone experienced in DIY.
Austech External Building Products carry over 40 different styles and colours of Cultured Stone.
