Stone Veneer Contractor in BerlinShould I Install Cultured Stone in Berlin or Natural Stone Veneer?

When judging from afar they look identical. Cultured stone is a man-made product that is designed to look like natural stone. Cultured stone is typically made of concrete and then pressed into "stone-shaped" molds. Natural stone veneer is quarried from the earth. Larger pieces are sliced to create thin veneers that Berlin masons install on siding and fireplaces. The major difference in function and appearance between the two is that many of the cultured stones are identical in color and/or shape so at a close inspection it is noticeable that they are impostors.

Natural stone tends to be more durable because it is also less porous than manufactured stone. It can handle a beating from a pressure washer more readily than cultured stone. The cultured veneer installed in Berlin tends to more easily adhere to a variety of surfaces that natural stone does not, such as existing masonry or wood frames. Interestingly, the price difference is not as big as one may assume. Although natural stone is more expensive to purchase and to install, cultured stone is more difficult to maintain and is less durable. In the end, it comes down to personal preference. If you're trying to decide between installing natural thin stone veneer siding in Berlin or cultured veneer, call the professionals at (978) 293-5703 for more information.
