Manufactured Stone

What is Manufactured Stone?

It is often erroneously called ‘fake stone’ which does the material a disservice. Manufactured stone comes from real stone pieces which is mixed with binders and is sometimes molded from real stone to take the shape and texture of real stone.

Manufactured stone has come a long way since the early days when it did look cheap and unrealistic. In the modern era, it is possible to create manufactured stone that mimics the real thing so well it can be tough to spot the difference without a thorough inspection. Let’s face it, how many of your neighbors are experts when it comes to determining real and manufactured stone?

Why Choose Manufactured Stone?

Natural stone adds a cozy, warm and rustic atmosphere to any home. It is also extremely versatile and can be used for a multitude of exterior and interior projects ranging from walkways to fireplaces. So why choose anything else? At AZ Rock Pros, we can give you 3 compelling reasons:

Cost: Like it or not, natural stone is expensive as extracting it from a quarry and shaping it just the way you like is a difficult and time consuming process. Manufactured stone takes less time and labor so you enjoy a massive price cut.
Waste: With natural stone, there is a lot of waste involved in completing a project which only adds to the cost. Manufactured stone can actually be created using this cast-off rock and it is much easier to customize a project.
Installation: When natural stone is installed it looks absolutely amazing and is well worth the effort. However, installation procedures such as wall ties may be necessary which increases the time the project takes. With manufactured stone, all time-consuming and costly steps are bypassed and since it is lightweight, it is incredibly easy to install.
Using Manufactured Stone

At AZ Rock Pros, we can accomplish as much with manufactured stone as we can with natural stone. Typically, manufactured stone veneers are designed to be vertically installed which means it is not normally used for walkways. However, it is the perfect choice if you want to add class and comfort to your home in the form of a fireplace or stone wall. We can even install manufactured stone flooring, countertops or bathtubs!
