It is a question we obtain requested again and again, must i use real stone or man-made stone around the outdoors veneer of the house. Man-made (fake, faux, cultured, etc.) stone is really a cementitious product designed to simulate gemstone. The "gemstones" are created thin and put on the outside wall having a thin coating of mortar. Although it appears simple, there’s really a lot more into it which where the first problems arise. Cement loves to absorb water even more than gemstone. Otherwise applied using the correct materials beneath it to help keep this water out, you’ll have major issues lower the street.
Additionally, if you reside in a place which has a frequent freeze/thaw pattern that as well will ultimately cause difficulties with man-made stone. We have all seen concrete driveways and sidewalks with cracks at first glance, this really is caused crazing, and it is common in man-made stone too. With time, these surface cracks won’t marly the look of the stone, but probably allow more water to infiltrate inside. Once this water freezes and thaws again and again (within Might, we average about 90 cycles annually), the cracks will expand and contract, further weaking the stone until, you heard right, off it pops in the wall.
The most popular thought of man-made stone was it’s less expensive compared to real factor. Today, that cost gap has narrowed significantly as some quarries are actually creating a product known as Natural Thin Veneer (NTV). The product is formed such as the man-made products, but completely genuine. It is going on like man-made stone, but does not attract water. And, since it is thin, the prices can be compared. Our Very Ridge NTV (observed in the image utilized on the most recent Oklahoma Joe’s) is simply $10 /sq. foot. at Sturgis Materials.
