It is a decorative building material manufactured to replicate the look of natural stone. Cultured Stone (faux stone, man-made stone, manufactured stone) is concrete poured into a mold then colored to look like real stone. It mimics the looks and feel of natural stones to perfection. Cultured stone veneer is used as a protective and decorative covering for exterior or interior vertical walls and surfaces.

Manufactured stone veneer offers strength, durability, and distinctive aesthetic appeal. Cultured stone veneers, in general, are made of lightweight aggregate materials colored with iron oxide pigments, cast in flexible molds and installed with a variety of grouting styles.

Technical Stuff

The names cast stone, fake stone, faux stone, artificial stone, manufactured stone, and flexible stone veneer are also used for cultured stone veneer. Manufactured veneer is typically 1 inch thick and must weigh less than 15 pounds per square foot (73 kg/m2) so that no additional structural supports will be required. Cultured stone is self supporting by being applied to metal lath or directly on a clean masonry surface if installed indoors.

If you’re applying Cultured stone/cast stone outdoors keep in mind…

It’s critical to use the papers, install the flashings, and provide the weeps. No paper is intended to be absolutely waterproof for an indefinite period of time, that’s why the flashings and weeps are so important. If you don’ have them installed, water can pool at low points and stand against the wall for God knows how long... and no paper, be it housewrap, asphalt felt, or Type D kraft, is going to save your wall from rot if that happens. It will cost a little more, but it is a lot cheaper than hiring a specialist to fix the wall when the studs are decaying underneath the cast stone due to water filtration.

TIPS FOR OUTDOOR CULTURED STONE INSTALLATION

  1. Treat manufactured stone (cast stone, cultured stone) as if it was stucco.
  2. Make sure you have a weather-resistant paper barrier on that wall before you apply lath to the wall.
  3. Apply two layers of weather-resistant paper.
  4. To keep kicking water away from the building there must be properly lapped flashings wherever there are intersections between assemblies (walls and roofs) or joints between cast stone and other materials like stucco or brick.
  5. Providing a way for water to drain out at the bottom of the wall, is a ‘must’ if you’re applying manufactured stone/cast stone, outdoors…
  6. There is no reason cast stone should cause moisture issues if all these precautions are observed.
