Cultured stone veneers are cast man-made stone with lightweight durable cement which offers many benefits over the real stone. In most cases, they are less expensive alternatives to natural stone veneers but are built to last with low cost and easy installation. They do not need any foundation and can be installed on wood frames, masonry walls or metal structures. New technologies in recent years allowed manufacturers of cultured stones to make designs of molds and colors selection so good that they look like natural stone and only real experts would be able to point the difference which one is which.
