Architectural cast stone is a highly refined building material, a form of precast concrete used as masonry intended to simulate natural-cut stone. It is used to build stone porticos, stone window sills and window heads, pier caps, stone steps and other cast stone structures. Depending on what project you’d like to tackle and what your budget and personal style is, architectural cast stone may be the perfect material for you.
What is Architectural Cast Stone
Architectural cast Stone is a type of precast concrete designed to simulate different types of natural cut stone. Specifying cast stone allows the designer the ultimate freedom to achieve the aesthetic they desire without restriction. Architectural cast stone is made from fine and natural aggregates, a cementitious binder and colouring where appropriate. It is produced from specially designed moulds which may be made from wood, rubber or glass-fibre to make it easy for the mason to install it.
