Natural Stone VS Manufactured Stone Veneer

Natural Stone VS Manufactured Stone Veneer

When upgrading the exterior or interior of your home or business, nothing beats the sophisticated look of stone. At Reuther Material, we offer a wide range of solutions that will fit your application and budget. Whether man-made or natural, you’re find the perfect solution to add value, while elevating the curb appeal of your home.   

Let’s take a closer look

Manufactured Stone: comes has a variety of names – cultured, man-made and faux. But simply put, this product is synthetic and crafted to look like natural stone. It’s a combination of concrete, aggregates and iron oxides added for color and formed to imitate the look and feel of real stone.

The advantages of manufactured stone veneer:

  • Uniform quality
  • Light weight (its original advantage when compared to natural stone)
  • Easy to work with because of repeat patterns
  • Lots of color options

Natural Stone: quarried from the ground, it’s the real deal – all natural with nothing added and no color additives.

The advantages of natural stone veneer:

  • Color doesn’t fade and often looks better with age
  • Authenticity of real stone
  • Less porous than its manufactured alternative
  • Very durable
  • Lighter weight. With new cutting techniques natural stone can be cut thin to match the weight of manufactured stone.
