We strive to meet today's building needs without compromising the future. Cultured Stone veneers are designed to not only beautify spaces but also take care of our shared environment along the way. To that end, our closed-loop recycling system allows us to reuse water during manufacturing, which proves especially important in California's drought-prone environment. This closed-loop system has reduced water consumption by 50 percent since 2006. Additionally, our Regrind & Reuse Program has reduced landfill waste by 80 percent per ton of product since 2009.
Cultured Stone was the first manufacturer to be third-party validated for recycled content, and its stone veneer products are certified through UL Environment to have a minimum average recycled content of 58 percent pre-consumer stream material. In terms of sustainability and usage, Portland cement, which forms the foundation of our aggregate mixture, is one of the most inert building materials in use today.
Varies per project, typically $6-8 per sq. ft.
“Arctic Hewn Stone’s bright color palette brings a fresh approach to the timeless aesthetic of age-old European stonework textures,” said Sarah Lograsso, Director of Marketing. “We’ve seen similarly luminous colors perform well on other profiles, and we believe this will add the perfect contemporary touch for specifiers looking to reimagine the artistic subtleties of color, depth and dimension on an intricately textured surface.”
