Looking to boost the beauty and value of your home with a stone fireplace?
Think about it: stone is as sturdy and as classic as the best investments come.
If you are mulling over the stone to use in your new construction project, check
which do you think will fit into the style, weather and feel of your home; it's
either going to be in natural stone or cultured stone.
Natural stone- is the investment per
excellence; it is pricier, weightier, and a testier work of art to handle
compared to cultured stone. Your options for this category tend to be limited,
too. Granite, Marble, and Limestone are the typical options.
Cultured stone- products can however be designed to "match" the stone
surface type you are going after, are typically more striking and durable than
real stone products for fireplace projects. Imagine also the pleasant bonus of
lesser costs. The look of cultured stone is composed of stone aggregates, dyes
and lightweight cement. It is said that most sellers of cultured stones offer a
half-a-century guarantee against wear and tear.
With respect to natural stone- let's take a closer look at a perfect
representative: natural limestone. A sedimentary rock made of calcium carbonate,
the appearance and quality of the limestone is influenced by factors such as the
quantity of calcium carbonate in the limestone and the amount of fossil
contained in the final product of natural limestone.
