We crush limestone to powder, add hydrated lime and proprietary ingredients for bonding; When water is added, we have 8 hours to hand carve and pigment. The next day the stone is as real as if we laid it stone by stone. The advantage is that because of our light weight, you don’t have to remove your old brick and add extra footing for weight control. All wall surfaces such as brick, wood, sheetrock, cinder block, inside or outside in any rock pattern can be achieved. We can give you the look that you want: big stones small stone, any shape and color, at less than half the time of laying stone by stone and for a fraction of the cost. Adding old world stone to chimneys, around windows, doors and arches gives added charm and value to homes. Our prices are much less than half of laying stone by stone.
