Today's manufactured stone combines Portland cement, lightweight aggregates, and mineral oxide colors, to duplicate the color palette of building stone common to most U.S. regions.
The process utilizes a variety of molds, which create textures and shapes that replicate natural stone. Units can be hand-tooled and hand-finished at the jobsite.
Installing veneer units is virtually as easy as tiling a wall. Weighing 10 lb./sq.ft. or less, they exert minimal shearing force, which may eliminate the need for footings, wall ties, or other structural supports. Whether you hire contractors or perform the work yourself, manufactured stone from Acme Brick installs quickly and easily.
Wherever the appearance of real stone is required, ask your Acme representative or visit an Acme showroom for samples.
