Colour

Are you looking for neutral or warm? Vibrant or muted? Cultured Stone cladding is available in a stunning variety of colours. You can blend two or more textures or colourways to create a distinctive result.

Trim

A selection of Cultured Stone cladding accessories are available to put the finishing touch to your project.

Grout

The colour of the mortar you use can have a big impact on the overall look of the project. It can blend with the stone cladding or complement the colourway and make it stand out.

While some Cultured Stone cladding stone textures are designed to be installed only with or without the standard 12mm mortar joint, others may be installed using a variety of techniques for greater design flexibility. Among the most popular installation techniques are dry stacked, tight-fitted stone without a mortar joint; standard 12mm mortar joint finished in a variety of ways (e.g. raked, full to face, overgrouted, or various forms of weeping joints); and wide joint, usually full to face or overgrouted.
