If you thought the look of stone feature walls would be out of reach - you haven’t discovered Cultured Stone® cladding.
How many of us have hankered for that extra something to set our home apart, to add a touch of quality and distinction – but always thought it would be way too expensive?
That is now no longer the case, thanks to Midland Brick's Cultured Stone®. A high quality and exceptionally versatile stone wall cladding that has become a favorite with WA architects and builders, its remarkable ease of installation, affordability and authentic natural stone look has generated huge interest in the building industry.
The cleverness of Cultured Stone®
Cultured Stone® wall cladding is manufactured in California by Midland Brick’s parent company Boral. Here, craftsmen cast each Cultured Stone® unit in a natural stone mould to precisely reflect the original and then meticulously hand colour it to achieve the same look. A highly durable finish is then applied that requires virtually no ongoing maintenance or special coatings or sealing after installation.
Aside from its good looks, versatility and affordability, Cultured Stone® cladding is far easier to install than natural stone. It’s also tough enough to withstand WA’s harsh climate, making it the perfect solution for adding texture, colour and a whole heap of style to your home!
For those already in design mode and looking to create stone feature walls - large or small – there’s an impressive range of colours, shapes and textures to make Cultured Stone® a perfect complement for glass, timber and brick finishes.
And to add to the versatility, Cultured Stone® cladding can be installed by DIYers — especially the Pro-Fit and Country Ledgestone ranges — with Midland Brick offering an installation video and guides to those who want to install the cladding themselves. If you'd like to take more of a hands-off approach, never fear! We have a list of recommended installers all around the Perth metropolitan area who can assist you.
Why Cultured Stone® is loved so much
The great advantage with Cultured Stone® cladding is that it can be used inside and out without requiring any major structural changes to the construction process. This has made it a favourite for those looking to craft eye catching designs in interior spaces, like stone feature walls, intimate wine cellars and cosy fireplaces. And outside, Cultured Stone® works perfectly in stunning water features and stylish entry statements.
Around Perth, Cultured Stone® is already proving its popularity, having been featured in many homes and commercial projects including the new Perth Airport and The Breakwater at Hillarys Boat Harbour.
Cultured Stone® cladding is imported directly by Midland Brick.
