5 Reasons To Choose Cultured Stone Over Natural Stone

Posted on 15 Aug 2018

Stone has been the building block of the family home since civilisation began, from its humble beginnings in prehistoric dwellings to its use as a modern day architectural feature material.

There is no question that stone is loved for its strength, durability and authenticity. It is recognised as a material that adds beauty and character to any space. But despite this, stone can be heavy, difficult to install, expensive and limited in terms of choice.

Midland Brick recognised the opportunity to overcome these issues and has introduced Cultured Stone to Western Australia. Around for almost 50 years in the US market, Cultured Stone is a manufactured stone cladding product that has all the qualities of traditional stone but with significant added benefits.
