Different Styles of Decorative Stones for a House

Updated:2013-10-28 14:46:48

Using stone to decorate your home can give it a rich and earthy feel that is particularly appropriate for homes along mountain ranges or in wooded areas. There are several different styles of decorative stone that you can use on or in your house. The most expensive style is natural stone. Some manufacturers make natural thin veneer stones that are cheaper than natural stones. Cultured stone is the cheapest option for homeowners as it is made from concrete and natural aggregates.

                                                      

Cultured Stone

Cultured stone is a lightweight, cheap faux stone that builders use to cover the outside of a home. Because the stone is lightweight, it cuts the cost of installation and building. The average weight of culture stone is 8 to 12 pounds, and the average thickness is 1? inches. Manufacturers make the stone by covering molded plastic with a combination of cement, soil and natural coloring. This creates the appearance of real stone. Because it is made of concrete, cultured stone is as durable as homes made of brick or concrete. You can use cultured stone inside or outside your home. You cannot clean cultured stone with power washers or wire brushes. Poor quality cultured stone is sprayed with low-quality paints that may wash off in the rain.
Honeycomb Limestone
Limestone is a relatively soft stone that wears down over time. Manufacturers sell honeycomb limestone for landscaping purposes. Honeycomb limestone has circular holes in its surfaces that make it look as if they were worn down from dripped water. This is a unique type of decorative stone.
Natural Thin Veneer
Natural thin veneer is a very thin layer of natural stones that is placed over the frame of a house. While it still has some of the durability of natural stone, thin veneer is lighter and less expensive. Homebuilders can also install the stone faster than natural stone. Thin veneer ranges from 1 to 1 ? inches thick while natural stone is generally 3 to 5 inches thick. Natural thin veneers have the same color range and options as natural stone and will save you money on installation and transportation.
