Cast Stone Column
Aesthetically Pleasing for Your Front PorchA cast stone column is a concrete building stone that is made to look like natural cut stone.
It is one of the oldest known and most aesthetically pleasing forms of concrete today. Mary and I think it is a great choice for the sophisticated porch lover!
Making stone columns is very labor-intensive. However, it is a very versatile building material that wears better, has greater consistency in color and costs less than cut stone.
Spun-cast stone column by Royal CorinthianTo get it right, a proper mixture of white and/or grey cements, manufactured or natural sands, carefully selected crusher stone or well graded natural gravel and mineral coloring pigments to achieve the desired appearance while maintaining durable physical properties.
Did You Know These Points About Cast Stone Columns?
Spun Cast Stone - A Synthetic AlternativeSpecial thanks to Royal Corinthian for providing the following photos of spun-cast stone.
A great alternative to cast stone is spun cast stone like those by Royal Corinthian, a much lighter and longer lasting product.
Cast stone is a solid product which is usually water-based. Since it is solid and cast with water the result is a very heavy product. Spun-cast on the other hand is resin-based to help prevent water penetration resulting in a hollow stone for a much a lighter product.
Used primarily on the exteriors of homes, cast stone may be also used as part of concrete masonry veneer or an accent on homes covered with synthetic stucco or other materials. You can also use it as caps on landscaping walls and even as stair treads.
