Ashlar - Plain Section, Chamfered, Riven and Bespoke
Description

Cast stone products are typically more cost effective than the quarried stone alternatives, but for stone wall cladding, and in particular ashlar walling, this is especially so. The reason that cast stone cladding is so much more cost effective than real stone cladding is that natural stone ashlar walling has to be sawn to very precise tolerances and then the surface needs to be smoothed to remove any production marks. It can then be laid with joints as small as 3 mm and therefore appears almost seamless. As cast stone walling can be created in virtually any colour, it can be used in restoration projects in place of selected original stone cladding. This process is much more cost-effective than using natural stone cladding, and the end result will typically look every bit as good.
