Oldcastle Architectural Introduces New Collection of Masonry Stone Veneers

Oldcastle Architectural, a provider of concrete masonry products, has formed a line of high-density, pre-finished architectural concrete masonry units called Artisan Masonry Stone Veneers.

Oldcastle Architectural’s Technical Advisor, Len Browning informed that the Artisan Masonry Stone Veneers collection comprises the company’s six artisan designs, thus making it a perfect solution to architects, designers and homeowners seeking an aesthetically pleasing handcrafted look with modern performance.

Artisan Masonry Stone Veneers are made of a superior performance water repellent admixture, thus offering efflorescence stain resistance, resisting mold, and repelling moisture. The aggregates of every stone are thoroughly blended to avoid color fading, and thus provides a better aesthetic appeal.

The new collection features Slatestone, Lamina, Dufferin Stone, Waterford Stone, Franklin Stone and Cordova Stone. Slatestone looks like a large stonework, which is in high demand in urban settings. It has three different textures featuring a modular shape, clear contours, earth tone colors, a rich finish, and marked edges.

Lamina, the only thick masonry veneer, has a stacked stone look with a unique appearance that improves architectural design with novel texture. It may be utilized on the full facade or to highlight certain architectural components such as wall skirting or sections.

Dufferin Stone, a natural texture veneer, offers a stylish old-world look. It can be fixed utilizing the same building techniques of laying bricks. Its different sizes and modular configuration provide a hand-hewn appearance in tailor-made ashlar patterns.

Waterford Stone is a multi-purpose masonry veneer offered in different rich textures and warm color blends. Franklin Stone features the clean lines and smooth texture of cast stone and all the benefits of concrete masonry. Its innovative texture offers a natural stone look.

Cordova Stone also offers a natural stone. It will improve the lifespan of a building and does not require any maintenance whatsoever. Every product is offered in different sizes and is ideal for institutional, commercial and residential applications. Moreover, cutting and shaping are possible with all Artisan Masonry Stone Veneer products in the field, thus providing a cost-effective and efficient installation.
