Reconstituted Stone

Reconstituted Walling Stone

All Brick and Stone also provide reconstituted walling masonry stone. Our walling range provides both contemporary and traditional options many of which are designed to match existing buildings in areas where stone was traditionally used as a façade material.

Reconstituted walling stone is a very popular choice with local developers and builders, it is widely accepted as a durable, attractive and cost-effective alternative to natural stone. This product is cast in moulds taken from authentic natural stone and thus recreates the unique textures and subtle characteristics of raw natural material. Walling stone is also produced using sawn, cropped and tumbled techniques which produce a truly authentic look and feel for any scheme.

Among the many options to consider when choosing walling stone are the numerous variations in colour, texture and style – we have the experience and commitment to find the best solution for your specification.

 

Reconstituted architectural stone

Reconstituted stone, also known as cast stone, is an aggregate based product which is manufactured to replicate natural stone. It provides a cost effective alternative and for this reason has become hugely popular with developers, contractors and self-build clients. It is typically made from fragments of natural stone which have been mixed with cement allowing the mixture to be poured and shaped as required in moulds. There are many different formulas and types of reconstituted stone that may use different coarseness of aggregate or specific kinds of cement. It is this that makes cast stone such a versatile and useful building material. In many cases it outperforms natural stone in key areas – strength, resistance to moisture penetration and consistency of colour.

One of the primary appeals of this stone, is that blocks of almost any shape can be created using specially formed moulds in which the stone is cast allowing us to produce a range of bespoke architectural products. Cast stone replicates natural stone extremely well and can transform the appearance of a building.
