Panelized Version of Stone Veneer Shortens Installation Time

Cultured Stone, the company that pioneered the manufactured stone veneer category, continues to innovate by launching a panelized version of its Drystack Ledgestone profile in three color options; rubicon, melrose and high plains. As the darkest palette in the profile, rubicon presents a contemporary blend of deep grays and carbon-inspired tones. For those seeking more neutral shades, melrose incorporates a assortment of light-gray hues, and high plains showcases an earthy grouse color with tan undertones that accentuate its rustic textures. The colors provide a variety of options to integrate with any design style, and the panelized system makes installation more efficient at a time when labor shortages within the building industry are high.

There is a growing need to incorporate time-saving solutions for both new construction and remodeling projects as contractors struggle to find qualified laborers and meet high construction demand. A survey commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that 91 percent of contractors, construction managers, builders and trade contractors reported having a difficult or moderately difficult time finding skilled workers. Understanding that this shortage includes a decrease in skilled stone masons, Cultured Stone takes the lead in innovation through the debut of a panelized system that makes installation more efficient.

Drystack Ledgestone panels provide the same textural variations present in the non-panelized profile, which is notable for its ability to capture both light and shadow in the interplay of carefully selected and shaped stones that have been tight-fitted for drystack installation. Architects and designers prefer Drystack Ledgestone for its texture and color variation, which blends well with both contemporary and traditional design styles.
