Stone Coat: Hydraulically Applied Limestone Veneer
StoneCoat is a patent-pending blend of hydraulic limestone and other natural stone materials specifically designed to be applied over almost any surface.
It is a perfect solution for remodeling existing commercial buildings and homes and is ideal for new construction of hotels, restaurants, state highways, municipal projects, and any other residential or commercial project.
Stone Coat is quickly becoming a product of choice in the building and remodeling industry because of its unmatched functionality, creativity opportunities and cost savings. Stone Coat’s patent-pending mix can be used in almost any remodeling or new construction opportunity.
The History of Limestone – For thousands of years, man has used limestone as a primary building material. Monuments such as the pyramids, Sphynx and the Parthenon, are all made primarily of limestone and offer proof to the longevity and majesty of this unique stone.
However, in the early 1800s Portland cement was invented and replaced limestone because it was cheaper and more readily available. With the shutting down of many quarries, limestone became more difficult to find and more expensive to acquire.
Today, the demand for limestone is at an all-time high as a much sought-after building material signifying strength and elegance for both residential and commercial construction.
Our patent-pending process allows us to blow a layer of pure limestone and then carve it into any rock design including Austin Chalk, river rock, pebble stone, cast stone and many more. By using natural pigments, we can also color the rock for a true natural look!
Advantages of Stone Coat
Choosing Stone Coat can dramatically reduce construction time, since our process is faster and creates less mess than either traditional stone or brick. In addition, at only six pounds per square foot, Stone Coat can be applied vertically without a brick ledge, thereby offering more versatility and less labor costs than construction using quarried stone or brick.
Because of this light weight, Stone Coat also offers increased creativity and can be blown directly onto sheetrock as well as precast and other customized elements. The opportunities are limitless with barrel ceilings, arches, wine cellars, fireplaces and dozens of other interior applications.
In terms of creativity and custom design, STONE COAT cannot be matched by traditional cut stone or other concrete veneers.
