Cultured Stone® – Installation Costs
Cultured Stone® - Installation Costs
Cultured Stone® installation costs are a fraction of that of real stone. Nationally, the total installed cost for labor and material ranges from $7.50 to $14.00 per square foot, depending upon your geographic location. (April 2001) Once again, even though this material is light weight, shipping costs can dramatically affect the cost of the material, especially if you live in a very out of the way place.
The interesting thing about the above numbers is that the national average cost is actually $8.50 per square foot. This means that it is very affordable when compared to natural stone installations.
Aside from Cultured Stone®, many manufacturers produce artificial brick, cap stones, planting bed edging materials, brick pavers and cobblestones.
Some of the larger companies, such as Cultured Stone Corporation, have the capability to produce custom colors as well. This means that you can individualize your project to suit your own tastes.
If you are planning a stone project and like a particular color of natural stone, simply obtain a few samples and these companies will do whatever is in their power to match them for you.
