Many people inquire about whether we do commercial work. The answer is yes; we do commercial work. Although we tend to do a lot of work with home owners; in the last few years we have done some work for the Continental Currency Exchange both at the Georgian Mall and the Upper Canada Mall. At both locations we worked with a design team to install the best look for their project. The clients chose a European Castle Stone which gave the store front a very elegant and classic look. Below is an example of Commercial application of cultured stone in Barrie.
Top 4 Reasons to add Cultured Stone to your Commercial Building
The benefit of cultured stone for your commercial building or store front is its durability and aesthetics. It can change a very bland exterior commercial building into a warm and inviting place that will attract customers and make for a more pleasant surrounding for your staff to work in.
Reason # 4 It is very attractive and is welcoming to your customers
A welcoming storefront or building is much more likely to have people take notice and want to visit compared to a boring cement block front. People like curb appeal and cultured stone has so many styles and textures that it is easy to find a stone that suits your style and helps to promote the image of your business.
Reason # 3 It is Very Durable
Provided it is installed correctly by professional installers such as the cultured stoners it is a very durable product that stands up very well to the elements. I myself have cultured stone on my house and it has withstood harsh winter weather and even survived an F0 tornado which tore through our neighborhood in August of 2009. The cultured stone on the exterior of our house remained unaffected and continues to give us maintenance free enjoyment to this day.
Reason #2 Manufactured Stone Can Be Installed On Virtually Any Wall
The versatility of manufactured stone veneer is that it can be installed on virtually any wall without any costly work to shore up the foundation. In fact it can be applied directly over cement block walls with relatively little preparation work.
Reason # 1 Commercial application of Cultured Stone is Less Expensive Than Natural Stone
Using a commercial application of cultured stone veneer saves you. First, artificial stone veneer weighs so much less than natural stone, the cost to ship the stone to your job site is much less. Second, there is no need for costly foundation work needed to support full bed stone. The stone veneer is adhered directly to the wall and only weights an average of 12lbs per square foot. Third, labor costs are usually lower, since manufactured stone is lighter and easier to work with. It can be installed faster, saving both time and money.
By adding a commercial application of cultured stone veneer to your commercial building or storefront you will be creating uniqueness for your business. With the wide variety of styles and colours to choose from you will be able to create a unique look that will make your brand stand out from your competitors.
