The Advantages of Using Centurion Stone Over Natural Stone

Mar 30, 2015

Stone veneers are a great way to add not only durability and strength to your home’s exterior, but also a natural beauty that can greatly increase your property’s curb appeal. However, we recommend considering the use of Centurion Stone over the use of natural stone when deciding on stone veneers in Kansas City.

Centurion Stone is unlike natural stone in that it is manufactured from a combination of materials, including Portland cement, lightweight aggregate, permanent mineral oxide pigments and some chemical additives. Basically, the base mix will absorb the pigments to make it similar to natural stone. So what is the actual advantage of using Centurion Stone over natural stone? Centurion Stone uses molds that are cast from certain natural stones in order to capture the details that natural stone exhibits without weighing as much. Because it weighs less, manufactured stone veneer is easier to install and therefore costs between 30 and 50 percent less to install than natural stone.

Centurion is one of the oldest veneer producers in the world and has been producing their stone veneer for over 40 years. They ensure that their Centurion Stone either meets or exceeds all building code requirements for ICC ES standards by performing a number of tests on all of their products. Testing on Centurion Stone has shown that it does not support or contribute to the spread of flames, combustion or the development of smoke. In addition to being used as stone veneer on the exterior of your home, Centurion Stone can also be used behind a wood burning stove and on a fireplace front – as long as it’s not in the fire box space.
