What is Urestone?
URESTONE is based on a innovative Dual Layer Composite system. The surface layer is a durable impact resistant plastic layer that is also used to produce automotive car bumpers. This layer is followed by a low density foam system which provides thickness and insulation value. The end result is a system that is tough and is the most authentic replication of a stone panel in both appearance and texture available on the market today. Breathtakingly beautiful!
Unlike real stone (or cultured stone) which requires several stages and specialized stone mason’s labor to install, URESTONE panels installs easily and quickly with screws and/or adhesives . The only tools required are a drill (used as a screw-driver) and any wood type saw for trimming to exact fit. “Anyone that knows how to use these simple tools can easily install several hundred square feet in a day!”
The weight of the URESTONE 4ft x 8ft panels are 36 lbs. (less than a sheet of plywood). This light weight panel allows for easy handling and installation. “What more can you ask for than a ‘light-weight’ building product?“
Durability & Strength.
Don’t let the weight fool you! This lightweight panel (approximately 36 lbs.) is so strong and durable, due to the unique Dual Layer composite, that even a weed trimmer will not damage the surface. The solid tough impact resistant plastic layer resistant to damage unlike competitive synthetic faux stone systems that are more easily dented and scratched. URESTONE can also be installed below grade! With the moisture resistance, even backfilling is OK. “Our panels are the strongest surface in the industry!”
Large panel size
Size does matter— the URESTONE panels are a professional 4ft x 8ft size (32 sq ft. each) which dramatically saves labor and installation time while providing less seams and grout lines. Installing one of our panels is equal to installing over 200 individual real or cast stones. And consider the time to place each stone versus one panel, a few screws, and done! “URESTONE professional panels are the largest synthetic panel in the Industry!”
The realism in our panels is achieved by casting our molds from natural quarried stones. What separates Urestone to competitive synthetic samples is the quality of the detail from our molds and the more dramatic depth of the stone pattern. “We begin with a true craftsman’s approach to design!”
Our unique coloring system replicates the realism of stone. It is based on our multiple step coloring process that provides a long term performance and appearance. Our color schemes will enhance any application, whether it is on the interior and exterior of your home or building.
The URESTONE panels have incorporated an “interlocking” design that allow fast installations and have been engineered to have the seams to blend together thus, eliminating the visibility of any vertical seams – when properly installed. “The interlocking system virtually eliminates all vertical seams!”
The URESTONE panels provide up to R4.5 insulation value for every 1″ of thickness, The panels range in thickness – due to the topical formation of the stones – from 1″ to 2″ of thickness. “All this, certified ‘Green’ by The United States Building Council.”
The URESTONE system allow carpenters or home owners to install the panels quicker without the need of a more time consuming and expensive masonry process. This provides significant cost savings to the overall project
