What sets Stone Mill apart from Their Competition:
Manufactured stone has been designed to resemble the random beauty and nature of real stone. It creates a sense of permanence and strength. Our manufactured stone has been molded from natural stone to create an identical copy of the stone’s texture. Many contain small air holes or surface anomalies, which add to the overall character of the stone. This helps to make manufactured stone indistinguishable from natural stone.
Offering great looks and durability, at less than half the price of real stone installed, more and more people are choosing Stone Mill products than ever before. While manufactured stone is generally less expensive than natural stone, the installation is also more economical because it can be installed more quickly and easily than natural stone. Since manufactured stone is much lighter than real stone, you will save on the shipping if it is needed.
While natural stone requires additional structural support to hold the excessive weight, manufactured stone veneer is installed directly to the surface, without the need of reinforcement due to the lower weight of veneer. This saves time and money to any project you may have.
Often times a customer wants stone that is not quarried in the area in which they live. This is where Stone Mill can provide a manufactured stone that meets the esthetic and color the customer desires. We offer multitude of stone profile and color choices available in our showroom and brochure.
