Boral Cultured Stone Introduces Four New Colors for 2014

Cultured Stone® by Boral® Adds Four Distinguished New Products to Portfolio 

Cutting-edge colors and textures meet the tastes and preferences of today’s consumers 

Atlanta (April 30, 2014) – The Cultured Stone® by Boral® manufactured stone line has expanded by adding four striking new offerings that enhance an already varied selection of colors and textures designed to meet the demands of today's consumers. A leader in the manufactured stone veneer industry for more than 50 years, Boral works with architects, builders, designers and master colorists to deliver innovative products that add value and maintenance-free performance while helping to protect the environment.

Two beautiful additions to the portfolio are the Echo Ridge® Pro-Fit® Alpine Ledgestone and Echo Ridge® Dressed Fieldstone products, which contain weathered edges in an array of platinum, steel and bronzed greens reminiscent of the finest natural stone. The Echo Ridge® Pro-Fit® Alpine Ledgestone offers a rustic outdoor look, and its precise, rugged texture provides color and shadow creation for a variety of design opportunities. The Echo Ridge® Dressed Fieldstone also enhances a multitude of architectural designs, with its distinct texture and dazzling display of color. Initially launched in Country Ledgestone and Southern Ledgestone textures, Echo Ridge® product is sought after by both designers and consumers.

To complement Echo Ridge® products and other offerings in similar hues, Boral has created Nightfall® Hearthstones. The rich color of Nightfall® Hearthstones creates interior synergy with darker products in the portfolio, such as Black Rundle and Black Mountain®. 

In response to today's design trends, Sevilla™ Country Ledgestone has also been introduced to the product line. With its warm, brown earth tones, this gorgeous product provides a subtle blend of color that corresponds with consumer tastes. This new addition expands the current offering of the in-demand Country Ledgestone texture.

Cast in molds of natural stones and meticulously hand-colored, each Cultured Stone® by Boral® veneer texture is created with painstaking care and superb artistry to create the look and feel of real stone. Made of lightweight aggregate materials, the products are approximately one-quarter the weight of full-thickness stone, providing greater versatility since they can be adhered to most wall surfaces. Available in more than 100 colors and more than 20 textures, Cultured Stone® by Boral® veneers make it easy for architects to create custom looks. These stunning building solutions add beauty and curb appeal to any residence.

Manufactured in America using advanced and sustainable production methods, Cultured Stone® by Boral® veneers are beneficial to the environment as well as the economy. The products have a minimum of 54% recycled materials as validated by UL Environment™. They also meet the stringent GREENGUARD Gold standard issued by UL Environment™, which represents the most rigorous building product emissions criteria to date. In addition, the veneers hold the distinction of being the first in the industry to have been Green Certified by the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB).
