Carolina Ledge

Carolina Ledge: a true classic ledgestone

One of today’s most popular choices for decorative building material is stone. What was once only achieved with natural quarried stone by skilled stone masons is now readily available in a manufactured stone. Using molds created from actual stones and mineral pigments replicating Mother Nature, today’s man-made stone veneer is almost imperceptible from the real thing.

Carolina Ledge manufactured stone veneer is the epitome of a true classic ledgestone.  Utilizing a wide variety of stone profiles sets Carolina Ledge apart from other ledgestones. Consisting of predominately linear, irregular shaped stones, some with rugged, intricate textures and prominent ledges are what gives Carolina Ledge its unique personality. The shadows created by the multi-dimensional ledges create visual interest that is always changing with the shifting light.

Carolina Ledge rugged, rusticated elegance

Carolina Ledge is equally at home in a variety of design applications. The man-made stone veneer has a classic, time-honoured presence that is perfectly suited to a rustic setting such as a cottage by the lake or a chalet in the mountains. Its long, linear stones also evoke a more modern, edgy feel, especially when configured in a tight-fitted application – think downtown condo or upscale bistro.

Mortar plays a big part in the decorative versatility of Carolina Ledge. Individual stone veneers placed piece by piece take on an entirely different design depending on the choice of mortar application. A grouted joint or over-grouted joint will take on a rugged, rusticated elegance.

Selecting the right colour of Carolina Ledgestone can be as simple as taking cues from your surroundings. An outdoor kitchen or a basement wine cellar may call for the warm earth tones of nature, whereas, a condo fireplace or a feature wall for a home theatre may call for the cool tones of a contemporary environment.

The use of man-made stone to bring the authenticity of natural stone to a project means that it is now an affordable luxury for anyone wishing to incorporate a stone feature into their next design project.
