Procter Cast Stone: the Perfect Material for Self-build Projects

​Of all its many applications, cast stone is arguably especially well suited to self-build projects, be they renovation, extension or new build –  and for both traditional and contemporary style.  Cast stone’s strong suitability for self-build is largely because:

  • Architectural features can be designed and manufactured much more cost-effectively than cut stone, but the visual effect is just as good
  • For renovations and extensions, cast stone features can be manufactured to match existing stone features – and again more cost-effectively
  • Although cast stone is often associated more with traditional designs, it is equally appropriate for adding striking details to contemporary properties

At Procter Cast Stone we offer a free guide for using cast stone for self build projects.  ‘The Self-Builder’s Guide to Cast Stone ‘ explains what this exceptionally versatile construction material can be used for, how it is manufactured and how easy it is to work with – both in terms of design and installation.  Illustrated with a wealth of colour photographs, the guide benefits from a table of applicable British Standards and Eurocodes, as well as listing sources of further information.  Download cast stone guides or request a copy by telephoning us or mail Procter Cast Stone.
