The Cast Stone Balustrade Manufacturing Process

When it comes to the manufacture of cast stone products, the quality, durability, strength, and cost effectiveness will vary from one manufacturer to another. If you've come across older buildings with a cast stone balustrade system that is dilapidated in a state of extreme disrepair, it is likely because of an improper manufacturing process.

What some architects and general contractors using cast stone in their projects may not know, is that not all cast stone products meet standards set by the ASTM (American Society for Testing of Materials) C1364. This minimum standard assures strength, durability, and the low absorption of water in the manufacturing process. Using a precast manufacturer that exceeds this standard, is very beneficial to your project. Working with a precast Manufacturer that has an APA Certified Plant assures these standards are met. It is your assurance that the cast stone products including the balustrade will maintain their stunning appearance along with preserving its tremendous load-bearing capacity as a safety railing and ability to survive hurricane force winds without deterioration.

With some minimal maintenance, the balustrade and other cast stone offer a cost-effective solution. The simplified and more rapid construction time of this resilient building material means increased productivity from a reduction in manufacturing and delivery time to the job site. Of course, durability means a long-lasting spectacular product that will reduce the need for expensive renovations.

Cost-Effective Cast Stone Balustrade Prices Without Compromising Design

When it comes to a cast stone balustrade to accentuate a luxury hardscape, patio, pool area, or building constructed with architectural precast concrete panels, colors, textures, and style should complement and enhance your upscale project. Cost-effective cast stone balustrade prices can be achieved with standard readymade systems that provide popular styles and can be installed in minutes. Although there is less flexibility for choosing textures, shapes, and design, the cost savings can be substantial. Choosing standard coordinated pavers, hardscape, columns, and other cast stone matched to the standard balustrade selection maximizes the cost savings for the project.

If lower cost standard balustrade does not meet the project's requirements, custom solutions provide many choices for color, texture, size, shape, and style customization. Whether for a resort, hotel, or luxury residential property, an industry leader in the manufacture of cast stone, will assist you with design ideas to assure colors, textures, and styles to complement and enhance your upscale project.
