Also known as Ashlar Block, cast stone veneer has been used in building construction for decades to provide contrasting color and texture to fine masonry architecture. Melton Classics offers the design professional a wide array of colors, textures and shapes for their cast stone ashlar block or cast stone veneer needs.

Comparison – Cast Stone Veneer vs. Precast Concrete
Each individual MeltonStone Cast Stone ashlar block is inspected throughout the manufacturing process to make sure it has the quality, detail, finish and appearance our customers have come to expect from fine cast stone architectural products by Melton Classics. MeltonStone Cast Stone veneer can be supplied with a “sugar cube” like finish that looks like cut limestone which distinguishes its appearance from the more rough and pitted finish normally associated with precast concrete or wet cast concrete. MeltonStone veneer is also available with rock or split face surfaces for a more rustic appearance.
The dense finish of Melton Stone Cast Stone is more resistant to weather and dirt, has lower moisture absorption and has a smooth granular finish with no pits or bug holes. MeltonStone also resists spalling and weathering of its surface so it retains its appearance through decades of exposure to the elements. Reinforcements can also be added to MeltonStone to provide the structural advantages of precast concrete with the beauty,
uniform surface quality and durability of natural stone. MeltonStone Cast Stone is cast to the highest quality standards to meet and exceed the stringent specifications set forth by the Cast Stone Institute.
