Concrete Results acquired the assets of Portland, Ore.-based Castia Stone, whose wet-cast veneer design includes a rain screen air space eliminating moisture build-up between siding and wall. The company will support licensed producers with multiple finish and texture offerings, product development, assistance in specifications, and a marketing program. Sister business InnovaCast Inc. will supply stone veneer molds.
As a precast veneer, notes Concrete Results President Mark Muratore, Castia Stone is technologically superior and extremely cost effective to install. [Plants] will be able to produce this material on existing equipment and supplement current offerings to contractors and distributors, he says. From a design standpoint, Castia Stone provides the architect with a creative material that can be used in combination with traditional sidings and provide greatly enhanced building designs.The stone veneer technology follows Concrete ResultsÌ recent acquisition of the Brescia paving strong surface treatment system.
