Many Coloradans bring an environmental sensibility to their building or remodeling projects, and as a long-time building supplies distributor, Procoat Systems embraces and fosters that sensibility in the products they choose to represent in their Denver and Fort Collins showrooms. If our contractors have clients who are looking for an ecologically sound cultured stone veneer product for their Denver area project, Cultured Stone by Boral is the giant and innovator of this category of product. They are also one of the greenest choices to make when adding the look of cultured stone veneer to building projects.
Over the past 50 years, Boral has made over 750,000,000 square feet of their Cultured Stone veneer. All of that time Boral has sought to improve the resource efficiency of their manufacturing process. Since 2009, the company has reduced their waste stream to the landfill by 80 percent per ton of product manufactured. In fact, their Cultured Stone veneer product is now made of at least 54 percent of their pre-consumer waste stream, meaning that Boral has become very good at reprocessing their quality control rejections into finished end product.
Water is a precious resource throughout the west, and to that end, Boral has innovated an industry leading closed loop recycling system for their water consumption. When you recommend a Cultured Stone veneer to your environmentally conscious clients, you can reassure them that a real, green friendly effort has been put to work making the product.
Boral is so serious about their environmentally friendly bins fides for their Cultured Stone veneer product that they have striven for third party certifications proving that commitment. Cultured Stone veneer meets the indoor air quality standards of the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute and GREENGUARD Children & Schools initiative. In addition, their veneer is a National Green Building Standard, (NGBS), “Green Certified Product.”
The best part of Boral’s environmental efforts with their Cultured Stone veneer product line is that your clients give up nothing in the way of style choice or gorgeously finished veneer. There is literally a stone style and color variation to satisfy any client. Boral Cultured Stone comes in river stone, field stone, ledge stone and brick variations. There is also a full array of complimentary cap stones, hearth stones, key stones, lintels, receptacle covers, and other detail pieces to complete any look inside or out.
