Stone Accents

Stone veneers are added to either internal or external walls to give the impression of a solid stone wall. Veneers are often employed where a full stone wall is cost prohibitive or impractical. They also have the advantage of being low maintenance and very versatile and can tolerate a wide variety of climate conditions.

Fireplaces - Fireplaces are constructed out of many types of stone, from marble to granite, limestone and river stones, but are commonly made from cast stone and cultured stone veneers as well. Stone fireplaces can be ornately carved, reminiscent of Victorian styles, made into Tuscan or Mediterranean styles, or can simply be a stone wall and floor on which a wood burner sits.
   
Counters - Kitchen and bathroom counters are stone accents that are most often created from marble or granite. These surfaces are not only aesthetically pleasing but provide a nonporous, hygienic and easy-to-clean surface. Cast-stone countertops are also very popular as they provide the same benefits as natural stone, but are less expensive.
   
Doors/Arches/Windows - Stone accents can transform an ordinary window, door or arch into an architectural feature in a home. Post Oak Construction can help you create unique windows and arches that are as popular as window and door surrounds made from carved or inset stone.
   
Columns - Columns are popular stone accents that add an old-world charm to a house. Marble and limestone are the stone of choice for columns, but many cast-stone and cultured-stone columns are available at a reduced cost. Stone columns most often are featured at entrance ways and can vary in design from traditional Greco-Roman Corinthian and Doric columns to sleek modern-style columns.
   
Patios/Stairs - Outdoor patios and stairs can be made using stone as an added architectural accent. Marble and granite are common patio stones, as are limestone and sandstone. Patios and stairs made from stone are durable, easy to clean, low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing; cast-stone or cured-stone alternatives provide all of the same benefits, without the high cost.
