How Can I Elevate My Home With Cast Stone?

Cast stone is a manufactured type of stone that can be moulded in a variety of ways, read below to learn some of the ways you can create a grand entrance with cast stone structures.

Pier Caps

Pier caps are a cast stone structure that sit on top of gate pillars or other structures. While they amp up aesthetics, they also have practical benefits. The caps are designed to help protect your structures from weathering, and they allow rainwater to run off easily, meaning less moisture impacts your stone structure. With a range of styles and finishes, pier caps can take your home from simple to sophisticated!

Stone Copings

Copings are similar to pier caps, in that they sit on top of walls, providing the same kind of protection from weathering. They can give a nice contrast to brickwork, giving your home a fresh look. The sloped design of stone copings allows rainwater to roll off easily, giving your walls better protection against the weather.


If you’re looking for a grand way to improve your home, cast stone fountains are an elegant detail you can add to your property. Water features, such as fountains, can bring an element of opulence to your home. With a range of circular, square and rectangular designs, you can find the perfect fountain to suit your home, creating an elegant and peaceful entrance!

Stone Planters

Stone planters and troughs also offer a grand aesthetic for your home. These planters age over time, as a result of weathering, but this can bring an attractive, vintage look. With many intricate and simple designs, you can incorporate cast stone planters in your driveway or garden to ramp up your property value and aesthetic!


Porticos are another way you can incorporate a cast stone structure into your home. Porticos provide a comforting and useful front entrance to your home. Giving you a sheltered area outside of your home, porticos can create a warm and inviting look, while giving you a cosy front entrance!
