Science is an asset that always helps people in the long and short term. In this case scientific breakthroughs have made polyurethane into the saving grace for homeowners and business owners who want to remodel their place. Polyurethane can be made with a simple process by combining two chemical groups leading to a very versatile chemical which is then heated and hardened into a strong resin. This chemical compound has been used to create a plethora of different products. In fact it is used in hundreds of different products that we see everyday. It is fairly cheap to produce and can take any size or shape that the mold comes in.
The difference between imitation and real products is in the installation material cost, time, and labor price. The consistency of the pattern is better with stone veneer because you are avoiding the use of mortar and grout which has variations.
The veneer panels create a flowing and even design where as certain natural elements can be mismatched and uneven due to poor grout placement. Sometimes the real thing is just too problematic because it has so many setbacks.
The great thing about using faux stone and imitation products is that there is no way you could have a stone falling out of line or grout that was mixed incorrectly leading to runoff which in turn skews the pattern.
Science Saves The Day
Another great scientific advantage is the closed cell structure that allows faux stone products to become waterproof and UV proof. When polyurethane products become hardened in the oven the foam closes up its cells. This enables the product to be placed outside or inside in any climate. The polyurethane process does not take too long either because the molds hold the design that is needed it is simply a matter of pressing the resin together and going on from there. Most design problems can be taken care of with this product because of its flexibility.
Making the right decision for your home or business is important. Building up the area in which you choose to remodel is a tedious and special process. When most people hear of a new method which is an evolution of a traditional one they seem skeptical at first. Fortunately, when people use faux products they always love the end result and appreciate the great look it brings to their project without the hassle and mess of having a masonry workshop building stone pieces in their home or business.
