Cast stone has come a long way since Mrs Coade first manufactured imitation stone in the 1700s. Originally only used on the most prestigious properties. The material is now a mainstream building material specified and used by most of the UK's leading architects, contractors and house builders.

coadecast is an evolutionary material which is manufactured as a high performance wet cast architectural concrete. Advanced concrete admixtures and batching technologies allow the manufacture of products defined by crisp, clean and, most importantly, durable edges and corners. Low water absorption ensures supplied appearance is maintained far beyond that expected of traditional "semi dry" cast stone.

The material is specifically formulated to match our Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) products and can safely be used on the same buildings/elevations without any noticeable differences other than those expected with natural or traditional cast stone.
