Procter Cast Stone Publishes Free Cast Stone Installation Guide
Procter Cast Stone, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of standard cast stone products and bespoke designs, has published a free Cast Stone Installation Guide. This will benefit builders, contractors and self-builders, and also quantity surveyors who want a better understanding of the installation procedures.
Working with cast stone is generally the same as working with quarried stone, but there are some detailed differences that need to be taken into account in order to maximise the benefits of this versatile construction material.
The guide to installation introduces cast stone and the manufacturing process, then provides more detailed information about delivery and unloading, inspection, site storage and site handling. Considerable space is devoted to the actual installation process, with advice and guidance relating to cutting, fixings, mortars and protection.
In addition, the guide to installing cast stone discusses aftercare and maintenance because although this is not strictly part of the installation process, installers often become involved in these activities. Other topics covered by the guide are repairs, replacement and fixing to cast stone. Finally, there is also a useful section for sources of further information.
Procter Cast Stone believes that its new Cast Stone Installation Guide is the most comprehensive publication of its type. It contains a wealth of information, yet it is available free of charge as a PDF file on request, as a download from the company’s website, or the text can be read online.
