Date stones, plaques and name stones add character, interest and individuality to a property. They can be used on the gable end of a property, above a door surround or built into a wall where they will be a practical and decorative asset. Renovating an older property will often require a date stone, plaque or name stone to be replaced. Procter Cast Stone can accurately replicate the original date stones, plaque or name stone in terms of colour, detail and finish.Get a Quote
Given their nature, date stones, plaques and name stones are mainly bespoke. Having them produced in cast stone is much more cost-effective than natural stone. The detail required, be it words, numbers or a motif is fashioned within a mould by a skilled joiner rather than having to be chiselled by a stone mason. We use a state-of-the-art 5-Axis CNC Machine in our manufacturing process, enabling us to replicate an original or produce a new design with an extremely high level of detail and accuracy. The result is so realistic that most people will think they are natural stones.
At Procter Cast Stone, we take the greatest care of every order we receive, from carefully processing the enquiry, then production, or straight from stock, to delivering to site on the agreed date and using our own transport. Our expert in-house installation team will ensure that your cast stone features are handled and installed correctly, including checking measurements and fitting to the highest standards. Find out more in our detailed guide to handling, storing, installing and maintaining your cast stone fixtures.
