When it comes to concrete fence and wall systems for residential, commercial, industrial, and public works projects, you want to find the best solution that combines protection, durability, and beauty all-in-one. While some wall and fence materials such as wood or stone may look attractive, they fall short when it comes to the superior security and longevity that AFTEC precast concrete fence systems provide.
One of the aspects that sets AFTEC apart is that we can customize our precast walls and fences with beautiful textures that resemble natural stone, but which also offer a range of benefits that natural stone does not. Let’s compare concrete walls and fences with stone texture versus natural stone fences.
Benefits of Stone Texture vs. Natural Stone
Natural stone is beautiful and adds a lot of character to a property when used in walls and fences. Natural stone may be a better option for smaller DIY residential projects for these three benefits:
- Made from natural materials
- Traditional style
- Can create stone retaining walls without mortar
Natural stone, when being considered for larger projects, falls short of concrete walls and fences because stone masonry is:
- More expensive
- More labor intensive
- Harder to maintain
- Not as effective for large walls and fences
- Deteriorated faster
Concrete, on the other hand, offers numerous benefits for larger residential, commercial, and industrial projects. These advantages include:
- Less labor intensive
- Attractive versatility
- Durability and longevity
- Little-to-no maintenance
- Withstand extreme weather and environmental conditions
While it does not have the natural stone appeal on its own, AFTEC can customize any concrete wall or fence with a texture resembling natural stone, delivering the aesthetic of stone combined with the strength and durability of concrete. Better yet, the texture is applied to both sides of the wall system, offering beauty and elegance in all directions.
