Every February, we celebrate Presidents’ Day. Originally honoring the birthday of George Washington, our first President, the holiday has evolved to honoring the incumbent president and all who have served in that office. We like the pomp and circumstance of things presidential, the grandeur
of monuments, libraries, Air Force One and, of course, the majestic White House. What an amazing entryway to come home to each day!
Texas Governor, Ross Sterling, liked the White House so much that he built a $1 million replica of it in 1924 as the governor’s mansion (equivalent today is $14 million). Now known as the Ross Sterling Mansion, it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and last year sold at auction for a
steal of a deal at $2.8 million. (dollartimes.com and chron.com)
That’s a pretty penny to spend to get a presidential feel when you come home.

Concrete Craft® install faux stone siding with stamped and hand-carved
vertical concrete overlays that look like natural stone and masonry. In fact, our natural stone molds look so good, only you will know it’s not real.
You can cover cracked and deteriorating concrete with the look of authentic stone for a fraction of the cost of real. Our proven techniques and proprietary polymer overlays make 100% contact over wood, drywall, brick and concrete surfaces, ensuring years of worry-free performance.
A new façade of stamped and hand-carved concrete can bring the beauty of realistic stone textures and colors to your home, adding style and personality.
Faux stone finishes
designed to last
The durability of concrete is a big plus for exterior vertical surfaces, making our faux stone finishes highly functional. Concrete can withstand extreme temperatures and wet and dry conditions without the deterioration inherent with wood and vinyl siding or actual stones that can
weaken and fall out. Our continuous-surface vertical concrete overlays repel moisture and eliminate voids and gaps that can trap water, encouraging mold, fungus and insect infestation. Benefits include:
- No grout between stones to break down and wear away over time.
- Concrete is durable and easy to maintain, remaining beautiful for years.
- Durable finishes with fade-resistant, integral colors will not chip, stain or peel.
- Concrete resurfacing can cover up imperfections or revive worn-out vertical surfaces.
This impressive Mountain Drystack siding is a custom concrete overlay, hand-carved and custom-colored with a sealed surface that will withstand time and weather better than real rock or stone. You’ll love the lower maintenance required to keep your faux stone siding looking like new;
dust and dirt just hose away.
Concrete Craft’s artisans can easily replicate natural rock on vertical surfaces, making the elegance of authentic stone available to everyone. You’re not limited by local rock or stone; you can choose whatever style you want. You don’t have to worry about trucking in tons
of stone, weight-bearing issues, color matches and limited supplies. With our hand-carved and custom-colored concrete overlay designs, we can coordinate with your exiting home and landscape style and colors for whatever you need, from one wall to complete siding.
Some of the most popular vertical stone designs are European Fan, Random Sandstone, Orchard Stone, Mountain Drystack, Hand-scored Limestone, English Cobblestone, Hand-carved Stone, Hand-carved Castle Rock, brick and slate.
Along with entryways, vertical concrete overlays can transform any outside hardscapes such as retaining walls, seat walls, chimneys, raised flower beds, pillars and porches. With the affordability of faux stone façades, you can have the elegance of stone both indoors and out. Inside
vertical surfaces that can be enhanced and transformed include fireplace surrounds, accent walls, shower stalls, basement walls and backsplashes in the kitchen or bath.
