Man-made brick or virtual stone wall treatments make a bold statement in your home

April 16, 2015

When it comes to man-made brick or virtual stone products for your home, there is no more debating whether natural products are better than synthetic or composite products

Man-made artificial snow may not be more beautiful or better to ski on than natural snow, but artificial snow solved a problem for skiers and ski resort operators who were often disappointed by not having the quantity of snow they needed at the time they needed it.  Similarly, a revolution has taken place over the past few decades where man-made products for our homes have been steadily replacing some natural stones, bricks, granite or wood because of some specific design issues or product requirements that consumers had over time, that went unfulfilled by the natural products.

This has led to the rise of various industries where products that mimic nature have been produced to meet consumer demand.  This can be seen in multiple industries where man-made products were once only offered by a fledgling or virtually unknown company such as several decades ago when the only options for decks seemed to be pressure treated wood, cedar or mahogany until the first composite decking product was launched.  Consumers now have multiple man-made options for decking.

Increasingly, today’s consumer demand for man-made or virtual products can only be met by multiple manufactures or brands and newer and more specialized product lines are being launched regularly by those manufacturers as time goes on.  Examples of these industries include manufacturers of:

  1. Brick veneer
  2. Manufactured stone products
  3. Composite decking
  4. Quartz and other countertops
  5. Faux wood products
