Good Stone Alternative?


Does anyone have some experience with all those new types of 'stone' out there? I'm considering something like Easyrock or Nextstone because they're lightweight and I get some bonus rvalue out of them, but I'm just concerned with the look. There's a few other companies that do similar stuff, so I figured someone here may have used such a product before and can give me advice! I want to cover up my aging parging and I would love a stone look, but I think it would be way too pricey to do such a thing in natural or cultured stone...

I'll provide a few links if that's ok, so that you know what I am referring to:
http://easyrockproducts.com
http://www.nextstone.com

I live in Canada, so we get some pretty harsh weather here too. So please, if you have any opinions or experience it will help me out!

Thanks!

It looks like fake crap to me, but I don't work for them like you do.

Wow, you're helpful! I know it doesn't look quite up to par with the real deal, but for what I want it for I think it would do the trick. You obviously haven't any experience with it, so why are you even responding?

Because clowns like you who join a forum and immediately start touting products are generally shills for the companies, they've, "discovered".
