Another remarkably versatile material employed to fabricate today's stone faux fireplaces is concrete,  which can be moulded or formed into virtually any size and shape and finished to duplicate the color and texture of nat-
ural stone.
 Whether your taste is traditional or contemporary . . . or any-
thing in between . . . concrete is an excellent material for a very realistic looking stone hearth.

One of the best concrete blends currently being used is  glass fiber rein-
forced concrete,
or GFRC.  Known for its light weight, high strength and durability, it can be moulded and finished to look like hand carved marble and limestone, as shown in the examples below.

If you prefer more of a rustic or casual look, concrete can also be stamped and finished to look like split face granite . . . . . . . or cut fieldstone.

Regardless  of which material or finish you choose for your custom or semi-
custom  hearth,  you  will  find a wide range of quality products and skilled artisans to give you the look of natural stone at a fraction of the cost. Not only will you save on the cost of the fireplace, itself, but due to the lighter weight  of  faux  stone  products,  labor  costs  will  be  considerably lower because you won't need any additional footings or structural reinforcement to support your new hearth.
