I think this fireplace definitely deserves a closeup. Look at the detail of this colored precast concrete. It's just stunning and the design is just timeless.
Working with precast concrete is like working with building blocks and when the budget gets tight, precast concrete helps make those building or remodeling expenses go down a little bit easier. The creative possibilities with this material are absolutely endless.
As you can see in this photo, precast concrete gives you the look of real stone but doesn't come with that high price tag of real stone. Not that I don't adore real stone, I do........but sometimes the budget just can't handle it and sometimes clients prefer the look a concrete fireplace surround.
Concrete can also be produced in just a few weeks where you may wait several months for carved stone.
