Ventura Cast Stone, Inc.
Utilizing state of the art techniques and
materials, combined with old world craftsmanship our cast stone columns,
lightweight precast columns, GFRC columns, pool coping, historic restoration
parts and other precast products
are not massed produced without any character in a factory, as most other companies
manufacture them. Our product is hand cast onsite
in our own original textures and designs based on the classical formal cast stone profiles of Tuscany
and Southern France, the informal precast concrete stone profiles of the
Mediterranean and even the aged and weathered Cantera or Adoquin stone of old
Mexico. We offer a design service and can design your project from scratch or
from your plans. If you are just researching a future project we can recommend
experienced architects who are also familiar with precast and cast stone.

|Low toxicity raw materials: Cement, sand, glass fibers natural coloring pigments and water ( We can also use waterproofing additives)|

|Our green GFRC is supplied integrally colored with standard textures to eliminate VOC's during painting (Our products come in 10 standard integral colors)|
|Non-combustible GFRC meets ASTM E136|
|Lightweight foam coated precast products use 80% less material than precast|
We can also use recycled aggregates such as recycled concrete, recycled
water, and fly ash.
To achieve our sanded finish, we use natural sand and water which is used like sandpaper to remove the smooth cement surface and expose the aggregates, we also re-use the by-product of
this procedure (i.e. cement, sand water).
We like green GFRC because it produces a very lightweight and durable material that is easy to install. The end product is very strong and may be installed as thin as 3/4" which is practically impossible to do with any other concrete or cementitious material.
Green GFRC technology is considered environmentally friendly and very appealing when considering green building alternatives. Green does not only mean environmentally friendly but also sustainability, the more a product will last the more sustainable it is, also counting toward greenness are amount of waste generated during the process, how much of the ingredients are recycled material such as fly ash and how much maintenance will it need during the life of the product.
In addition to being strong and lightweight, green GFRC also offer a greater variety of option and finishing styles, another great advantage is that the materials very strong and not brittle like concrete which allows us to install anywhere without much risk.
