Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Dawsonville, GA - Mar 15, 2016 - Georgia’s leading manufacturer of cultured stone products has partnered with one of America’s biggest online home improvement retailers to provide companies, and home owners, with easy access to their exciting eco-friendly product, Go-Stone®.
Engineered to make installation extremely easy and seamless, Native Custom Stone’s affordable Go-Stone® panels were created with the do-it-yourself market in mind. They are popular in kitchens and bathrooms, and for feature surfaces and accent walls in living areas. All you have to do is keep the panels level and stagger them for a realistic effect. No foundation required, the panels adhere to almost any substrate using the proper thin-set for interior applications, and type S mortar for exterior applications.
We are excited to partner with one of the nation’s largest online home improvement retailers. BuildDirect will open several new markets nationwide for distribution of our products.
Whether you are a committed DIY enthusiast or a total novice who has never tackled a building or decorating project before, the new partnership between Native Custom Stone and BuildDirect.com will enable you to plan your project, and order the tools and materials needed, from the comfort of your living room. BuildDirect.com offers free shipping of samples if you aren’t sure what you want; and once you’ve decided, they will deliver your order to your front door.
Announcing the partnership, Billy Bennett, owner of Native Custom Stone and creator of Go-Stone®, said: “We are excited to partner with one of the nation’s largest online home improvement retailers. BuildDirect will open several new markets nationwide for distribution of our products.”
Launched just over two years ago, Go-Stone® is made from waste rubber extracted from discarded tires, and transformed into look-alike stone panels using the latest “crumb rubber” technology. Since a large percentage (around 78) of the more than 242 million tires discarded in the US every year are illegally dumped or thrown onto landfills, this makes the product one of the most environmentally friendly options on earth.
Go-Stone® panels are packaged in units of five, totaling five square feet and with 40 vertical inches of flat finished edges. Corner pieces are packaged with four linear feet in a box. Accessory pieces intended for use around plug points, light switches and so on are also available. All may be cut to size with a drywall or wet-cut saw if required.
Installation of panels requires minimal tools and no specialist skills. In addition to a saw you’ll need a torpedo or small spirit level, a ¼” notched trowel, a tape measure, and tile adhesive. All these items are also available from BuildDirect.
The environmental bonus is that every box of Go-Stone® you purchase represents a tire that would likely have ended up in landfill.
