I heard about an exterior wall covering that simulates the look of a natural stone wall. It is something I am told that can adhere to the exterior concrete basement walls for an alternative look to that of just the plain concrete. Has anyone heard of such a product. If so, I'm looking to find out what it is called so I can start some research.

I assume that you are talking about manufactured stone. It is a concrete based product that it about 1-2" thick.

There are a large number of styles and colors.

Cultured Stone is one brand name, but it also a generic name for the product.

Elderado (sp?) Stone is another brand.

Some googling should get you more info.

Thank you for the reply. I had found some information on the manufactured stone; however, that wasn't the impression I got on this particular product. As it was explained to me, it must be some sort of "sheet" of a vinyl/laminate of some sort that has a pattern of stone on it (not meant to simulate the real stone look). I've seen specialty vinyl siding that is made to look like natural materials such as brick and stone, but that's not the same thing either.

Perhaps what I'm invisioning or my interpretation doesn't exist.
