FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mississauga, November 24, 2008 - Stone Selex Chosen as Official Canadian Distributor for Canyon Stone's Manufactured Stone Veneer
Jerry Lebiedzinski, President of Stone Selex Inc. is pleased to announce that Stone Selex has signed an exclusive distributor agreement with Canyon Stone of Kansas, USA.
The agreement grants Stone Selex rights to sell Canyon Stone's manufactured stone veneer in Ontario, Quebec, London, Hamilton, Brampton, and the Maritimes.
"We're very proud of our association with Canyon Stone and the opportunity it gives us to share such a wide selection of quality artificial stone with the Canadian marketplace," says Mister Lebiedzinski. "This agreement further demonstrates the Stone Selex commitment to providing our customers with the best Faux Stone designs and other related products for the construction and renovation industry."
Mister Lebiedzinski offers these observations on the advantages of manufactured stone veneer over natural stone, particularly in fireplace construction where the product's lighter weight eliminates the need for structural reinforcing:
Manufactured stone designs perfectly matches with the appearance of natural stone.
Whether it's the rough-hewn look of fieldstone or the gentle contours of stream stone, quality manufactured faux stone designs, so perfectly emulates the look and feel of natural stone it can fool even experienced masons.
This remarkable achievement comes from using a formulation of Portland cement, natural aggregates, and carefully selected pigments in meticulously detailed molds modeled after natural stone. The result is a artificial stone design virtually indistinguishable from the natural stone.
Manufactured stone veneer is light weight.
Manufactured stone veneer typically weighs much less than natural stone, about two-thirds the weight of natural stone veneer and less than a quarter the weight of full-block natural stone. This provides significant savings in shipping and labor costs, as well as reducing the need for costly structural reinforcing.
Manufactured stone veneer is easy to install.
Thanks to its light weight and convenient sizes and shapes, with a little planning and attention to detail even weekend handymen can successfully install artificial stone veneer. All that's required is following the vendor's simple instructions and observing basic precautions.
Other than perhaps a circular saw with a masonry blade for cutting stones to size, there's no need for many of the heavy-duty power tools often required when working with natural stone. Standard hand masonry tools will do.
Manufactured stone veneer can be installed on virtually any wall.
Since its light weight eliminates the need for special footings and foundations and since it can be applied to any structurally sound wall surface, artificial stone veneer is perfect for fireplaces. You can now build a gas or even a wood-burning fireplace anywhere you can place a chimney, such as against an interior wall or even in the center of a room.

Manufactured stone veneer is durable and maintenance-free.
Reputable manufacturers of artificial stone provide a 50 year warranty on their product, but that's not the limit of the stone's life-expectancy.
Properly applied, quality manufactured stone veneer can be expected to last much longer, and can easily replace stone interiors and exteriors.
Manufactured stone veneer is safe for fireplaces.
Obviously, when constructing a wood or gas-burning fireplace, flammability of the building materials is a concern. By its very nature, manufactured stone is non-combustible. It contributes zero fuel and produces no smoke.
Manufactured stone are available in various designs, styles, textures, and colors, artificial stone veneer can emulate any natural stone. This gives you broad flexibility in designing a fireplace that perfectly complements your home and lifestyle, and is a replacement of stone designs.
Manufactured stone veneer is less expensive than natural stone and is a replica of original stone designs.
Using manufactured stone veneer saves you money in three ways. First, the product itself costs less than natural stone.
Second, because artificial stone veneer weighs so much less than natural stone, the cost to ship the stone to your job site -- which can be prohibitive for natural stone -- is much less.
Third, labor costs are usually lower, since manufactured stone veneer is lighter and easier to work with. Masons can install the product faster, saving both time and money.
