What is Fiberglass?
Most of our fiberglass products are made with true fiberglass. Fiberglass is a polyester resin that has fiberglass strands or matting in it. This is the same material most boats and cars are made out of today.
Almost all the polyester resin, or more simply polyresin, statuary you find today in stores are polyresin only and are cast about 1/16” to 1/8” thick. These statues will often break in the winter months due to the freeze and thaw cycle. Our products are a true fiberglass product and are cast 1/4” to 1/2” and even thicker where needed to withstand the outdoor weather year around.
Our fiberglass products are available in 11 finishes. All of the finishes can be used both indoors or outdoors. Please note that all finishes are hand done and will vary from piece to piece.
What is Fiber Stone?
Fiber Stone (Not to be confused with Fiberstone - one word) products are the same as our fiberglass products, but with one major difference — sand and small rocks are added into the mix when it is in liquid form. This gives the piece a rough and sandy texture which makes it look and feel like real stone. Fiber stone is also a mixture of colors and not a Mono tone. These different colors give the product a very sophisticated look of weathered age. These products in fiber stone are done so well that to look at him you would think they were stone. Even when you feel the surface of fiber stone you will still think it's stone. Fiber stone has a beauty all its own.
We have ten different fiber stone finishes to choose from. All of these finishes have all the benefits of fiberglass in that they can be used both indoors or outdoors. Fiber Stone is so durable that pots and planters can be filled with dirt and left outdoors year round. No more hauling your planters in every winter! However, if used outdoors, it is recommended that a small drain hole be drilled into the bottom of the pot or planter. This can be done at the factory by request when it is being made. Just let us know with your order and we can have a drain hole drilled for you. As with fiberglass all pieces are hand finished and will vary from piece to piece.
Mounting options are available for both fiber stone and fiberglass statuary and pedestals. The factory can add on hardware such as mounting bolts and flanges to keep your statuary secure. If you have a mounting question or a problem you need to work out please contact us. We would be glad to help you with any questions you may have and to go over your options.
