Cast stone specialist Haddonstone, produces a range of cast stone porticos
Building a portico is one of the most effective ways of creating
an inspiring entrance into the house. Cast-stone specialist Haddonstone, produces
a range of cast stone porticos and door surrounds that are suitable for traditional,
classical and even contemporary homes.
Made from crushed limestone and with a surface texture similar to natural stone,
the cast stone portico components include classical capitals, dentilled cornices,
curved entablature and balustrading. The cast stone is available in different colours,
so finding a suitable contrast to brick or other commonly used building materials
Since cast stone weathers more quickly than natural stone, the portico will develop
a patina in just a couple of years and will soon blend in with existing stonework
on traditional or period buildings.
Available in five different designs, a typical cast stone portico costs around
£2500.00. For more information visit
