Richard & Sheri Garza

Richard and Sheri Garza purchased Forest Stone May 5, 1995. Forest Stone is committed to providing customers, home owners, contractors and masons the same quality service and Castlite™ products that we have offered for the past 29 years. Forest Stone is committed to their customers offering custom services and quality products.

Forest Stone products are professionally crafted artificial reproductions of actual stone and brick. We take special pride in the authentic appearance of our products. Each mold is taken directly from the natural stone itself and faithfully reproduces every hairline fissure and detail of texture. Forest Stone offers you the richest, most elegant artificial stone veneer finish you can choose, adding a touch of class to set your home or office apart from the crowd.

Castlite™ Is Economic

  • Behind a wood stove or on a commercial building, Forest Stone products can save you money.
  • Being lightweight(5 to 10 Lbs. per sq. ft.), there is no need for extra expensive structural support. Masons can install many more feet of cast stone per day than real rock, reducing labor costs.
  • Do-it-yourselfers save 50% or more over the cost of installing full thickness natural stone.
  • Once your stone is installed, there is no upkeep - just year after year of trouble free beauty. We use nature’s own colors - iron oxide - the mineral dyes which color real rock. Solid beauty and no maintenance

Castlite™ Offers More Our products are manufactured and installed totally with noncombustible materials. Cast stone is an economical way to increase the value of your property, plus add weatherproofing, sound-deadening, fire resistance and insulating factors as well.

Castlite™ Adds Depth - We are particularly proud that our extra rugged line of Driftstone has far more depth than any other cast stone we’ve seen. Our stones protrude up to 6 inches out from your walls, giving the true shadow play of real rock.

Castlite™ Has Raked Backs- Our rough raked backs on most of our stone grip and stay up because the deep grooves provide a mechanical bond as well as a mortar bond, meaning many times the adhesion of any flat backed cast stone. Rough raked backs make common sense.

Castlite™ Offers Size Variety- In every line, our stone sizes vary from tiny to huge, so we can please the smallest fireplace customer or the largest commercial customer. We have plenty of small whole rocks to make your installation easier and your finished job more realistic and beautiful.

Castlite™ Has Texture- Every convolution, undercut, and grain of the original rock is reproduced in our products from our subtly fissured slate to our deeply eroded Driftstone; we personally pick master stones with the most exciting shapes and textures. There is a BIG difference in this department between cast stones - - compare before you buy.

Castlite™ Gives You CHOICE- We have a variety of styles and colors to choose from.

Castlite™ Has Less Repetition- We literally have hundreds of different molds- Every tenth stone is not a repeat. And since every stone is individually colored, the "exact" rock can never appear twice.

Castlite™ Offers CustomColors- YES! We still do custom colors in an off the-rack world.
