Coral Stone Columns Enhance Key Largo Homes

Arriving at your Key Largo home in Monroe County by boat or car, the first impression starts with your property’s curb appeal. No architectural element says “tropical island welcoming,” like a coral stone column. At Simulated Keystone, we offer an array of column styles hand-crafted from local marine limestone to suit any tastes or budget. Some popular options include:

  • Fluted columns for a classically columnated look, whether holding up a screened porch or lining the driveway
  • Smooth, monolithic columns that convey natural island beauty in their simplicity
  • Columns featuring intricate rope or scrollwork carvings for ornate Old Florida charm

Beyond aesthetics, coral stone columns serve crucial structural roles. Supporting heavy overhead beams allows expansive covered terraces, invaluable for enjoying sunset cocktail hours even in rainy weather.

We customize columns in various sizes, tapers, and finishes. Sandblasting brings out the coral’s natural tones, while polishing creates a glowing lanai focal point. Interior columns are equally stunning, transporting the island spirit indoors.

Installation is our specialty. Foundations are expertly fitted to resist even the fiercest hurricanes. Mason level and align columns for balanced proportion. Once erected, a light pressure wash keeps coral looking luminous for decades. No painting is required—only enhancing scrubbing brings out the coral’s richness. Repairs are also rarely needed due to the stone’s strength.

Bookended paired columns flanking your address for an iconic Keys entrance will wow guests long before they arrive! Some opt for a cascading row down their mangrove-lined driveway. Another favorite is posing for photos between columns with a backdrop as lovely as your new home.

Outfitting your property with Simulated Keystone coral stone columns ensures timeless island grandeur. After all, no structure makes as profound a first impression on the scenic Overseas Highway.

Outdoor Living Gets an Upgrade with Coral Stone

Nothing makes a bolder first impression or sets a more relaxed island tone than coral stone floors. Whether indoors or out, their naturally textured beauty immediately transports homeowners to tropical shores, whether indoors or out. At Simulated Keystone, we offer various flooring options quarried from local limestone reefs and waters. Various hues, from creamy vanilla to rich chocolate milk, create calming, coastal-chic palettes.

Texture-wise, some popular styles include:

  • Smooth, monolithic slabs that flow like lapping ocean waves
  • Softly rippled tiles evoking sandy beaches
  • Tumbled fragments in organic, pebble-like mosaics
  • Large-format tiles with compelling veined patterns

We’ve installed coral floors in every room from foyers greeting guests to expansive great rooms opening onto porches. Bathrooms fare especially well – imagine steps leading into a stone-walled shower like walking into a sea cave! Polished variants remain slick under bare feet, while honed finishes provide subtle traction. All are resistant to moisture, making mop-ups a breeze. Over time, a light cleaning only enhances the aging effect. Although heavier than some options, proper installation ensures long-lasting reinforcement against subtropical elements. Movement joints prevent cracking from occasional settling.

Their legacy will stand generations after installation, continuing to transport owners’ everyday lives to sun-drenched tropical shores for decades to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

How expensive is coral stone compared to other materials?

While more costly than some options, coral stone’s timeless beauty and durability make it a wise investment. It retains value better than less durable surfaces and requires little maintenance beyond an occasional rinse. Using coral accent pieces thoughtfully throughout your property maximizes its coastal charm without breaking the bank. 

What is the installation process for coral stone floors, walls, or other applications?  

Our experienced masons start by preparing a sturdy substrate to support the stone over time. Then they carefully set each piece, whether floor tiles or wall panels, using a special bonding mortar. Colonnades or fireplaces require reinforced foundations. After the coral cures, they seal the stone to protect its luster and complete the look with customized grout lines.

How difficult is it to clean and maintain coral stone over time?

Coral stone stands up beautifully to coastal elements with almost no effort on your part. Simply rinse with a garden hose to remove dust or salt spray. Over decades, rain will keep it like new – the perfect low-maintenance material for island living. Should any lichen grow, a mild cleaner removes it without harming the stone’s patina. 

Does coral stone hold up well against the heat, humidity, and storms in the Florida climate?

As evidenced by millennia withstanding ocean waves, coral stone was made for Florida’s weather! Its composition makes it highly resistant to cracking or destabilizing. The porous material repels water, inhibiting freeze-thaw damage too. Professionally installed and sealed coral stone structures stay stunning for generations of enjoyment.

What styles or looks can be achieved through the use of coral stone columns, tiles, or other decorative elements?  

Coral stone’s diverse textures and colors allow countless coastal-inspired designs. Smooth columns classically frame porches while fluted versions exude old Florida charm. Mosaics mimic reefs while running bond tiles lay like lapping waves. Use accent pieces throughout for architectural flow between spaces, unifying indoor-outdoor living seamlessly with a relaxed island aesthetic.
