I was wondering because a contractor quoted us a price on Owens Corning and now is telling us to pick our style and color from Boulder Creek. So I was wondering if there was a difference in the two brands as far as quality and price. Just want to make sure there is not something we don't know about.

Both manufacturers you've listed make comparable quality material. Owens owns the name "Cultured Stone" and has been offering product for the longer time by far. As stated above Boulder Creek is made in Minn.

Mfg. stone has become very popular and many companies make the material. The price for the material has become very consistent because of that competition. Owens & Boulder make good products. Find the pattern you like best for your house. There is not much of a price difference between the two for comparable styles of material.

We had the Boulder Creek brand put on the front of our home last June, the Montana Ledgestone pattern. We love it. After looking at several brochures of cultured stone patterns they all began to look similar. The retailer gave us a list of addresses they had delivered that pattern to so we could see it on the homes.

My vote is for the Boulder Creek. I have worked with it several times and it is always the first I look to when I get a cultured stone provect. Addmittedly it was the first brand I dealt with so I could be biased.

What he said! It is a difference of a Kleenex or facial tissue, same type of product, different name. Either will perform well as long as it is applied correctly.

From a builders standpoint, I often give people different samples then I had originaly figured. Many reasons, I talked with a different rep on one day, one product had more of what I thought you were looking for, better delivery schedule, etc. Don't read more into it then you need to.

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
