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.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
