When compared to similar products using real raw materials, our products save money on the overall project costs. For most of our products, the initial costs are much less than the stone or metal products. There is a huge savings in the shipping and installation costs due to the lightweight design.
TerraCast® products also save in the long run: our products are maintenance free, so there will be no need to add maintenance to your annual budget.
A typical 40 inch stone planter retails for over $1,000.00. TerraCast®’s Resin 40” planter retails for around $500.00. That’s a 50% savings just in material cost. On top of that, fiberglass is not really made to be outside, and it certainly doesn’t have the durability and longevity of resin.
If a clay, concrete or natural stone planter weighs around 600 pounds; a comparable TerraCast® planter would weigh just 35 pounds. Factor in the shipping and handling, installation crew, and maintenance or repair, and the savings just add up.
This can all be done without compromising the integrity of your design. Our products look exactly like stone and metal fixtures, without the headaches.
A city-scaping project made with resin means more value for the money spent. This ultimately is savings for the taxpayers of your city.
Additionally, the care and maintenance for stone, metal and fiberglass (which are susceptible to mold, discoloration, pitting, cracking, rusting, chipping, and decay) are an ongoing cost that taxes the annual budget. Those materials have a shorter shelf life than that of resin, ultimately resulting in more expense.
Resin has durability and lasting beauty unrivaled by any other material. It’s impervious to weather elements, doggie piddling, and damage from accidental or intentional human abuse, be it a car accident or a graffiti-artist.
TerraCast®’s Resin is also vandalism and graffiti-resistant.
The non-porous nature of the Linear Low Density Polyethylene will not adhere to paint, spray-paint, gum, and other undesirables. These blemishes can be cleaned easily with the use of ordinary cleaners.
Most metal light poles usually have metal coverings for the electrical areas. It is common for these to be stolen and sold for scrap. TerraCast® products do not use metal, and therefore do not suffer the same damages.
The peace of mind that comes with using our products is an added bonus to the monetary savings. Your TerraCast® products will reduce your project budget while preserving the beauty, class and style of your pedestrian space for years to come.
