With over 30 years of experience, Renaissance Cast Stone creates stunning decorative cast stone for both private homes and commercial buildings across the state and region. Specializing in entries, surrounds, columns and pedestals, balustrades, crown molding, mantels, fireplaces and accents such as planters, pergolas, spheres and finials, the company strives to produce enduring beauty and timeless elegance for their clients.

Cast stone has been regarded as a top-quality building material for centuries, first used extensively in London before moving to America in the early 1900s. Valued for its beauty, permanence and versatility, cast stone offers many advantages over natural stone. The dense finish of cast stone is resistant to weather and dirt, while offering a smooth, stone-like appearance. While it can be precisely colored to simulate an almost limitless variety of natural stone, cast stone is extremely strong and durable, in addition to being breathtakingly beautiful. Reinforcement is added to provide the structural durability of precast concrete, with the beauty that rivals natural stone. For remodeling or restoration, cast stone also gives homeowners the ability to seamlessly replace deteriorated stone. 

Owner Genaro Arriaga opened the company 12 years ago, combining his love of cast stone and his extensive experience in construction. Genaro’s talent with mold making and his love for renaissance architecture helps his staff bring their client’s dreams to life. 

“We get our inspiration from drawings, paintings and statues from the Renaissance period,” explains Genaro. “To see the timeless beauty created during this period and being able to bring these creations to life for our clients is what got us started in cast stone.”

Renaissance Cast Stone offers a full line of cast stone products, but also specialize in fully customized pieces that will allow any client to design their dream home. From small cast stone restorations to large architectural precast pieces, Renaissance Cast Stone is dedicated to handling each project with an unmatched attention to detail.

“We begin each project listening to our client’s ideas,” explains Genaro. “We begin with hand drawings to form the idea on paper, from there our draftsman will create specification drawings to bring to the table and from there, we move into full production and installation. We pride ourselves in exceeding the homeowner’s expectations in every way, while bringing lasting beauty to their home.”

Renaissance Cast Stone serves the residential and commercial construction fields in the states of Oklahoma, North Texas, Southern Kansas and Missouri, Arkansas and can ship across the country.

Client testimonials

I had the privilege of meeting Genaro Arriaga 10 years ago. Shortly after meeting him, we hired him on our Rose Creek house build. The project included four fireplace surrounds, window surrounds and the first of its kind, cast stone corbels. After experiencing his process and product, I began referring Renaissance Cast Stone to all my builders and clients. When that home sold unexpectedly, we pulled him in again for a state-of-the-art front covered porch design that includes full cast stone surround and terrace columns. Anyone who has worked with Genaro and his tea, quickly discovers his artistic gift, but more importantly his care to you and your project. We at Shane Rickey Design are proud supporters of Renaissance Cast Stone & team. I am grateful to call Genaro a friend and colleague. - Shane Rickey, Shane Rickey Design
