Stone Exteriors - Sophisticated and Durable
Whether you go with stone or stamped concrete veneer, they will all provide excellent protection for your home with aesthetically pleasing looks.
ABOUT STONE MASONRY
Why consider stone masonry for the exterior of your home.
A stone façade for your home can convey both modern sophistication and old-world charm. A stone home instantly brings to mind a rustic house on a hillside, surrounded by dense forest. Luckily, these days you can add the style of sophistication of a stone exterior to your home no matter where it is!
Hard materials such as stone as stone have been used to build homes for thousands of years, and withstand the test of time. There are stone buildings still standing hundreds of years later. It’s a classic look that’s tough, weather-resistant, insulating, and low maintenance.
Over the past few decades, other materials have started taking the place of stone. Vertical stamped concrete and stamped stone veneer are the newer alternatives that closely mimic stone in many ways. These new stamped concretes are nearly as tough and durable yet can look and feel just the same with the added benefit of being cheaper, lighter and easier to install.
Whether you go with stone or stamped concrete veneer, they all provide excellent protection for
your home with aesthetically pleasing looks.
A Finish That’s A-stone-ishing
Stone is a naturally occurring mineral and is stronger than any building material that you can choose from. It is highly resistant to anything Mother Nature can throw at it, and is almost
impervious to damage.
Stone is also considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing materials to clad with, giving your home a sophisticated and modern high-class flare. It can be customized to several different shapes, sizes, and colors. Using stone can add value to your home, and designers will sometimes use it for a portion of a home as a feature.
Faux Is Fabulous
Stone has been the staple building material for centuries, but the higher cost of materials and difficult installation has reduced usage. Stamped vertical concrete and stamped stone veneers have become hugely popular in the last few decades, creating very realistic alternatives that mimic both the form and function of stone. Concrete is almost as tough and durable as stone but has half the weight, making it much more versatile. Stamped veneers can be installed in places that heavy stone could not be used. Endless design possibilities give you the freedom to mimic natural materials or create your own preferred patterns.
No matter what you choose, stone and stamped concrete will give you a tough, sustainable, and eye-catching finish. Installation of these materials can be quite tricky, and poor masonry can damage the property, look bad, and be costly to fix.
