Todd Kay of Kay’s Custom Designed Masonry took an already elegant barn and 3-car garage to the next level by adding natural stone veneer to its foundation. Using natural stone on a foundation versus faux stone veneer (made from cement) is an important choice. Natural stone veneer can be applied right down to grade and will withstand repeated frost, soaking rains, snow, and extreme heat. Since it is split or cut from natural stone from a quarry, and applied with a moisture barrier, the stones will remain adhered to the cement foundation and will not change color after repeated exposure to the blazing sun.
In this stacked stone foundation, the homeowner chose Stoneyard Oyster Bay Ashlar, one of our natural stone veneer products. We especially love the way it looks with the garage doors and along the barn door side entrance.
