Why Stone Veneer Adds Value to Your Home

Stone veneer siding is a popular choice for homeowners looking to add a touch of elegance and durability to their homes. Natural stone veneer siding is available in a variety of styles, colors, and textures, making it a versatile option for any home. A Cost vs Value report by Remodeling Magazine shows that upgrading a home’s exterior with natural stone veneers can increase its overall value.

One of the benefits of stone siding is its durability. It is resistant to weathering, moisture, and pests, making it a long-lasting option for homeowners. It is also fire-resistant, which is an important consideration for homeowners in areas prone to wildfires.

Stone siding is also low-maintenance. It does not require painting or staining, and it is easy to clean with a pressure washer or hose. However, it is important to note that the grout between the stones may require occasional maintenance to prevent water from seeping through.

Another advantage of stone siding is its energy efficiency. It provides excellent insulation, helping to keep homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This can lead to lower energy bills and a more comfortable living environment.

Overall, stone siding is a beautiful and durable option for homeowners looking to enhance the look and value of their homes. It is a long-lasting, low-maintenance, and energy-efficient choice that can provide years of enjoyment and protection.

What is Exterior Stone Veneer Siding?

Natural Stone veneer siding is made from fieldstone. Fieldstone is a natural stone that has formed as a result of glacial activity or has broken from larger rocks. The rough, irregularly shaped pieces of stone lay on the surface of fields and must be removed by farmers or others seeking to use the land. Fieldstone is often collected and used for construction.

Thin veneer siding takes fieldstone and splits and saws it to create sawn pieces of stone that are about 1” thick. The stone is then attached to a structural wall on either the interior or exterior or a building or as part of fireplaces, chimneys, walls, backsplashes, and more to create the look of natural stone, but with less weight and easier installation.

Thin Veneer vs. Manufactured Stone

Thin veneer stone siding is cut or split from real stone that has formed over thousands of years, and it is incredibly durable and naturally beautiful.

Manufactured stone is a man-made product that is a combination of cement, stone aggregates and coloring, and is intended to look like natural stone. Since they are manufactured, there may be repetitive patterns or duplicates that are impossible in natural materials. Painted manufactured stones can chip over time or upon impact, to reveal the manufactured cement underneath.

Benefits of Thin Stone Veneer Siding

Doesn’t Require a Foundation

Unlike building veneer, thin stone veneer doesn’t require a foundation to support its weight. It can be installed directly on the structural wall, even over wood siding and concrete, to create the look of stone building veneer but without the weight.

Lower Transportation Costs Than Full Thickness Stone

A lighter product costs less to transport, so at roughly one-fourth the weight of full thickness stone, thin stone veneer is less expensive to transport.

Available in Different Sizes, Styles, and Colors

Our thin stone veneer is available in Mosaic, Ledgestone, Ashlar, Square & Rectangular, Round and Stacked Stone shapes and in 10 unique color choices that include variations of browns, whites, tans, grays, blues, and pinks.

Some shapes are offered as individual thin veneer stones while others come in flat stone panels. Stacked stone panels feature stones that are cut, fit, and glued together in an interlocking pattern and with no mesh backing.

Our products come with pre-cut corners that create the appearance of full thickness stones, but without the need to cut and fit them yourself.

Harsh Climate Approved

Natural stone is highly durable and perfect for exterior projects. We developed the Stoneyard® Harsh Climate Approved (HCA) rating system to evaluate the durability and integrity of the stones and create thin veneer lines that are suitable for use in water features, near salt water, and in areas that must stand up to blowing sand and other harsh weather conditions.
