5 Exterior Designs Using Stone VeneerFeb 28, 2023
Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal with Stone Siding
Bored with the standard lap siding offerings that you see on every other house? You may need something that makes a bigger impact. That’s where stone siding comes in. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we offer stone veneer siding from Centurion Stone and other leaders in the manufactured-stone industry. This siding has the look and feel of stone, made from natural stone patterns to give an authentic impression. You can use it as the prominent material when it comes to your siding or combine it with other siding elements to add more texture. Here are a few of our favorite designs using stone siding:
Your home’s facade is the key to your curb appeal. It faces the street, and it’s the first thing people see when they look at your home. That’s why many homeowners prefer to use stone siding for their home’s facade, to make a bold statement right away. A stone facade has a grand, classic look that’s hard to look away from, and it’s refreshing after rows and rows of lap board siding. When you use this exterior design, you can cover the rest of your home in James Hardie® fiber cement siding or vinyl siding.
Stucco and Stone
Want an appealing contrast of textures? Consider the rough nature of stone veneer against the smooth feeling of stucco siding. Stucco and stone siding are natural opposites and thus the perfect pair. You can remodel the façade of your home in stucco and stone, or use them as accents for special architectural features while cladding most of your home in fiber cement siding. Johnson County Siding & Window Co. takes pride in offering hardwearing acrylic stucco siding that stands up to heavy rainfall and high humidity. It’s also available in a practically unlimited array of colors.
Sometimes a little stone goes a long way. You can cover the majority of your home in James Hardie or Mastic vinyl siding, with little touches of stone veneer along the trim. This not only adds a nice contrast without being overpowering, but it draws the eye to the home’s entrance, as well as any flowerbeds or landscaping that you have along the base of the house.
Stone veneer adds an elegant touch to porch columns, and you can even clad your entire porch area with it. This will not only make your porch look more attractive and boost your home’s curb appeal, but your porch will be sturdier as well. Adding stone siding to your porch will bolster its weather resistance, and the earthy appeal of a stone porch will make you and your guests happy to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.
Many homes have done away with chimneys and fireplaces, but some still prefer the classic look and feeling. If you have a chimney, or you’re interested in installing a chimney, consider covering it in stone veneer. Like the stone trim, this is something that adds more of a subtle touch, but it can still add visual appeal to your exterior home design.
