The Beauty and Efficiency of Stone Siding in Lee’s SummitSep 28, 2018
Sometimes you want to make a statement with your home siding, the kind that can’t be made with traditional siding boards. You want your Lee’s Summit home to stand out on your block. Stone siding has a classic elegance, but it’s rare enough to give your home a unique curb appeal. However, the beauty of stone siding isn’t the only benefit you can find when you have it installed on your home. Here are a few of our customer’s favorite benefits of stone siding…
The beauty of stone siding might not be the only benefit, but it’s certainly one that comes to mind when customers consider siding. Stone siding is unlike any other kind of siding. It’s a departure from the typical batten board or brick, but it has the rough, textured character for those who want something different than smooth stucco. It looks natural, classic, sturdy, and, it is. Even stone veneer, by Centurion® Stone, has the look and feel of natural stone- and that’s something your neighbors don’t see every day. Whether you want to give your home a facelift or boost its value before you move, stone siding is a great choice.
While natural stone is only so-so in terms of energy efficiency, stone veneer has been shown to have an exceptional thermal mass, which allows it to keep heat in your home during cold weather. As warm as Lee’s Summit can be during the summer, it can become very cold during the winter, so it’s important to stay comfortable indoors without increasing your heating bill. With energy efficient stone veneer siding, you’ll find not just beauty, but added comfort and energy savings during the winter.
Works with Other Siding Types
Stone veneer is lighter than natural stone and looks terrific when covering the entire home, but that doesn’t always suit everyone’s tastes… or their budget. Fortunately, stone siding doesn’t just look good on its own, but it can help enhance the appearance of other siding applications, like James Hardie Fiber Cement. Often, customers will ask for the front facade of their home to be done in stone veneer while the sides are covered in fiber cement. With stone siding, you don’t have to commit to just one material, and it adds character to your home to mix things up.
