Stone Siding Adds Natural Beauty with Less Weight and Cost

Dec 08, 2016

Stone has been used for home exteriors since caves provided the only shelter. From castles to cottages, stone has a long history of durability and natural beauty. That heritage continues today, and homeowners now have the option of stone veneer for siding.

The 2016 Cost Vs. Value Report from Remodeling Magazine showed that adding a manufactured stone veneer to your home is one of the best investments, providing a return of 92.9% when you sell your home.

Stone siding or veneer—also known as “architectural stone”, “manufactured stone”, and “man-made stone”—is a manufactured product, but retains the look and feel of natural stone. The product is shaped with molds filled with concrete, foam, or vinyl. With foam or vinyl, the veneer is painted after molding, to appear like stone—but with a fraction of the weight. This lightweight alternative to actual stone siding means you don’t need to reinforce your home’s foundation to bear the additional weight.

If you’re looking for a more uniform exterior, the stone siding can be manufactured as cladding, retaining the unique texture of natural stone, but cut into brick-like units.

Because it comes from a factory instead of a quarry, a manufacturer has control over the color, patterns, and texture. You get the consistency and volume you want at a more affordable price.

Stone veneer is also an easy-maintenance siding choice. Just spray it with a garden hose (not a pressure washer).

Centurion Stone offers more than 25 patterns of stone siding, with 200 color choices. In the Kansas City area, talk to the siding professionals at Johnson County Siding & Window Company to learn about your many siding options.
