By Your Fiderio Expert Sep 12, 2014
If you are seeking to make your home appear more beautiful and illustrious, sometimes it is a good plan to start with the exterior of your home. When considering renovations to your home, it’s smart to make improvements that add visual appeal as well as value to the property. CT homeowners typically choose a type of siding based on cost, aesthetics, insulation, maintenance required, etc. The following article will discuss the benefits of stone siding to help you decide if it is right for your home.
More Flexible Than Natural Stone
Stone veneer is far more flexible than natural stone and can be installed in all sorts of places around the home, including both interior and exterior walls. Many CT homeowners like to accent their fireplace or stairwell with stone veneer in addition to installing it outdoors to complement their vinyl siding.
Variety of Designs
Because stone veneer is fabricated out of a natural stone mold, it can be manufactured in a variety of different designs and colors to meet your specific needs. Natural thin stone veneer is available in a wide variety of styles and colors. The most prevalent shapes on the market include fieldstone, ashlar, and ledge stone. Fieldstone is characterized by irregular shapes set in a random pattern. Ashlar styles are composed of larger, rectangular pieces with square edges and flat surfaces. Ledge stone typically consists of longer pieces of stone with varying heights and depths.
Blending or mixing several types of stone together can achieve a distinctive look. Natural thin veneer also can be trimmed during the installation process to obtain precise detailing objectives. This variability allows your more control over what the finished product will look like once it is installed.
Boost Curb Appeal
The look of stone siding is rustic and warm, which will boost your home’s curb appeal. While the upfront price tag on siding and installation might seem high, there is very limited maintenance cost. Your exterior will keep its gorgeous look for years to come, with very little additional investment. Stone siding is durable, even during extreme temperature changes, making it a better choice than vinyl or wood siding.
Green and Eco-Friendly
Stone veneer panels result in less heating and cooling costs, while helping you contribute to the preservation of natural resources. Modeled after the unique patterns and colors found in nature, stone veneer brings consumers and builders an affordable and environmentally conscious way to achieve the look of organic materials.
Greater Installation Ease
The greatest installation advantage among stone veneers is that they can be installed on nearly any kind of surface. This includes drywall, concrete, wood and metal. Furthermore, they can be easily cut with basic tools like a masonry saw. The installation requires conventional woodworking tools and the use of some adhesives.
