Stone veneer, or stone siding, is one option when building a home or making home improvements. But is it good enough for your property? Here are a few things to consider before installing stone veneer on your home or outdoor structures’ surfaces:
It will not have the same authentic look as natural stone. You might fool some people from a distance, but the difference becomes evident as you get closer.
Incorrect installation can result in trapped moisture or insufficient gaps around windows, doors, roofs, and vents. That water can then freeze and cause cracks in the faux-stone siding, leak through openings, and cause mold to grow.
Chemicals, like those used to clean siding, can damage the surface of stone veneer.
The more inexpensive stone-look sidings are painted (the color does not run the whole way through), and they can fade over time, leaving you with a dull surface that resembles natural stone even less than when it was first installed.
Manufactured stone veneer’s return on investment isn’t worth the cost. It costs much more than standard vinyl siding but doesn’t significantly enhance property value (like natural stone does).
Not only does stone veneer siding lack the natural beauty of real stone, but it also tends to cause more moisture and cracking problems than traditional vinyl siding when it’s not installed correctly.
We recommend doing lots of research before choosing stone veneer for your home or outdoor structures. Does the installer have lots of experience? Are you prepared to deal with leaks, cracks, and moisture problems?
Would you rather make an investment that will last and pay you back in increased property value? That’s the benefit of natural stone, and our expert masonry contractors are ready to deliver that to you!
