Choosing stone veneer siding over natural stone is often a good choice as it is easier to install, less expensive, very durable, and practically maintenance free. It is also available in a variety of styles, colors, and designs, allowing you to create an appearance for your Colorado Springs home that is customized according to your particular needs and specifications. When deciding which faux stone siding is best for your home, there are a few factors to consider.
Where You Intend to Use the Stone Siding
The first thing you want to think about when considering stone veneer siding is where you intend to use it. For instance, do you want stone siding for your home’s entire exterior or just part of it?
What about outdoor living spaces or driveway embellishments? Also, are there any interior areas that could be enhanced with faux stone, such as around entryways, fireplaces, or staircases?
Stone Siding Style
Once you know where you want to use faux stone siding, then you must decide on the style.
Seamless Choice offers options by top quality manufacturers such as Eldorado Stone and Sunset Stone, and the styles available to you include fieldstone, riverstone, brick veneer, cobblestone, ledgestone, and true stack, as well as several others. Each one creates a completely different look depending on the vision you have for your home and its surroundings.
Faux Stone Pattern
Another consideration when looking at faux stone is how often the patterns are repeated, which references how many times you see the same pattern and same stones over and over again.
Ideally, you want to use molds that aren’t repeated in the same 100 square foot space, giving you a more appealing interior or exterior design.
Rock Siding Colors
Just as you need to pick the rock siding style that best fits your family and your home, the same is true when it comes to color. Earth tones such as browns, reds, and yellows are a common request by Colorado Springs homeowners, as are stone veneer hues with a touch of grey, blue, or purple. To create the most natural look, you will want to choose stones with a variety of colors, just as they are found in nature.
Choosing the Best Grout Options
In addition to picking the right stone veneer siding, you also need to consider what style and color grout you want to use to complete your project and give it that finished look. The style of grout references how much grout is used and shows through, ranging from dry stack where you can barely see any grout to overgrout in which the grout is highly visible. Color of grout is another option as it comes in both lighter and darker shades to best complement the faux stone you have chosen.
Stone Veneer Siding Installation
The final consideration when it comes to stone veneer siding is installation. Are you going to do it yourself, or hire it out? If you choose to install the faux stone or brick veneer yourself, some recommendations are to order slightly more stone siding than you think you will need, prep the area prior to putting on the faux stone, and lay the pattern on the ground first to make sure it flows.
