Stone siding can make a home look comfortable and inviting as it adds character and charm. However, using real stone on your Colorado Springs home’s exterior isn’t always practical thanks to its hefty weight and considerable expense. This makes stone veneer, or faux stone, a great alternative if you love the look of natural stone but don’t want to spend a lot of money, time, or energy on your home renovation or restoration project.
Stone Veneer is Easier to Install
Putting real stone on your home’s outer walls requires making sure they can support its weight and cutting the stones just right to ensure a proper fit and look. This entire cumbersome and time consuming process can be completely avoided when you choose stone veneer siding as it is up to three-quarters less in weight and the stones are custom molded, allowing our professional and expert installers to seamlessly and effortlessly fit them together in the most visually appealing way. And if you ever have to replace a stone, we can do this for you rather quickly and easily too.
Stone Siding is Less Expensive
Although stone siding tends to cost a bit more than some of the other siding options, such as vinyl and fiber cement, it is still less expensive than using real stone (about one-half of the cost). Plus, you don’t have the additional pricing of wall ties and footings common with a natural stone finish. Therefore, you may even decide to add it to your home’s interior as well as stone veneer looks great around indoor fireplaces or as an accent to inside stairwells. Because stone veneer is less prone to fire, some insurance companies even offer lower rates when you use it.
Stone Veneer Siding is Durable and Maintenance Free
Stone veneer siding is strong and durable so it can help protect your home against some of the harsh conditions common in the Colorado Springs area, such as hail, wind, and fire. Furthermore, it is relatively maintenance free as all you have to do to freshen it up is spray it down with a garden hose to wash away any dust or dirt.
Rock Siding is Available in a Variety of Colors and Styles
Rock siding comes in a variety of colors, styles, and designs, helping you create an exterior for your home that is natural looking, as well as unique. Essentially, it allows you to customize your house’s finish according to your own individual style and needs while still giving it a completely natural look that most people won’t realize as faux stone—as long as it is properly installed, which is why we recommend using only experienced and reputable companies when choosing this particular option.
