Stone is a durable material to use for your home exterior. However, the cost of stone alone can set you back a good amount of money, which makes it a less attractive option when you compare it with stone veneer.
Typically made from synthetic materials, stone veneer is manufactured to resemble authentic stone. It’s lightweight and less expensive; that’s why many homeowners have opted for this material instead.
Regular stone veneer siding has its problems, though. The most common drawback of stone veneer is it allows moisture to get in between the panels, potentially resulting in mold issues.
Highly regarded for its excellent siding products, CertainTeed® has found a solution to this: Stonefacade™, an innovative stone veneer product.
Stonefacade is the only stone veneer made with a fully integrated 3/8-inch rainscreen. This feature prevents moisture penetration ensuring your exterior wall is dry and reducing the potential for mold and mildew.
Real stone siding installation will require you to hire a mason and adhere to specific building codes, especially with regards to thickness. Stonefacade panels, on the other hand, are very easy to install as they have a continuous fastening flange. This allows your contractor to easily screw the panels into place.
Stonefacade panels are molded from natural, hand-picked stones. A unique hand-applied brushstroke technique is also used to create the tonal variations of natural stone, giving each panel the look and feel of real stone. This can boost the design and curb appeal of your home.
Regular recaulking, repainting, sealing or tuckpointing won’t be necessary. You can easily maintain the beauty of StoneFacade with a soft-bristle brush and soapy water.
