Improving The Look Of Your House With Faux Stone Siding
Houses built with stone walls are very appealing to most people. However, this can be a very expensive undertaking. Actually adding real stone to the outside of your house is expensive since the stones are very heavy, and this needs to be done by professionals. However, there are a number of options for stone siding, made out of real stone or just made to look like stone, which can give you the look of stone without you having to spend a fortune. Some of these products can even be installed by homeowners themselves.
One of the companies that sell faux stone siding is GenStone. They sell siding made of 98% closed-cell structural polyurethane that looks like stone. This siding is sold in panels and half panels, with the panels covering approximately 7 square feet each. The panels weigh only about 1 pound per square foot, they are waterproof, and they don’t degrade in sunlight. They add insulation value to your home and can be easily installed using hand tools.
