More Homeowners Choosing Stone Veneer
According to an article on HGTV Pro, manufactured stone veneer is gaining in popularity among homeowners. There are a number of reasons why stone veneer is growing in popularity, including:
- Cost- About half that of real stone.
- Ease of installation- Stone veneers don’t require foundations, footings, and other structural supports necessary for actual stone.
- Consistent appearance- Because the product is manufactured, you can achieve a more consistent look with tighter joints than with traditional masonry.
- Selection- There are so many variations of color and style available with fabricated stone veneers. In fact, Canyon Stone can even create a custom color/stone combination for your project.
The article quotes the owner of a Chicago construction company, Steve Schwarz Jr., who says, “We get a lot of transient people coming into the Midwest from all over, and they want to bring some of the stones from their old homes- such as Arizona or North Carolina- to their new homes.” What a great way to add personality and a little family history to your home!
