Stone cladding on all or a portion of an exterior wall can make that statement that says luxury and elegance. Using stone veneer accents to highlight your home's design and features is an easy way to add character and value to your residence. Achieving these effects is easy when you use stone cladding that come in stone panels and are an inexpensive alternative to using real brick or stone. Since these veneers are lightweight, they are capable of being installed as a DIY project.
While stone veneer is only about three quarters of an inch thick and only one and a half to two inches at most, their real stone counterparts can be more than four inches thick making them extremely heavy and unwieldy. The benefits of using stone veneer for cladding and siding is not only will the difference in thickness affect the supporting structure, but delivery and installation costs will differ as well. For this reason alone stone cladding veneers are environmentally favourable alternatives to the real thing, with lower carbon footprints in manufacture, transport and installation.
When you are looking for the look of a full stone wall but without the weight or expense, stone veneer cladding or siding is your best choice, especially since most veneers can be installed directly over existing materials. This is a perfect option when you want to update and change a specific area of your residence quickly and easily. The beauty of exposed stone cladding cannot be easily achieved with other materials. In this way you can create the look of an authentic stone wall with its warmth and character, that will be there for years to come stone veneer.
