Are you thinking about sprucing up your home’s exterior? If you’re not interested in vinyl siding or other more common home exterior options, then consider engineered stone veneer as a way to enhance your home’s appearance. Engineered stone veneer looks just like real stone, but is actually manufactured to be easy to install, durable, and beautiful. Here are a few factors to consider when choosing engineered stone veneer for your home’s exterior.

Application Area

While many homes look absolutely amazing when covered completely in engineered stone veneer, many homeowners prefer to incorporate other elements in their home’s exterior. For a more contemporary look, consider integrating siding or other home exterior materials alongside the engineered stone veneer.

Type of Stone

Choosing the type or style of stone you’ll incorporate into your home’s exterior depends on several factors. First, consider whether you want your exterior to be bright or more subtle. Tailored stone or limestone exteriors are great if you’d like a brighter home, while granite, river rock, and dress field stone are better for darker tones. Less lustrous stones will also have a more natural look, while limestone and tailored stone may look more deliberate in their design.

Homeowner Association

Some homeowner associations (HOAs) have rules about what your home’s exterior may look like that will limit your engineered stone veneer choices. If the HOA is concerned about excessive construction, then remind them that culture stone is very easy and quick to install.  Your home should be complete in no more than a few days.
