I recently checked out CertainTeed STONEfaçade, a revolutionary cladding product made of easy-to-install manufactured stone panels that can be used for accents both inside and outside the home. Many people in the suburbs are selling their homes due in part to the low mortgage rates being offered to buyers and the fact that many people are moving out of crowded cities due to COVID-19—but you still want to give your home an edge! I can’t think of anything classier than stone trim to give your home additional curb appeal. It can really make a difference, especially if you live in a townhouse development with similar exteriors. The stacked-stone look from STONEfaçade works on homes of various styles and looks as good on an ultra-modern home as it does on a Tudor or colonial.
The great news is that aside from being economical and easy-to-install, STONEfaçade is also low-maintenance and can simply be cleaned with mild soap and water. For exterior use, it can be used as an accent just about anywhere, including exterior walls, columns and trim. Thanks to an integrated rainscreen, there is less potential for mold due to built-up moisture in the wall cavity. In areas of the U.S. prone to heavy rainfall and flooding, this is a real benefit.
In the interior of a home, STONEfaçade can be used to cover entire walls or as wall accents. Many customers have used it to wrap kitchen islands, peninsulas or bars. Stone-covered bars have been heavily featured in Elle Décor and other high-end décor/interior design magazines, and you can often see them in the background of estate parties in The Hamptons.
You will be dazzled by the color choices, which are the artfully titled Adirondack Snowfall (subtle variations of gray), Appalachian Twilight (tranquil shades of grays and browns), Pocono Autumn (stunning shades of brown, orange and yellow) and Harbor Sunset (mellow but statement-making shades of brown and burgundy).
STONEfaçade is available in select markets throughout the U.S. I think you will be pleased when you see not only the sophisticated warmth STONEfaçade can give your home, but the added value as well.
