4 Tips for Adding Stone Veneer to Your Home Exterior 

Whether building or renovating your home, consider adding the natural beauty of stone to your exterior with a lightweight and easy-to-install stone veneer. Gentek specialty siding, including Quality Stone Panels and Versetta Stone, can be used to accentuate your home exterior. Follow these tips to effectively add stone—and style—to your home:

1. Mix and Match Siding

Use the mix-and-match siding trend to add interest and appeal to your home. Stone veneer can help blend colour, texture, and board widths when used in combination with board and batten ultra-premium vinyl siding, ChamClad, or Longboard

2. Elegant Exterior Accents

Use stone veneer as an accent to frame your front entrance or as a subtle trim along the bottom of posts or columns. Alternatively, add a stone veneer trim along the bottom third of your facade to add depth. Accentuate your chimney with a stone veneer for a sophisticated touch. Enhance your outdoor entertaining area with stone veneer around fireplaces and kitchens. 

3. Natural Textures 

Pair stone veneer with the natural texture of wood or wood-like siding to add warmth. With many styles and finishes to choose from, find a realistic veneer stone profile that complements your home’s unique style. 

4. Neutral Colours 

Neutral hues and warm undertones blend perfectly with the texture of stone veneer. Combine stone veneer with an inviting exterior colour palette a couple shades lighter or darker than the stone to create a stunning yet subtle effect. Take inspiration from the organic environment and choose a siding colour in a shade of grey, green, or blue to complement your stone veneer.
