Top 4 Ways to Add Stone to Your Home’s Exterior 

Adding stonework to your home’s exterior can add sophistication and enhance its design. This can be accomplished through panelized stone veneer, a cement-based product that looks like traditional stone masonry but without the price tag. It’s easy to install and maintain, available in many styles and colours, and requires no sealing.

Here are four exterior stone veneer design ideas can transform your home.

1. Facades

The front of your home presents the largest opportunity to maximize curb appeal and first impressions. For exteriors that primarily use siding or clapboards, stone veneer is a great way to add beauty and interest. With a range of colours that mimic the look of natural stone, you can enhance the front door, windows and other features of the home.

2. Trim

Applying stylish stone and veneer trim to your home’s entrance is an easy way to enhance your curb appeal. Add subtle trim to the bottom of posts or columns or at the base of your front entryway for an elegant and inviting touch. 

3. Chimneys 

Adding stone veneer to your home’s chimney will create a timeless, rustic look. Choose from an array of designs and colours to create the look you’re going for. 

4. Outdoor Fireplaces and Kitchens

Relaxing and cooking around an outdoor fireplace is more popular than ever. Stone veneer can provide the perfect finishing touch and enhance your outdoor entertaining area. In outdoor kitchen-dining areas, you can maximize aesthetics by pairing stone veneer with a granite countertop or using it to build additional seating on your patio. 

For professional installation, rely on a Premium Renovator to get the job done. For best long-term results, stone veneer will need to be cleaned every 2-4 months. To prevent damage to the stone, avoid using a wire brush, acid products, power washing and sandblasting. 

Improving your exterior with manufactured stone veneer is a low-maintenance investment that will add value and sophistication to your home without breaking the bank.
