Increase Your Home’s Value With Stone Veneer
Increase Your Home Value With Real Stone Veneer
America’s surge of home improvement projects isn’t showing signs of waning. Even if you don’t plan on selling your house anytime soon, adding real stone veneer siding can improve curb appeal and increase the value of your home. And who doesn’t want that?
According to the National Association of REALTORS®, curb appeal can have significant influence on how your house is perceived by neighbors and potential buyers—ultimately fetching a higher price on the market, up to 7% more than homes with low curb appeal. Homeowners can choose from a variety of products when upgrading their home’s exterior, so it’s important to select high-quality material like a real stone veneer that will last for decades.
Benefits of Using Real Stone Veneer
Believe it or not, real stone veneer such as Natural Facing is comparable in price to a manufactured stone veneer. While the 2022 Cost vs. Value Report shows homeowners can recoup up to 91% of the cost of manufactured stone veneer, homeowners who choose natural stone veneer are more likely to be satisfied with their investment in the long term. There are many benefits of using real stone veneer, including:
Real stone veneer is beautiful.
The time-tested beauty of natural stone veneer is characterized by its natural variation in color. Manufactured stone, which is made from a mixture of cement, aggregates, and pigments to give the artificial stone a “real stone” look and feel, often produces a visible repeat in pattern due to limited molds or materials. For homeowners wanting a more natural look and colors that manufactured stones simply cannot match, natural stone veneer siding is the prime choice because it offers a variety of blends and styles.
Real stone veneer is durable
Natural stone is a perfect veneer because it withstands the test of time—and mother nature. Whereas manufactured or artificial stone tends to chip and fade over time due to environmental exposure, natural stone isn’t manmade and therefore it’s naturally weather proof. As a result, homeowners don’t have to worry about moisture absorbency or cracks in real stone veneer and can spend more time enjoying their house without the need for ongoing maintenance.
Real stone veneer siding is environmentally friendly.
Landscaping is a popular home upgrade, but for homeowners where landscaping may be more challenging due to climate-related drought conditions, adding real sawn thin stone is a leading choice for homes across the country. And, homeowners looking to upgrade and minimize the environmental impact of their home improvement project can rest assured natural stone veneer comes from a quarry and not a factory.
Real stone veneer improves your home’s energy efficiency.
Unlike lightweight porous material used for artificial stone veneer siding, real sawn thin stone is a nonporous lightweight alternative to heavy building stone. Natural stone veneer is quarried stone that is sliced into thin pieces or otherwise cut to fit the needs of your design. As a result, your home benefits from the cooling tendencies of natural stone making it more comfortable during increasingly warmer months.
Real stone veneer is easy to install.
Architects, builders and masons reveal they prefer to use natural stone veneer siding because installing real stone veneer is easier than using manufactured stone. Companies like Natural Facing offer several real stone veneer siding installation methods, giving professional contractors the flexibility to choose the best way to update mostly any kind of house.
