The Value of Stone-Look Exteriors for Twin Cities Homes

While our siding and replacement windows and doors crews work all year round, we find that as the winter approaches, some homeowners are shifting their focus from getting their exterior remodeling done to planning for spring.  Of course, when the warm weather arrives, you want to spend more time outside and less time indoors or working on exterior maintenance This means making sure that the exterior of your home looks the best that it possibly can. And of course, having maintenance-free materials will give you more free time!

Perhaps you’re thinking about giving your home a new look. Siding is a great place to start.  But you can take your siding ideas to the next level by incorporating stone accents.  If you’re considering a stone exterior, then you might just want to know more about how the looks and other benefits will come with the panelized stone we install – Versetta Stone® by Boral.

Why You Should Consider Versetta Stone® for Your Minneapolis Home

Putting the right siding on a home is going to make all the difference in so many ways. As you’re evaluating your choices in siding materials (and you have a lot), think about the curb appeal, durability, and how you can boost the welcoming and warmth of your home. With this in mind, you can then feel more confident than ever being able to choose the right siding for your home. We currently offer a variety of siding products, and one thing a number of our customers have chosen to do is to mix materials for a truly custom look.  If you’ve looked through our project photos, perhaps you’ve noticed stone accents on a number of them.

Real stone, however, can be expensive. And most siding contractors don’t install it; you need to hire a stone mason, someone with specialized skills and tools. But we’ve got a much more affordable option that installs much the same as our other siding materials.  The panelized Versetta Stone® we offer creates the gorgeous look of real stone at a fraction of the cost. Plus it’s much easier to install. We can do it right along with the other siding you choose.

It’s Durable

Of course, you want the siding on your home to be durable. After all, it provides that outer layer of protection your home needs to stand up to Minnesota’s harsh weather. Some siding products do that better than others. Versetta Stone® comes with a 50-year warranty against corrosion. Chances are you won’t be in your home that long, so it is your assurance that this siding material is going to look good for a long, long time.

And because the stone is panelized, no mortar or sealants are required. So that means no upkeep, no more re-caulking or re-sealing, no mortar to fail.

Endless Customization

If you want the outside of your home to look different from the other houses around yours, you should know that this is one of the most versatile sidings you can use. You can get creative and mix and match the stone looks and colors with one another. You can even go with a different type of stone for an area you particularly want to highlight. Or perhaps you have just one spot on your home you’d like to draw attention to.  We’ve had homeowners who wanted to show off their front entry area, and Versetta stone was the perfect way to do that.

The colors and stone types available rival Mother Nature in rugged, natural beauty. And these panelized stone products work well with just about any other type of siding material.
