Stone Veneer Adds Beauty and Value to a Home

Real Estate

Stone veneer offers homeowners a way to update their property, and add character and value to their home while not spending a fortune on renovation. When considering a new project on their home, a homeowner should definitely consider stone veneer in Greenville, SC.

Stone veneer has been around for hundreds of years—it is even said that marble veneer was used on parts of the Coliseum in Rome. These natural facades provide a way for a homeowner to add a touch of stone to a room without having to demolish a wall or space to get it. Stone veneers can be used around a fireplace to cover up the existing brick, or be used on an accent wall, giving new life and character to a space in need of some sprucing up.

While beautiful on the interior of the home, stone veneer is also commonly used on the exterior. When used properly, the stone can help improve the curb appeal of a home. Veneer can be used to cover the exterior of the home in its entirety, or to work as an accent to another material. Regardless of the type of stone used, the results will no doubt leave everyone else in the neighborhood wanting to do the same to their house.

Natural stone veneer is a more expensive option when compared to manufactured stone veneer. While the allure of a cheap price tag may draw some people to manufactured stone veneer, there is no substitute for the real thing. Natural stone veneer is infinitely better than its cheaper counterpart for a number of reasons. Manufactured stone veneer is generally made out of concrete, with the exterior portion molded and painted to resemble real stone. When manufactured stone veneer chips, the underlying concrete is exposed. Manufactured stone is not nearly as strong as real stone. Also, significantly more waste is created in the production of manufactured stone veneers, whereas with natural stone veneer, any stone that has to be chipped off during production can be reused. Finally, manufactured stone veneer is very porous, and when installed on the exterior of a home, is prone to water seepage. When this happens and temperatures drop, the water can freeze and expand, causing the veneer to pull away from the house. Damage to manufactured stone veneer means the entire panel will have to be replaced, not just a portion, creating an expensive repair.

When a homeowner is looking to add stone as a detail to a wall, fireplace, or other location that has already been constructed, natural stone veneers should be seriously considered. To use actual stone in these instances would not only be costly, but also heavy. When stone is used, it needs to be braced or supported in such a way to ensure it won’t break the structure it is being added to. So in the case of a wall where a homeowner desires to add a stone accent, full-sized stone cannot just be attached to the wall, it has to be attached in a way to ensure it won’t damage the wall or compromise the structure due to its added weight. Full-sized stones are already more expensive than natural stone veneer, and adding in the extra work and materials needed to brace the stone correctly will no doubt calculate to an increased cost of installation.

Natural stone veneers add beauty and value to a home, whether used on the interior or exterior. While manufactured stone veneers may seem like a good choice given the price, there are significantly more disadvantages to choosing faux stone to the real thing. Stone veneer in Greenville, SC, is an excellent choice for any home.
