For those in the trade show and display business the use of a product that helps during the construction and dismantling of a show booth is surely a major benefit.
In these circumstances these companies are allowed a limited time to set up their booth and even less time at the end of the show. In the case of displays that use stone this problem is noticed even more. Applying faux stone panels becomes an easy choice once these companies have had the opportunity to test them.
Let’s say you have used other materials before.
You surely have noticed that gluing heavy products, small section by small section, is extremely time-consuming and during that process you have wondered “there must be an easier way”. Well, there is. The most interesting aspect of faux stone panels is the fact that this innovative product is so quick and effortless to fasten that even at higher prices per square foot it still provides a huge saving.
If it takes something line 2 days to create a wall of 20ft x 8ft, with faux stone panels you can complete the same coverage area in about 4 hours. Let's take a look at this display:
Another amazing thing is the fact that you can spend even less time in preparing the frame to hold the panels because of the light weight of them.
At the end of the show you also learn another positive thing about them, since you just used screws to install them, you can now remove the screws and in a matter of minutes you have the whole wall down. Now all you need to do for the next show is remove the faux stone panels from your crate and screw them back in place. This is a product, unlike others, that can be reused many times.Editor
If there is an area alone that changes the entire look of the house, this must surely be the living room.
Many families today cannot afford a major renovation to give their home a fresh new look. Now that spring is here we all try to find the money to start some sort of house project. Being indoor or outdoor, tweaking the family budget for a home improvement can be the source of concern and stress.
Why not then consider an alternative that is both effective in reviving the look of your living room and save you money?
Think about the savings coming from the use of faux stone.
One part of your family room that can easily, quickly and cheaply reach the above goals is a divider wall. If you have a wall that divides different rooms, this is surely an area that is seen constantly, from different directions and that you could transform into a beautiful faux stone wall. Let’s take a look at this newly submitted project review.
With just a few pieces of faux stone this DIY family was able to quickly and dramatically change the look of their home. Because of the addition of the top stone ledge trim they didn’t need to purchase panels and go all the way to the ceiling, rather they stopped at the same level as the doorways. You can take a look at the video below to see how simple it is to use faux stone.
Being that faux stone is incredibly versatile, they were also able to cut the panels in at the edge of the door with a skill saw and paint the edges to make them look like real stone.
As we said above, completing a DIY home project is now affordable to most families. Take a look at our CATALOG to see the different prices and faux stone on sale.Editor
Changing the look of your home without using regular veneer is not a real possibility with faux panels.
Let's take as an example a home in a nice neighborhood surrounded by other homes which look very similar. The owners of this home, as many others, would love to do something to their place to make it look a bit different from the others. Something that will make it stand out.
Today’s design trends seem often to point toward adding some kind of stone veneer or stacked stone look, either to the whole façade or just
on an accent wall.
To create such look there are few options that are not necessarily affordable.
There are different types of siding that come in vinyl, aluminum or wood, neither of which has a long lasting charm. Many of these will change color, fade, mold or distort. Also, such materials are not going to make the home look much different from the others in the same neighborhood.
There is also the option of using stacked stone or brick but these are definitely expensive, particularly if you hire someone to put them up. One material that combines a large number of advantages and strong characteristics is stone veneer panels in durable resin.
When applying these 36 x 48 stone veneer panels as a wainscoting the homeowner and the installers have a very easy job in front of them.
These faux panels can be put up directly over an existing surface, as in existing siding, plywood and even vapor barrier. Antico Elements’ Stone veneer panels come with a number accessories like concrete ledge trim that can be applied at the top of each panel to protect the wall from being infiltrated with water and ice.
The cost of the panels might be comparable to other stacked stone materials but the real big saving is in the cost of installation, since it takes just a few minutes per panel to completely install it and be done with it.
They've done it again! With affordable stone veneer panels regular homeowners become DIY experts. Who says that only expert masons can create a beautiful stone accent? Anyone can and the proof is in the photos.
What once was a job for only expert stone masons or expensive remodeling firms, today has become something that any homeowner can quickly and cheaply dish out on his or her own. Or both!
Let's take as an example a young couple who just moved in a nice home and have spent a considerable amount of money remodeling the place before moving in. One project they left behind is the fireplace and as soon as they removed all the boxes and organized the rooms, they realize that this specific area needs a quick makeover. They agree on adding stone veneer panels instead of using traditional stone.
They have previously received quotes from masons who quickly scared them. They remember of this imitation stone store called AnticoElements.com and quickly decide to give it a try. The panels are clearly very realistic and installing them doesn't require any expertise.
To install stone veneer panels you only need a circular saw ( or if available, a table saw ), some Liquid Nails you can purchase at Lowe's or Home Depot and some screws.
Here's what happened when you have informed homeowners that know where to find faux materials panels to remodel a fireplace:
Many don't know it but this type of project doesn't require any mortar, mixing cement or spend days preparing the wall surfaces. They are not single pieces but a faux panel. These stone veneer panels require no preparation.
So, no matter what style you have in mind or what colors you already have in the room, there is a stone or brick panel for you in the online catalog. Check it out!Editor
The greatest quality of these products is that a person does not need to hire a mason to complete the installation, which will dramatically reduce the labor costs of the entire project. How you ever seen someone lay down real stone or rock? It can be quite strenuous and stressful logging stones with heavy weights to them. Installation will also take hours to complete when working with real stone and rock. That time can now be cut in half when working with replica stone and replica rock because no preparation is needed and the panels come ready to be installed onto any surface.
When you are installing the products, we recommend starting from the bottom left corner and working your way right. Next row should start on the left hand side and be worked to the right. We also offer the outlet trim and switch box to use to compliment the panels and adjust to use for the switches and outlets. The outer boundary of the panel comes with an insert on the top and sides for a stack-able option to reach whatever height measurement is needed.
Securing the panels is quite simple and can be done through the use of adhesives such as Liquid Nails or P & L Glue to name a couple. The adhesives should be applied to the back of the panels on the flat surface. It is also recommended that dry wall screws be used as well to help secure the placement of the panels on any surface. Many beautiful replica stone panels come painted in acrylic paint, where the paint serves as a natural protector against mildew and mold and helps to keep maintenance to a minimum. The final product will come out immaculate.Editor
