Quick And Affordable Stone Veneer Panels Makeover.

Posted on March 5, 2013

Changing the look of your home without using regular veneer is not a real possibility with faux veneer 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.

These faux veneer 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.
