A significant number of homeowners, whether they were "underwater" or owning their property, are realizing that with the home prices going up it is now time to do some renovation and put the home up for sale.
On the same token investors and first-home buyers want to take advantage of the very low mortgage rates and purchase a property before the prices reach new highs.

Stone Veneer Panels – Easy And affordable

Posted on May 13, 2012

Here's another example of how affordable panels of stone veneers can make a difficult job easy.

In some projects using real stone or just plain stone veneer is not an easy option. These types of stone can't be molded very easily so when you need to make sharp turns it requires an expert and expensive contractor. In this project, there was the need to cut the stone veneer panels for a few tight spots.

To cut regular stone and stone veneer most people need specialized tools like wet saws. With stone veneer panels you can just use a jigsaw or a hand saw. It really requires a low knowledge of carpentry.
When making small adjustments, like the top of an arch or a corner, anyone can easily sand down Antico Elements' stone veneer panels with some sanding paper or even a file.
The advantages are many.
Once the piece has the right shape you can simply use some adhesive and a few staples to secure it in place. You can't say the same for regular stone and stone veneer.
