What is Stone Siding?
Since the 1800s, people have used stone siding as the primary surface material for their homes and businesses because of its hardness, durability, and ability to hold up when exposed to the strongest forces of nature — wind, rain, snow, and the blazing sun.
At Exterior By Design, we carry a wide variety of Siding stones so you’re guaranteed to find the ideal look for your home. Our design team can make your home remodeling project easier by helping you in choosing between various textures, colours, and sizes. Our highly specialized stone masons have the experience to handle even the toughest of natural stone facing applications.
Natural Stone Siding or Manufactured Stone Veneer?
Natural stone is beautiful, but when it comes to an equally durable and aesthetically pleasing alternative at less expense, few options offer greater benefit than artificial stone veneer, first introduced to the North American market more than 30 years ago. It comes in a variety of styles and colours that are guaranteed to add timelessness and beauty to any structure. No company in the Greater Toronto Area has more experience designing and installing stone veneer than Exterior By Design.
Veneer stones are made from a combination of natural and artificial aggregates, are laid individually, and look, feel, and wear just as well as the real thing. To the untrained eye, they are indistinguishable from natural stone in texture and colour but are lightweight and more practical to install. Best of all, Exterior By Design can install stone veneer inside or out, whether you need a new facade on your store front or are looking for ways to enhance your fireplace in your family room.
Like any siding or surfacing material, stone veneer requires that the sub-surface is properly prepared and insulated before the stones are secured to the structure. At Exterior By Design, our expert designers can help you select the right style for your home or business: Brookstone, Cobblestone, Drystack, Fieldstone, Sandstone, and many others. We have the skills and experience necessary to craft custom veneer pieces to match older architectural styles.
