7 Benefits of Glamour Stone Veneer
Today, home renovations often feature the artistic use of real stone veneers to highlight and enhance certain areas of a home. And because the task of choosing the best finishing materials can be daunting for some homeowners, those who decide on using Glamour Stone Veneer will have certain definite benefits.
- First, glamour stone siding installs handily over the top of most surfaces without compatibility problems. This includes most ordinary construction materials like wood, concrete, drywall, metal, and even brick. Since it offers such versatility, installing stone veneer is a popular choice among both builders and property owners.
- Glamour thin stone veneer weighs less than other stone, brick or concrete building materials. So when it is installed it adds much less weight to the walls and foundation of the property. And as an added bonus, it’s easier to handle and costs less than other materials to ship to job sites or to distributors. And speaking of cost-effectiveness, the thin veneer is also less expensive than full-bed natural stone.
- One interesting benefit that is easily overlooked is that veneer is somewhat flexible (in a manner of speaking), so it can be used for curved or rounded spaces. Therefore, it is also more convenient to install in areas that are more complicated. And because it can be more handily cut to fit how you need it, shaping thin stone veneer into the required size and contour is just easier.
- Stone veneer is design-friendly. It offers such a vast range of color, style, pattern, and texture that matching your home’s style and your favored decorating motif is easy. Moreover, its color is consistent throughout and it is color-fast so it doesn’t fade or lose its luster despite intense weather conditions such as extreme rain, sun, and heat. So unlike cheap faux stone siding panels, it will continue to look superb for a long, long time.
- Natural stone veneer is perfect for upgrading the appearance of both indoor and outdoor fireplaces. And since it is real rock, the pieces are highly resistant to heat making it a smart choice for safety. Plus you acquire the custom stone look for your fireplace that so many homeowners find desirable.
- Stone veneer is one of the most maintenance-free building materials you can use. Still, as with any building material, there is some minor maintenance to be done. You’ll want to inspect the mortar from time to time, and you will want to clean it occasionally as well. But you will need only warm water and dish soap to make your own mild detergent to clean your veneer, and then you simply wash it with a sponge or soft brush. Then follow that with a clean water rinse to remove any soapy residue to keep your veneer looking beautiful.
- For most homeowners, emerging as the single greatest benefit above and beyond all those we’ve already mentioned is the amazing beauty and elegance that Glamour Stone Veneer brings to your living space, inside and out.
