Masonry offers an incredible variety of natural building products that can dramatically enhance the look of your home, inside and out. No one stone is alike; coming with different geological history and geographical origin. They all have unique textures and colours and can create look for your home that truly is one-of-a-kind, while fitting in with your existing design or landscaping. Stone can be installed on your home’s exterior, to create a welcoming indoor fireplace or a distinct feature wall in any room in your house.
Stone has proved itself to be strong and durable. In fact, it’s one of the oldest building materials known to mankind. We see evidence of ancient buildings constructed of stone that stand strong today. Your stone will last for years, continue to give your home a timeless style, and can be easily cleaned.
Stone can improve your homes energy efficiency. It is able to absorb and store heat, slowing down heat transfer in and out of your home which results in lower heating and cooling costs. It stands up to high winds, extreme conditions, and can protect your home from spreading fire.
Most valuable to homeowners, is that installing stone products gives you the best bang for your renovation buck. Remodelling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report 2015 showed that a manufactured stone veneer renovation could recoup 92.2% of your cost. The example given was a $7,150 stone installation renovation where 300 square feet of vinyl siding from the bottom third of a house was replaced with manufactured stone. The renovation also included the necessary layers of water-resistive barrier, corrosion-resistant lath and fasteners and a ½ inch thick mortar scratch coat and setting bed. In this case, the cost recouped was $6,594.
Not only will you see this return on your investment, you’ll also increase you property value and reduce the time it your house sits on the market when it’s time to sell. Since natural stone is so unique and seem to be eternally in style, your home will stand out on the market place. Masonry adds a certain sophistication and warmth that is attractive to potential home buyers.
