Stone Siding - Making Your Home A Castle

Discover the incredible beauty of stone siding and the various choices you have

You may not like the look of stucco but maybe wood isn't your thing either. Luckily, with the advent of home siding you have many more choices than just these two. Stone siding is an amazing concept because it truly looks like the exterior walls of your home are fortified in stone!

In reality it is but it's just the outside layer about 1/4" thick or slightly more (real stone)! It's real stone that's been hallowed out for weight but the only part visible is the part you'd see anyway! If you do like wood but want something different, there is Log Cabin Siding, Redwood Siding, Blend of stone, wood, and vinyl too! Between all of those there are even more combinations. Stone siding is like a veneer for your home- using real stone but a fraction of the weight and work/upkeep!

One of the more interesting types of siding is stone siding and that's what we'll talk about in this article specifically.
