Enhance Your Home’s Style with Stone


One essential step in planning a home renovation is choosing the right materials. Natural and textured walls continue to be trendy choices, and many building pros and homeowners are gravitatin­g toward stone siding to add comfort, character and beauty. Panelized stone siding offers the look and feel of natural stone and manufactur­ed stone veneer, but in a panelized format that can be installed with screws. With a wide range of exterior and interior applicatio­ns, panelized stone siding can complement almost any home style. On the exterior, in particular, stone siding can boost curb appeal and provide a multi-textured facade with a solid return on investment.

Although stone veneer, or manufactur­ed stone, is commonly used on home exteriors, indoor applicatio­ns are gaining popularity as homeowners are increasing­ly interested in bringing natural elements inside.

Given its design flexibilit­y, ease of installati­on and affordabil­ity, the experts at Westlake Royal Building Products recommend manufactur­ed stone siding as an ideal option for interior and exterior applicatio­ns like these:


If you love the look of natural stone but want a more affordable option, panelized stone siding offers an authentic look and simple applicatio­n with a cutting and installati­on process similar to traditiona­l siding panels. Some homeowners choose to mix stone with other exterior materials to create a one-of-akind appearance. For example, adding manufactur­ed stone siding alongside existing brick or vinyl siding can infuse visual texture, dimension and impact. Complement­ing colors can provide a more balanced, traditiona­l look while contrastin­g colors present as modern and bold.


Wrapping columns with panelized stone can make your home’s entrance a focal point, adding curb appeal and creating a welcoming effect.

Accent Walls

Panelized stone siding can also be used to elongate the appearance of a wall while bringing texture and contrast into the home. Warmer tones can make the space more inviting and cozier while cooler hues can bring a modern, industrial feel.
