Stone is one of the oldest siding materials known to man, rivaling even brick and likely predating it. This is because it is natural and requires minimal processing. It was the preferred building material during ancient times and has appeared on palaces, castles, cathedrals, pyramids and sculptures, many of which have survived until the present day.
What is Stone Siding Installation?
Stone siding installation involves the tools and procedures which are needed to add stone to a home’s exterior. Stone is a heavy material that requires good support. When a house is first built the contractor will typically construct a stone or brick ledge inside the foundation through extending it past the frame of the house. If a house was constructed without a stone or brick ledge, adding one is challenging, requires exceptional skill and is therefore costly.
When Do You Need Stone Siding Installation in New Jersey?
- When you want something completely distinct: If you’re looking for a color, pattern or texture that will never be duplicated anywhere else in the neighborhood or world, stone is your best bet. It is one of the most diverse siding materials you can buy. Unlike other siding materials, it is cut from 100 percent stone which will not be subject to fading, chipping, scratching or rot. Your home will look great and will have a much higher market value.
- When you desire sustainability: A growing number of homeowners are becoming aware of the environmental impact of the construction industry, and the government has passed many regulations which are designed to rein them in. Stone is super eco-friendly, as it comes from nature itself. It doesn’t have off gases which will reduce indoor air quality and aside from the weight, it is easy to handle.
- When you want the best protection from the elements: New Jersey and the Tri-State area in general have tough weather, especially during winter when the region is subject to storms and temperatures which dip below freezing. The level of protection that stone provides will greatly surpass almost every other material. It completely blocks moisture from entering the home’s interior, while trapping heat during winter and preventing it from leaving, keeping your family warm. During summer, it will do the opposite, keeping the home nice and cool. It is extremely durable and can withstand strong winds and virtually anything else short of an artillery strike.
