If you’re looking for a way to help your custom home stand out, you can’t go wrong with high-quality stone veneers. At Capstone Custom Homes, we use top quality stone veneer suppliers whose products are backed by generous warranties. Here’s a closer look at how stone veneer can transform your home.

Styles and Color Schemes

There are seemingly endless styles and color schemes available with stone veneer. From classic granite and etched barn stone to rugged looks inspired by the natural stone found in areas such as Tennessee and New England, there’s a style for every  home. With different grout and install styles, there are plenty of options to match your personal preferences. Best of all, manufactured stone holds up just as well as real stone — if not better!

Great for Fireplaces

Stone veneer can be especially stunning when used with a fireplace. While there is much to be said for a traditional brick fireplace, stone helps set a distinct tone for your space. When paired with a wood mantel, this can make the fireplace a true focal point for your home.

Overfilled Grout

One popular install style for stone is the “overfilled grout” look. This is done by taking grout or a mortar mixture and relining the areas between the stones or bricks until they look overstuffed. The grout is then smoothed in a way that wraps (but doesn’t completely cover) the stone. As it softens, it maintains the organic edge of the stones for a great look.

No matter what your stonework preferences, you’ll find a style that is perfect for your space when you build with Capstone Custom Homes. To learn more about our stone veneer options and how they can be used for your custom home, schedule a time to meet with a sales consultant.
