Stone Veneer – The Ultimate Bay Window Cladding Material

Weather Threats and Lacklustre Solutions

Every homebuyer or homeowner knows the importance windows offer to both the style and architecture of a house. These transparent viewpoints connect you to the outside world and conversely offer the public a taste of what makes you and your property distinct. However, while the shapes of windows differ (box, bay, bow, dormer) from place to place and are installed according to preference, one thing remains the same; their maintenance. In fact, it’s weather which makes the maintenance of windows necessary because most if not all are built of plywood. The weathering of plywood compels a homeowner to paint over them every 3 to 4 years and perhaps replace them entirely as they are prone to rotting, decaying, or leakage. To counter these drawbacks, builders have lately turned to
vinyl siding, drawn by its cheaper cost, lighter weight, and easy installation. But these advantages are not enough to overcome a major drawback: the tendency to use the siding in unimaginative, even boring designs. The popularity of brick and the convenience of vinyl siding has inhibited creativity and led to a rash of
new subdivisions filled with repetitive designs that look as if they all came off the same assembly line. Limiting themselves to these conventional materials means many builders miss opportunities to attract new and design-conscious buyers.

Your Second Floor is Not Safe

One must remember that rain and snow precipitate more often on the second floor of a house than on the first and consequently suffers more from outdoor elements. Contactors and professional installers often find accessing and working on any second floor project tedious and problematic which implies that a regular everyday handyman will experience these feelings sevenfold. Even when vinyl or aluminum sidings are used to finish window frames they encounter problems like warped sidings, aluminum losing its colour, and cracks to stucco. This is all the result of overheating of the roof where high temperatures and sunrays split, fade, and deform your home’s surfaces.

Protect Your Home from the Elements

A solution to these various problems is maintenance free, lightweight, manufactured stone veneer. Durable and colour fast, weather resistant stone veneer is the ideal bay window cladding material. Easy to install and available in dozens of attractive textures and colours, manufactured stone veneer enhances the architecture of a house and solves the problem of faded paint, rotting boards, warped sidings and possible water damage to the interior of your house.
Manufactured stone, also known as faux stone or artificial stone, is engineered from a specifically formulated blend of Portland cement, natural stone aggregates, and carefully selected pigments. At only a fraction of the weight of natural stone, manufactured stone eliminates the need for structural reinforcing of foundations and footings. Thus, the stone can be installed on any stable interior or exterior wall surface, facing, or elevation; including those where
natural stone would be impractical.
