GenStone DIY Faux Stone

The Beauty of Stone Made Easy™

We designed the GenStone faux stone system to provide a true do-it-yourself friendly stone veneer home improvement product. Originally introduced in 2002, our panelized system has become a mainstay in the home improvement market, as DIY homeowners and contractors realized GenStone provided an authentic looking stone, rock and brick for about half the cost of traditional masonry work. The GenStone system is based upon an easy to install combination of panels and accessories. Available in Class-A fire rated interior and durable exterior collections, our concept has quickly spread throughout the United States and Canada making GenStone the most popular alternative to natural and cast stone.

What Does GenStone Look Like Installed?

Cast from real stone, rock and brick because authenticity matters.

Our project gallery is filled with improvement projects ranging from proud DIY home projects to large commercial applications. GenStone is the most authentic looking alternative to expensive masonry work available, no matter how you envision adding stone, rock or brick to your home or business.

“I installed this product as a DIY project as I do have construction in my background. This product was extremely easy to install and with the offset corners, the product looks as real as it gets. What I especially like is the added benefits of the R value and noise reduction because of the dense foam. I compared this product to others and I think this product has the best definition, meaning it has great lines and a depth that gives it a very real look when installed.”

In order to overcome the brittle stigma created by lower quality faux stone products and prove that GenStone is the most reliable faux stone panel on the market. You won’t believe how easily the “competition” including cast and concrete stone products crumbled under the first sign of stress.

Life Tested Labs

In our popular Life Tested YouTube campaign, we pushed the durability limits of our panels with a variety of impact tests:

  • We dropped GenStone and cast stone from the roof of our office building

  • We drove over our panels over with a 2 ton Jeep Wrangler

  • We swung a sledgehammer with the impact force of a Mike Tyson punch against the face of our panel and a common cast stone alternative
