GenStone DIY Faux Stone
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?
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.
Over 900 square feet installed
"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, gives it a very real look when installed."
Teresa's DIY Outdoor Kitchen
Everything turned out excellent and we couldn't be more happy with the end result of what everything looks like here. I would definitely have anybody use this product, it looks like real stone, everything is excellent.
"the 40 year old stone classing on the front of our home was in need of replacing. We selected GenStone Desert Sunrise Stone panels. Received many compliments on the finished project and would highly recommend this product to anyone."
Tom's Wainscot in Alaska
"It dramatically changed the look of our house and lots of compliments from our neighbors and I think it really upped the value of our house."
What a GREAT product!
"I love the look of rock and really wanted more of it inside and outside my house. The product looks great, has an awesome warranty and is super easy to install. I am working on my second project with Genstone Kenai panels, and I would recommend them to anyone."
My DIY Entertainment Center
"Most of my basement was done by contractors but I did carve out a couple of projects to do by myself. I am not an expert in construction by any means, but if you can measure, cut with saws, drill and glue, you can do this too."
Extremely Happy with GenStone!!
"We decided to add GenStone columns and GenStone panels to our back deck, so happy we did. It took a regular deck and turned it into something you would see in a magazine. We are extremely pleased with GenStone. We are considering other DIY home projects using GenStone."
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
