Faux Stone

Stone Veneer Panels and Siding

We designed GenStone stone veneer panels to provide a true do-it-yourself stone veneer siding 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 stone veneer panels and our concept has quickly spread throughout the United States and Canada making GenStone the most popular alternative to natural stone.

Contractor Quality, DIY Friendly

GenStone faux stone panels can be installed quicklyWhat good is faux stone if it won’t last? And what use is it to the average homeowner if GenStone can’t be installed easily? The answer is, faux stone was never a reliable alternative to natural stone before GenStone. Where others took shortcuts, we spent decades perfecting our panels. As a result, we developed a faux stone paneling system that is known for being easy to install, authentic looking and incredibly durable.

How Much Does GenStone Cost?

The installed cost of GenStone is typically 50% less than that of masonry stone. Even if you hired a contractor to install GenStone, your GC could use siding installers which cost much less than hiring a mason.

Gary Installed His Faux Stone – So Can You!

Gary in California is not a self-proclaimed handyman but he thought he’d give GenStone a try. As you can see from the photos he sent us, with a little step by step help from our team, Gary was able to transform his back patio with the look of stone and you guessed it, he did it himself!

What Our Customers Say About GenStone

“This is the VERY best product to make your house look like a home, a very fancy home! My husband did it himself with little effort and it has transformed our house. Wish we could put before and after pics on here so you would know just what I am talking about. Rob at GenStone helped us and he was so kind, encouraging and helpful throughout our entire project. When you look at your GenStone sample it’s obvious it looks good but once it’s on your house it is….well words cannot adequately describe it so I will stop. Put it on your house, trust me you will be very glad you did!!!”

How Does GenStone Work?

It’s sort of like a puzzle. We like to say that we’ve engineered the labor out by designing a 10 piece system that provides a solution for any obstacle you may encounter and can be easily installed using simple deck screws.

Life Tested, Lab Approved

Just how durable is GenStone? We ran our panels over with a two ton Jeep and smashed them with a sledgehammer in our durability videos without any sign of damage. Then we had a gamut of durability tests performed by an independent, world-class facility. GenStone products easily passed every test including acid rain, fastener pull-through, wind load and impact resistance evaluations.
