Choosing Stone Veneer Siding

Which color scheme and style are the best choice for your project?

GenStone offers a variety of easy-to-install stone veneer siding collections. Each product line is intended to complement most color schemes and designs, but some faux stone panels are more keen to modern, traditional or contemporary architecture.

Each siding selection offers several color options, so you can zero in on which combinations best suit your design. Once you’ve settled on one of the color schemes outline below, compare each of the four product lines including stacked stone, rock, brick and river rock to see which best appeals to you most.

Monochromatic House Siding

Different Shades Throughout the Siding

These color schemes use only one color with varying values of that color. For example, light blue, royal blue, navy blue and midnight blue is a monochromatic scheme. This combination is currently very popular in modern and contemporary homes and stores like Room and Board or Crate and Barrel.



Complementary Housing Siding

Opposites Attract

These color schemes use colors opposite of each other on a standard color wheel, creating a bold contrast. One color is usually dominant while the other provides an accent. Red and green are considered complementary.



Analogous House Siding

Harmonious Blend

These color schemes use three colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel. They are appealing to the eye because they are harmonious and often found in nature. One color should be dominate, while one supports, and the other accents.



Stacked Stone House Siding:

With eight different options, this line offers versatility in texture, pattern, size and color. That versatility ensures every project has its own unique personality.



The GenStone molding process, which uses a recessed grout line combined with tumbled brick, gives this line of faux brick panels a timeless quality that never goes out of style.


Random Rock House Siding:

This line of stone veneer siding offers a more traditional approach to exterior design. Its many color choices make it versatile enough for any project that needs the clean cut look of limestone patterns.


River Rock House Siding:

Using patterns that reflect stones found in the rivers of Alaska and the Midwestern United States, this line offers an authentic display of American nature.
