The Difference is in the Details

GenStone orders come with a 25 year warranty
Cost per SQFT

AirStone will assist you with technical questions and helping you measure your wall.
GenStone Project Coordinators are available at no additional cost to assist with color selection, estimates and questions during installation

Airstone is a lightweight material that is like stone. It is lightweight enough to need just adhesive to attach it to the wall. Airstone products include individual stone pieces for walls and corner pieces. Airstone comes in three different colors. Each piece is made up of varying size and color. They also imitate the feeling of stone in their texture.

Established in 2003, GenStone manufacturers a full collection of stone and brick colors including easy to install panels, corners, ledgers, trim, pillars and columns. The majority of the materials used to formulate GenStone panels are sourced in the United States which are then cast and hand painted by artisans in Mexico.

Why a One by One Install is Nothing but Trouble

Inefficiency and Maintenance

Individual faux stone panels are one popular option when it comes to redecorating your home. But the real question here is “why?” Individual panels can likely come with a number of problems during installation and after completion.

The amount of time needed to separately piece each panel in its proper place is mind-boggling. It will take up to 75% more time installing each panel as opposed to installing larger chunk panels that include multiple individual stone pieces. What sounds like more fun to you, installing individual pieces over the course of the next month, or using large panels that you can complete in one weekend?

Separate stone pieces also will not be as strong as a bigger panel will. Each stone piece will likely give you more trouble in needing attention when one falls out of place. In contrast, a larger piece, covering multiple square feet, will be much more sturdy and unified to hold up in any kind of weather conditions.
