genstone vs silvermine


Silvermine Stone Company was created to improve stone veneer and add an alternative product. The inventor was a mason who wanted to simplify the process of adding stone siding to homes and office buildings. Silvermine manufactures Belterra Stone Veneer for commercial and residential offices.


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.
