GenStone vs Silvermine
"The install guide says to keep it away from water because it would discolor it. I don't know what you'd do about rain or a sprinkler system. If it's meant to be outside, it has to handle the weather"
This focus group was assembled for the purpose of comparing and contrasting different faux stone producers. Some of the criteria to judge each product was appearance, material, and installation process. Not a single person on this focus group was hand-picked. Every individual had not heard or seen any of the products used. These are their personal, authentic opinions.
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.
