Coffee Panel

Measuring 42″ wide and 12″ tall, the GenStone stacked stone panel features a 1″ shiplap edge along the top and right side of the panel making attaching the next panel not only seamless but also watertight. Each panel is cast from real stone into 4 unique molds to eliminate repetition.

Outside Corner

The 90º outside corner piece eliminates the need to miter panels when your installation demands a transition into another wall. This piece also creates the necessary offset pattern throughout the install. The positive shiplap edge along the left side of the piece allows panels joining from the left to slide under the corner. The negative shiplap edge on the right side provides a reliable connection to any panel installed to its right.

Inside Corner

The 90º inside corner piece is unique to the GenStone system. This panel eliminates the need to miter panels when you need to transition through an inside corner. Like the outside corner panel, this piece also creates the necessary offset pattern throughout the install. The positive shiplap edge runs along the left side of the panel and the negative shiplap edge follows the right side. Each shiplap is designed to provide a tight connection to panels joined to its right and left.

Ledger

The stacked stone ledger is designed to shed water and deliver a professional finish to a wainscot installation. The ledger is cast with a void under the backside of the piece that attaches securely to the positive shiplap of any panel or accessory.

Outside Corner Ledger

The outside corner ledger is engineered to fasten onto the shiplap of the 90º outside corner panel. The sloped design of the straight ledger makes it difficult to miter perfectly, making this inside corner ledger an ideal solution if you intend to transition your ledger through a 90º outside corner.

Inside Corner Ledger

The inside corner ledger is engineered to fasten onto the shiplap of the 90º inside corner panel. The sloped design of the straight ledger makes it difficult to miter perfectly, making this inside corner ledger an ideal solution if you intend to transition your ledger through a 90º inside corner.

12" LEFT RETURN

The 12″ return piece is also unique to the GenStone Made Easy System. This panel is used to finish an installation with a finished edge that can either wrap slightly around the outside corner of a wall or be installed on a flat wall to avoid painting the unfinished edge of a panel.

12" RIGHT RETURN

Similar to the left return, the 12″ right return piece is used to finish an installation with a finished edge that can either wrap slightly around the outside corner of a wall or be installed on a flat wall to avoid painting the unfinished edge of a panel.

Trim

GenStone trim can be installed horizontally or vertically. While you can certainly cut panels to fit around obstacles, trim pieces are simple to miter making this accessory the easy to install answer when you need to overcome installation hurdles such as doorways, windows, light fixtures, hose spigots, electrical outlets and more.

The GenStone made easy system consists of panels, corners, ledgers and trim. Watch the video below to see how our panels and accessories are designed to work with one another throughout your installation area.

Before you dive into planning your GenStone project, download the full stacked stone spec sheet and pay careful attention to the difference between coverage area that you will include in your measurements and the shiplap edges you will not include in your overall surface area.

Coffee Dimensions

Our pillar panels measure 48″ tall and are designed to wrap an 8″ square post. Each pillar panel can be stacked vertically for taller posts or cut down to accommodate posts less than 48″ tall. If your post is smaller than 8″ square, simply extend the post out with wood furring strips before securing the pillar panels.

Four 90º outside corner panels seamlessly fit together to wrap a 17″ square column. If your column is less than 17″ square but larger than 8″ square, enlarge the column with wood furring strips before attaching the corner panels. If your post is 8″ square or less, we recommend installing our pillar panels.

We recommend one touch up paint kit for every 400 square feet of GenStone installed. Paint kits are used to paint any raw exposed material resulting from cuts and to conceal holes left by fasteners in the face of the panels, trim and ledger. Each paint kit comes with the 3 primary colors you will need to finish your project like a pro.

GenStone Paint Kit

GenStone Big Stretch caulking is required for all exterior installations and recommended for interior projects. This caulking is applied along the shiplap edges of each panel and where panels connect to ledgers. Big Stretch caulking is elastic and will not crack if the structure moves which will help your seams stay tight and prevent any water penetration.

GenStone Caulking

One color match caulking kit is suggested for every 400 square feet of GenStone installed. Our color match caulking can be tinted to the exact color needed to fill in and conceal fastener holes in the face of the panels, ledgers and trim. A paint kit is needed to tint the caulking and we advise purchasing one extra paint kit in addition to paint intended for touchups.

How much caulking will I need?

We offer two types of caulking, Big Stretch white caulking (one tube every 100 SQFT) and Exact Match caulking (one tube every 400 SQFT). Big Stretch is used along the shiplap edges of the stacked stone panels and in the areas where our brick panels connect. It is also applied where ledgers meet the substrate and where panels connect to ledgers and trim.

Exact color can be tinted with a paint kit and is used to conceal visible fastener holes in the panels, ledgers and trim.

Is PL 300 adhesive required for all projects?
Adhesive must be applied on the back of each panel, ledger and trim in an "S" pattern for all exterior projects. Adhesive is not recommended for interior installations over drywall but is suggested for interior projects over brick, concrete and rock. Tyvek® HomeWrap® can be used on the substrate if you may consider removing the panels in the future.
How many paint kits will I need?

One paint kit for every 400 SQFT of GenStone installed is recommended for all exterior and interior projects. Paint must be used on all raw exposed material revealed by a cut as exposed raw material will yellow in the sun if left unpainted. Paint is also used to perfectly blend caulking used to conceal fastener holes.

We also suggest purchasing one dedicated paint kit for every one tube of Exact Color caulking. This dedicated paint kit will be used to tint the caulking.

Can GenStone be applied to concrete?
Yes, concrete cover ups are a very common application. To securely attach panels, ledgers and trim, PL 300 adhesive must be used on the backside of each piece and Tapcon concrete anchors should be used to fasten each piece.
What types of fasteners are required?

For exterior installations over wood and some stucco substrates, 1.625" non corrosive deck screws should be used to attach the panels while 2.50" non corrosive deck screws are recommended for ledgers. For concrete, brick and most stucco substrates, Tapcon concrete anchors are the best fastener choice.

Drywall screws can be substituted for deck screws for all interior installations over drywall. Tapcon screws should be used for interior projects over brick, concrete or other rigid substrates.

Can GenStone be installed on a fireplace?
Yes, GenStone fireplace projects are an extremely popular application. As a general rule, if the surface is too hot to touch while the heat source is in use, or if the flames may come in contact with the products, we would not recommend using GenStone in the area. If the area is not too hot to touch, GenStone should work well for the project.
Can GenStone be used indoors?
Yes, interior projects including fireplaces, bars, accent walls and entertainment centers are common. We encourage you to check with your local building department to see if Class A fire rated panels are required in your area. If Class A is required, Class A rated GenStone panels, ledgers, pillar panels and trim by are available by special order.
How do I install GenStone over brick or stucco?
Installations over brick and stucco are similar to a concrete cover up. PL 300 adhesive must be used in an "S" pattern on the backside of all panels, ledgers and trim in addition to Tapcon concrete anchors as fasteners. Some customers choose to apply Tyvek® HomeWrap® over the substrate in the event the GenStone may be removed in the future.
Does GenStone require starter strips?
No, starter strips are not required or recommended, which offers GenStone customers a substantial cost savings over the alternatives. Starter strips can cost as much as $10 per square foot and are required for all cast (concrete) based faux stone and brick products.
How do you cut GenStone?
All panels, ledgers, trim, caps, pillar panels and ledgers can be cut with any ordinary hand or power saw. We recommend using a hand saw or utility knife for small detailed cuts and a table or circular saw for the majority of all other cuts.
How is GenStone delivered?

GenStone is delivered to your home or job site in boxes. UPS will deliver all orders under 120 lbs and will not require a signature.

Orders over 120 lbs will be delivered on a pallet by a carrier with a lift gate. If your order is over 120 lbs, the carrier will call you on the phone number provided with your order to schedule delivery.

For all delivery related inquiries, you can open a support ticket with our dedicated fulfillment team by emailing [email protected]

Is GenStone waterproof?
Yes, when installed according to the install guides, GenStone is waterproof. GenStone can even be installed below grade. While the panels, ledgers and trim are comprised of a waterproof material, caulking and adhesive are the keys to ensuring your GenStone install is weathertight.
