Pillar panels are sold individually because they can be cut down or stacked vertically to accommodate the size of height of your install area. Each panel is 48″ tall and designed to wrap an 8″ square post. Furring strips can be used to extend a smaller post out to 8″ before attaching the panels. If your post is larger than 8″ square, we recommend creating a GenStone column with four 90º outside corner panels.

Each cap can be easily attached to the pillar using adhesive and deck screws.

Simply Measure, Cut and Attach
The GenStone system was designed for the average do-it-yourselfer. GenStone projects require only ordinary hand tools and most projects can be completed over the course of a couple of hours. Each panel can be cut to size easily with a hand or power saw and attached with screws and adhesive.
More Attention to Detail
Every GenStone panel is cast from real stone or tumbled brick to ensure authentic shapes and texture. All panels receive 12 coats of meticulously hand painted details, which results in little to no repetition.

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.
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.
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.
