The Beauty of Stone Made Easy

GenStone dry stack stone is a must for any homeowner who’s looking to improve the appearance of his or her home while investing in a product that offers many advantages over traditional natural stone. GenStone’s engineering process ensures that each panel is painstakingly cast from actual stone, creating a natural look and texture that is sure to please. GenStone faux stone veneer is much lighter than traditional stone and is easy to install. In addition, GenStone faux stone panels outperform natural stone in many durability and longevity tests. Unlike natural or cast stone competitors, GenStone panels will not degrade over time and fracture.

GenStone’s dry stack stone is a traditional natural-cut design and is available in a variety of colors, including Desert Sunrise, a warm beige base that is softly complemented by deep, earthy red and sand tones.

Simply Measure, Cut and Attach

The GenStone system was designed for the average do-it-yourselfer. Most projects require only ordinary hand tools and can be completed over the course of a couple of hours.  Each panel can be cut to size easily with a hand or motorized saw and attached with screws.

Every GenStone panel is cast from real stone, rock and brick to ensure authenticity. All panels receive 12 coats of meticulously hand painted details, which results in little to no repetition.

Which Stone is Right


When figure the materials needed for a project, you would need to take a measurement of the height and the length of the wall you intend to cover. Divide the height of the wall by the height of your panel (in most cases, 2’) and the length of the wall by the length of the panel (in most cases, 3.5’). Multiplying these numbers together will give the number of full panels need for the area. For trim and ledger, measure your linear footage and divide by 4. This will be the number pieces needed.

GenStone is made from a closed cell, high density, polyurethane foam. Not only are you protected from the elements, but it is safe to go all the way to the grade.
If you have a zero clearance fireplace, GenStone may be placed right against the unit. If the area around the fireplace gets hot to the touch, please contact the fireplace manufacturer for the specific distances necessary to safely install our products.
Starter strips are not required for installing US Genstone products. GenStone Proline products in Canada do require starter strips. but our new Pro-D collection does not. These strips can be purchased at your local hardware store.
We recommend one tube of GenStone color matched caulking for every 100 square foot of project.
