Testing the Durability of Faux Stone

Ok so you’re convinced, the texture and colors of GenStone faux stone panels are convincingly authentic looking. Not to mention you’re sure you could install GenStone yourself, but how will your GenStone stand up to rain, sun, snow and even out of the ordinary events?

We thought the same thing, what good is a great looking, easy to install product if it falls apart under duress? So we hired Exova labs to put our panels to the test.

Independent Lab Testing

Early on as a company we knew we had to overcome the durability failures of other faux stone products before GenStone. We agreed with the general public that the majority of faux stone products could not be counted on to last, even through one harsh winter or hot summer. So, we sent a collection of our siding products to Exova, a leading global product testing organization.

GenStone’s Performance

As you can see below, the overall durability results of Exova’s evaluation of GenStone was overwhelmingly positive. In fact, our panels met or exceeded the requirements of each durability test, so it’s safe to say GenStone’s faux stone panels are not the faux siding panels you may have seen or used in the past.

The Results Are Impressive

Much of Exova’s testing results are very technical so we’ve summarized a few of the test results below in layman’s terms. If you have any questions about the extent of the testing or what it means for the longevity of your project, contact us and we will happily discuss each of the results.
