Faux Stone Siding for Metal Buildings
With GenStone, Your Steel Building Doesn't Have to Look Like a Steel Building
Many businesses, and even residential homes, are taking advantage of the efficiency of steel construction. Metal buildings offer several advantages over traditional wood structures, including strength, durability, and faster construction timelines. But despite these functional advantages, metal buildings are often an awkward fit aesthetically due to the surrounding landscape or municipal code requirements.
Over Existing Metal Siding
One of the best ways to enhance the look of a steel building is by upgrading its metal siding. GenStone panels, ledgers and trim are the perfect custom siding solution that gives business owners and homeowners the opportunity to improve the aesthetic impact of their building without sacrificing the functional superiority of steel construction.
GenStone installs over any flat surface including existing metal siding. Each GenStone panel has a positive shiplap edge which allows the installer to align the fasteners and adhesive with the building’s high ribs. Furring strips can be installed between the ribs to strengthen the connection between GenStone and the substrate.
GenStone metal building siding projects include wainscoting projects as well as more large-scale projects including accent walls. Each siding project has the ability to transform a standard steel building into an impressive home for you or your business. Take a look at the many metal building siding projects that our customers have already completed.
