Did you know that adding Manufactured Stone Veneer (MSV) to your renovation project will add real value to your home? According to Remodeling Magazine, not only will MSV add real value, it provides the second highest return on your investment compared to all other home renovation projects! Based on their 2019 Cost versus Value Report, you can expect manufactured stone veneer to give a 94.9% return on investment!
According to the Qualified Remodeler, remodeling and home improvement activity will continue to be strong in 2019. Looks like “people aren’t moving as much as they once did. Today, the mobility rate—the average number of years between moves—stands at nearly 10 years, well above the 5.6-year average from just a few decades ago.” Since people are staying in their homes longer, they are making investments in them. By renovating with stone veneer you will not only beautify your home, but you are also more likely you get your money’s worth. Please keep in mind, while this information is based on data from the USA, Canada typically experiences similar trends.
Year over year, MSV is proving to be one of the most valuable products to make your home more attractive to buyers. If your project is in need of a face lift, then look at including a stone product that suits your residential exterior or interior design style. Whether you choose to go with manufactured stone, or decide on a natural stone, panelized stone, or even a stone siding product, you can expect to see similar returns on investment as MSV.
Here is an example of a home exterior makeover that used our Versetta Stone® manufactured stone siding. This home went from ordinary to extraordinary simply by removing their continuous vinyl siding, and replacing it with a mortarless and cement-based stone siding. What a way to add curb appeal and while adding real value to your home at the same time!
Versetta Stone® brings new life to traditional stone walls by simplifying the installation process. Backed by a 50-year warranty, this panelized stone can easily be installed with screws or nails by a siding contractor, carpenter or DIY weekend warrior. Versetta Stone® opens up a new world of design possibilities for exterior and interior applications, and allows the natural look of stone to be applied in unexpected places!
Another way to capitalize on the benefits of MSV is by renovating the interior of your home! Take this living room for instance, the homeowners chose to cover their existing old and worn-out brick with Cultured Stone® manufactured stone veneer. With Cultured Stone®, you can easily achieve the living space you have always dreamed off!
