Did you know that adding Manufactured Stone Veneer (MSV) to your renovation project will add real value to your home? According to the 2022 Cost vs. Value report from Remodeling Magazine, not only will MSV add real value, but it also provides the second highest return on your investment compared to all other home renovation projects, 91.4% ROI to be exact! Among the 22 remodelling projects studied, when it comes to recouping your investment, renovations that included MSV finished second, just below garage door replacements.
MSV retaining its value is not a fad, it is a time proven trend. Since 2015 MSV has ranked in the top three each time, and it continues to remain stable in its growth. Please keep in mind, while this information is based on data from the USA, Canada typically experiences similar trends.
“What we once thought led to great returns, like kitchen and bath remodels, are much further down the list from manufactured stone veneer. Nowadays, you can get a much higher ROI from an interior or exterior application of stone veneer. It doesn’t take much to transform the appearance of your home, from increasing curb appeal by adding stone to the exterior, to interior applications that can easily become the focal point, like a fireplace or feature wall. The cost of stone application can typically be a fraction of the cost of other home renovations. In some cases, the ROI of MSV can be over 100%, so you actually can end up getting money back on your investment. With quality stone veneer from CSI, your investment will last a lifetime... we can't promise that other renovations will do the same!”

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.
