Faux Panels is pleased to expand its faux stone paneling options by adding Versette. These cultured stone siding panels provide the most realistic stone feel and appearance yet without the need for a stone mason. It allows homeowners to create the appearance of classic stone buildings with a modern installation method that combines beauty and practicality.
“For years, cultured stone installation required stone masons and reinforcement so it was out of reach for many consumers. Versette removes those obstacles so more homeowners can get the most realistic stone appearance ever without those expenses,” said Steve Barron, president of Faux Panels.
Made from molds of real stone with a lightweight cement-based aggregate material, Versette is strong yet one-quarter of the weight of full stone. That means the walls it’s used on rarely need special reinforcing, unlike routine cultured stone projects.
Thanks to Versette’s screw-in panels, specialty stone masons aren’t required but anyone touching it will be completely convinced you purchased pricy stone work. It also provides a professional looking design without breaking a budget.
Labor costs are lower and installation time is much quicker, too. Versette’s special fastening system means that contractors can install this stone siding easily, as can experienced do-it-yourselfers.
Like real stone, it doesn’t attract termites. Versette is also low maintenance because it doesn’t require coating, sealing or painting, in addition to being highly durable.
In both Random Rock and Ledgestone designs, this cultured stone paneling can be used to cover an entire room or house, as trim or an accent wall. With its Class-A fire rating, it’s perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.
Both the Ledgestone and Random Rock designs come in three colors. Sterling is a perfect neutral that can be used virtually anywhere. Plum Creek mixes grays and browns with a hint of the lavender found in certain quarries. Tera Rose is a warmer neutral that fits everything from Southwestern to contemporary designs.
Even better, since it’s not cut from a quarry, it’s easier on the environment. Plus, the molding process for Versette uses up to 50 percent recycled materials, which reduces waste.
“Offering Versette kicks things up to a higher level while still giving our customers a high quality product that’s beautiful and affordable,” said Barron.
For those who want the appearance of genuine quarried stone, Versette is the smart choice.
