The Marvel of Masonry
Turn Your Ordinary Exterior into a Standout Sensation
First came man, and then came masonry. For centuries, humans have used stone and brick for shelter and protection. Today, homeowners value these natural materials as a way to connect with nature.
Curious as to how you can enhance your exterior with masonry products? Take a look at some of the ways that you can incorporate masonry, and discover the difference it can make for your curb appeal.
Highlighting the Focal Points
Each exterior has its own unique features and qualities. By adding masonry into the mix, you can leverage your home’s focal points for newfound appeal.
For example, perhaps your garage is front and center; however, because it matches the rest of your exterior, this focal point gets lost in the shadows.
Using either stone or brick, you can create a sharp contrast between various focal points and the rest of your home—ultimately, elevating your exterior with added dimension.
Our cedar panels harmonize beautifully with our premium masonry siding products to offer an elegant and refined look. Using basic design principles, you can make the most of your home’s focal points, and significantly boost your curb appeal in the process.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”? Well, this expression applies to your home exterior, too.
Let’s say that your property has drastic changes in elevation. You can either live with the stress of runoff or flooding—or, you can turn a burden into a benefit with retaining walls.
Using either Stacked Stone or Hand-Laid Brick, retaining walls add depth to your property. It seems like a small change; yet, you’ll be amazed by how much larger your property will appear when you make use of the space. Even better, retaining walls allow you to plant gardens and wildlife, turning your once desolate exterior into the envy of the neighborhood. Our masonry products are a great way to enhance the look of plain block walls.
Sometimes, home exteriors need a facelift. Sure, your vinyl siding might look nice, but it’s probably not working wonders, either.
The human eye is a very fickle thing; small adjustments can drastically change how we see things. When it comes to your home exterior, you can use human perception to your advantage.
Do you feel that your exterior looks too quaint? Consider skirting your home’s foundation with Stacked Stone in darker colors. By adding a compelling contrast, your home will appear larger and more grounded.
Anywhere & Everywhere in Between
No two homes are ever exactly the same. Even if the structures are identical, there are countless ways to make your home one of a kind. Ultimately, one of the most effective ways to do this is by utilizing masonry.
At Exteria Building Products, you can use our masonry siding products to unleash your exterior’s true potential. And, best of all, our composite panels deliver the aesthetics and durability of natural stone and brick—at a much lower cost.
