Considering dropping top dollar on stone veneers but not convinced if it’s worth it? Apart from their obvious aesthetic boost, they offer other attractive features that provide quality of life improvements of your home that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Here are some of them:
Add Protection to Foundation
While it isn’t a complete replacement for the foundation your home rests upon, stone veneers act as a solid supplement to your home’s foundation. Stone veneers are quite strong and create a firm, compact coating over the exposed foundation to keep it from tipping and breaking.
The veneer is composed of several layers itself, with different materials used to keep the mortar and stone in place, so there’s a lot of resistance provided.
Covering Up Physical Damage
There’s a chance that you may end up with some damage to the walls of your home’s exterior or the walkway. A simple but elegant solution is to cover it up with stone veneers, putting up stones to block the unsightly spot. They look excellent and change the entire aesthetic of the place they cover-up. They add new layers of protection while bringing a new contrast, so they’re a win-win in each regard.
Similar to how stone veneers cover up the foundation to add protection, it also stops cold winds from permeating through the walls of your home. The extra layers of stone, mortar, and material used to set them up on the walls can block the air, helping keep the temperature of your home under control in the winter season. This feature is especially helpful for homes that get really cold in the winter.
