Meet the GenStone Do-It-Yourself Faux Stone Veneer System
When we set out to design the most do-it-yourself friendly system for faux stone panels, our goal was to provide DIY homeowners with a solution for every possible installation scenario. Our initial faux stone system included just seven pieces, followed by more pieces we created based on feedback from our customers.
Today we offer faux stone panels designed by engineers, cast from real stone and an install system perfected by true do-it-yourselfers.
Below we will discuss how each of these pieces were designed to work together and how each piece in the system plays a unique role in your improvement project.
Our full panel is by far the most popular piece in the GenStone system. It quickly creates a seamless connection with any piece in the GenStone system. In the demonstration below, two full panels are used to complete the connection to the corner piece.
Our corner panels are the same size as our half panel except the right or left side has a one-inch return. This piece is useful if you are terminating your faux stone at a corner and would like a wrapped look, which gives the appearance of depth.
When it comes to finishing an inside corner, you have two options. You can either miter two panels to meet seamlessly in the corner or you can opt to terminate into an inside corner piece. Either installation option results in a professional looking finish.
Like the inside corner, using trim simply boils down to preference. Our trim pieces come in handy when your GenStone install runs across a door, window, hose bib or even a light fixture.
If you are terminating your faux stone panels partway up a wall, our ledger is a great finishing piece. No only does this accessory give your wall a professional looking finish, it is designed to shed water away from your wall and fit into the ship lap of all panels.
While not pictured here, the corner ledger provides a 90-degree ledger. This accessory works well with the corner piece and is particularly useful if you are installing a half-wall around a corner.
