Beautiful Stone Cladding Options for Philadelphia, PA, Homes
Discover the transformative power of stone cladding and why Five Star Contractors is a trusted choice for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, homeowners. Our expertise lies in three main types of stone cladding: natural stone veneer (NSV), manufactured stone veneer (MSV), and natural thin stone. Each option has unique characteristics and advantages, ensuring a perfect fit for every project.
Natural Stone Veneer (NSV) for Exquisite Style
Experience the allure of natural stone without the high cost and labor-intensive installation. Unlike traditional stone installations, NSV does not require a stone ledge, making it a more cost-effective and versatile choice. Our skilled craftsmen apply a galvanized lath to the wall, followed by the application of Type-S Cement. Finally, individual pieces of NSV are embedded in the cement, creating a stunning pattern reminiscent of natural stone. Whether your home has wood sheathing, brick, block, or concrete, NSV can be applied to any structurally sound surface.
Manufactured Stone Veneer (MSV) for Affordable Elegance
Our MSV offers the perfect balance for those seeking affordability without compromising on elegance. MSV is meticulously crafted by Portland Cement to resemble natural stone veneer. Through advanced molding techniques and iron oxides, we achieve vibrant, long-lasting colors that weather excellently over time. MSV is a cost-effective alternative to natural stone, offering exceptional durability for less labor. Plus, any cracks or chips in the veneer will blend in, maintaining the natural stone-like appearance.
Natural Thin Stone for Timeless Sophistication
Our natural thin stone option is the ultimate choice for those seeking the pinnacle of luxury and sophistication. Crafted from genuine natural stone, this cladding option exudes beauty and timelessness. Our expert craftsmen meticulously install each piece, creating a seamless and captivating facade. With its stone ledge foundation, natural thin stone provides a distinctive aesthetic appeal that is simply unmatched.
