STONEfaçade from CertainTeed is an architectural panelized stone cladding system developed to provide vinyl siding professionals an opportunity to take part in the stone masonry segment of the exterior cladding market.
 
Each STONEfaçade panel has a continuous fastening flange for screw-in-place attachment; no mortar is required. Panels are eight inches high in 10-inch, 14-inch and 24-inch widths for installation that avoids repeating patterns. Perimeter edges are beveled to hide the substrate. The system is easy to master for vinyl siding installers.
 
Traditional stone products installed without proper drainage can allow moisture to accumulate in the wall cavity, with the potential for rot and other moisture-related problems. STONEfaçade addresses the issue with a rain screen. The 3/8-inch stainless steel insert creates space behind the panel for moisture to drain, while also serving as a reinforcement.
 
STONEfaçade panels are molded from natural stones that are individually selected and positioned to mimic hand-laid workmanship, while a hand-applied brushstroke technique captures the tonal variations of natural stone. STONEfaçade covers 110 square feet without repeating a pattern.
 
Available in the ledgestone style, CertainTeed designed the stone cladding system in four colors. Adirondack Snowfall features graduated tones of gray and off-white. Appalachian Twilight combines blended hues of gray and brown, while Pocono Autumn features variegated shades of brown, orange and yellow. Harbor Sunset mixes shades of burgundy and brown hues.
 
An array of accessories are available to complement STONEfaçade, including sills, corners and electrical and light boxes.
 
Maintenance requirements for STONEfaçade are minimal, providing a selling point for contractors. A soft bristle brush and a bucket of soapy water will keep the panels clean. The manufactured design does not need recaulking, tuckpointing and other repairs required by stone. STONEfaçade is covered by a 20-year warranty.
