What Impacts the Cost of Adding a Stone Facade to Your Home?


If you are looking for a way to make a big impact on the curb appeal of your home, then you could be considering adding a stone facade to the front of it. After all, you might have seen other homes that have these facades, and you might really like the way they look. Before you commit to this type of project, though, you may want to find out how much it's going to cost. These are some of the different factors that can impact the cost of adding a stone facade to your home.

How Big Is Your Home?

The size of your home obviously matters when you're installing a stone facade. After all, this impacts the amount of material that is needed to complete the project. If you're going to be putting stone on the entire front of your home, for example, you can expect to pay more if you live in a large multi-story home than if you had a smaller home. The professional who is doing the project will take measurements of the front of your home, which will help them calculate how much material is needed and how much labor will go into the project.

How Much Stone Do You Want to Have Installed?

Of course, not everyone wants to put stone on the entire front of their home, and you might not be interested in doing this, either. You might just want to add small stone accents on either side of your front door, for example. You should look at a few examples of different stone facades to get an idea of how much stone you want to have installed. If you choose a smaller area, the cost of your project is going to cost quite a bit less than if you wanted to cover most or all of the front of your home.

What Type of Stone Are You Using?

The type of stone that you choose for your facade is going to greatly impact the look of your home and the cost of your project. A masonry service with experience working on different types of stone and experienced in installing stone facades on homes and other structures can talk to you about your different stone options. Then, you can choose the stone that is going to look best on your home and hold up well, all while fitting within your home improvement budget.

Beautiful Landscaping Can Transform the Look of Any Home

When my husband and I bought our house years ago, we thought it would be our "starter" home and we would move in a few years. We soon had two children, and we then decided against moving since we live in a great school district and we love our neighbors. However, I was growing very tired of the appearance of our home. We painted it a different color, and it still seemed like the "same old house" that we were tired of. We finally deciding that maybe good landscaping would "do the trick" and make our home more enjoyable to use again. We were right, and I now love our home! I now love spending time in our yard and just enjoying the scenery. I have such a passion for landscaping now I decided to create a blog about it. I plan to share many landscaping tips, so come back!
