Whether it’s standing on top of a hill or tucked in a forest, a stone house has the power to hit you with nostalgia as they carry with them a historic legacy built from centuries ago. No wonder many suburban houses with a stone exterior have popped up, instantly standing out from the rest of ordinary houses.
More and more homeowners have transformed their houses with a stone exterior, and it’s only natural given the stone’s sense of permanence and durability.
Stone houses can outlive their occupants and even last several lifetimes. On the downside, the stone is expensive. So other people opt for a synthetic stone veneer siding. It’s cheaper but has inferior quality than the real thing.
