Automacad inc., Candiac, QC, J5R 6X1, Canada


It’s no wonder homeowners and contractors alike continue to turn to manufactured stone and stone veneer products to improve the look and value of residential and commercial structures. Manufactured stone is consistently ranked among the top performers in return-on-investment (ROI) in Remodeling magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report. In 2018, stone veneer was ranked the No 1 remodeling project with an average ROI of 97.1%. In some regions, the ROI spiked even higher, including the Pacific U.S. region at 125.5% ROI. Manufactured stone has been produced for decades; however, in recent years demand has increased due to the advantages it offers to homeowners and builders. One of the advantages of manufactured stone over brick or natural stone is reduced weight of about one-third to one-half. This makes manufactured stone veneer suitable for application on most homes without major structural modifications. Manufactured stone is also easier to install, reducing the time and skill required to achieve optimal results.
