Updating an aluminum siding exterior using cultured stone veneer

IMG_0984

Even though we have a foot of snow outside, it’s time to start thinking about springtime home improvement projects.

This house is one of my favourite projects. The homeowner wanted to update his all-siding home that he had just purchased in Horseshoe Valley. He told me that he loved everything about this home, except it’s tired-looking aluminum siding exterior.

The result speaks for itself. The cultured stone veneer was a quick and easy way to really increase the curb appeal of this home. I’ve now done several projects involving the replacement of aluminum siding with cultured stone. If done properly, it is a simple but stunning home update. Check out the before and after shots below:
