The National Concrete Masonry Association eNews reported today that the addition of a high quality manufactured stone veneer to an existing home was proven once again to be one the best possible investments that a homeowner can make to improving the value of their home. Remodeling magazine’s 2017 Cost vs. Value Survey reported that manufactured stone veneer provides an 89.4% return on investment. The 29 projects in the 2017 report paid back an average of 64.3 cents on the dollar in resale value by comparison.
Manufactured Stone Veneer is a man-made product that has the appearance of natural stone, but is manufactured using concrete, a lightweight aggregate and high quality dyes. Today this type of veneer is increasing in popularity nationwide and being used to give commercial, residential and landscape applications a rich, upscale look.
