How enVision Is Changing The Stone Veneer Game

When you look at stone exteriors of homes and buildings, you might think that they look quite traditional. But just how far back does stone veneer date, and how has it changed over the years?

An Overview Of Stone Veneer

Stone veneer, or stone siding, today is used as a decorative exterior option for homes and architecture, but at one point it was used more as a protective barrier from the elements and other enemies. There are two types of stone veneer: natural and manufactured. Natural stone veneer is cut to a certain thickness and affixed to a wall or structure. In general, this stone must not weigh more than 15 pounds per square foot. If it exceeds this weight, then extra structural supports will need to be installed. Manufactured stone veneer is created to look like natural stone but is a much cheaper option, as well as easier to install. However, while natural stone is one of the most durable exteriors available, manufactured stone can fade and crack.

enVision Stone: The New Standard In Manufactured Stone

We have been developing our stone veneer spray for years to ensure that it can withstand the test of time just like real stonework. We’ve done this by creating our veneer from real stone – meaning it is as strong as stone, but lightweight and less expensive. This means you save time and money when you install enVision real stone veneer.

Okay, now that you know a little more about stone veneer in general, let’s discuss the history of its use in design and construction.

Ancient Rome

The use of stone veneer wasn’t prominent until the late 1800s, but there are ruins from as early at 70 AD that suggest the use of stone veneer. Most notably, parts of the Roman Colosseum were adorned with marble siding, which has since been lost through time. However, there are still holes in the Colosseum from structural supports that anchored the marble veneer panels to the building. This type of veneer can be seen throughout other parts of the Roman Empire, including stone block veneer in aqueducts and other structures.

Late 19th Century

During the span of time between the Roman Empire and the late 1800s, there was not a whole lot of headway in the use of stone veneer. However, just before the turn of the 20th century, modern stone veneer siding began to emerge. Large pieces of natural stone were cut into big slabs, and then hand chiseled to the appropriate size and thickness for stone panels. These stones ranged from granite and marble to limestone and slate. Originally, this type of veneer was only used for interior projects and street-level facades.


Up until this point there wasn’t a ton of regulation regarding the thickness of the stone panels, but during this time one-and-a-half inches became standard thickness. These stone veneer panels were affixed using both mortar and steel support anchors for added stability. With this more sturdy method of application, stone veneer began to complete entire building facades.


Most of the stone veneer construction that we see today stemmed from this time period. During this time, transportation methods improved and the cost of stone veneer dropped significantly. New methods were also developed to attach veneer to new surfaces.


As technology progressed, stone veneer was able to be cut down to about ⅛ inch thick in the 1980s, but today is usually around 3 centimeters in thickness. These days, stone is becoming more popular as a “green” choice for building materials, but it is also a more expensive siding than other exterior options.

Stonework is gorgeous and desirable, but can also get expensive for a big project. That’s why enVision Stone has developed our real stone veneer spray that looks just like traditional stonework, is made from real stone, and is just as durable. However, it is lightweight and easy to apply, saving you time and money while still giving a timeless look to your home.

Save Time And Money With Envision

Our spray stone siding installation and materials will cost you about half the price of traditional masonry construction, while still being a quality product. Don’t believe that “spray on stone” can look as great as the real thing? Sometimes you have to see it to believe it.

How To Upgrade Homes To Fit Any Style With Real Stone Veneer

When many people think of stone exteriors, their mind may go to one or two styles of homes that traditionally have masonry work. But adding real stone veneer to the exterior of a home can greatly enhance the style of the home without distracting from key characteristics. Today we wanted to take a moment to discuss five of our favorite traditional home styles, and how you, as a contractor, could enhance your client’s home with our enVision Stone spray stone veneer without the hefty price tag of traditional stonework.

Spanish Colonial Revival: This is the quintessential Southwest style home, characteristically adorned with white stucco exterior and red clay roofs. These houses are abundant where we are in Texas, and can be found throughout the south and into California. Many of your clients may be looking for a way to upgrade their traditional home while still staying true to a Spanish style. One key to Spanish Colonial homes is that they are designed to look natural, as if they popped up straight from the ground. Therefore, to keep with the style, you’ll want to use a light-wash real stone veneer finish with an organic pattern. While changing the white stucco exterior might take away from the Southwest charm, these homes traditionally have an inner courtyard that acts as an extension of the living space. While these courtyards are sometimes made from brick or tile, opting for a light wash stone veneer patio can create that truly natural look that brick and tile can’t achieve.

Craftsman: Craftsman style homes are characterized by quaint features like dormers, exposed chimneys, and covered porches supported with battered columns. These homes make the perfect candidate for using real stone veneer to enhance their features. The craftsman home was born from the Arts and Crafts Movement in Europe, and unlike Spanish style homes, they are known for having multiple textures and mediums – as if someone did an arts and crafts project. Adding stone veneer exterior to dormers, columns, and chimneys adds an incredible amount of character to the home, and will definitely make your clients happy. To tie everything together, adding a stone veneer skirt to a wrap-around porch looks great in any landscape.

Ranch Style: Ranch style homes are popular throughout America because of their ability to suit open floor plans. They are usually asymmetrical and wider than they are deep, meaning they have a long, bare exterior with minimum ornamentation. With just a stucco or vinyl exterior, these houses can, frankly, look a little boring from the front curb. One way to break up the monotony is to add a stone wainscoting to the exterior that hits just below the window level. This adds dimension and character to the home, but can get very expensive if using real stonework because there is so much area to cover on a ranch style home. That’s where EnVision Stone Real Stone Veneer comes in. Application is quick and easy, and will save your client thousands of dollars while still getting the home of their dreams. For this wainscoting, we recommend using a smaller, tighter stone pattern, but as always, talk to your client and find what style they are going for.

Tudor Style: Tudor homes are few and far between these days, and the people who buy Tudor homes do so because they love the style and it’s not something they want to give up. Tudor homes are medieval-meets-renaissance, and have steeply pitched gable roofs, oversized chimneys, ornamental doorways, and an exposed wood frame, with stucco or stonework between the beams. If your client does not want to update the original exterior of the home, perhaps you can suggest a stone pathway that will add a cottagey feel to the home. Using a cobblestone-like pattern with real stone veneer will keep things looking traditional and cozy. However, if the home’s stonework is falling apart, you can update the exterior with our stone veneer spray that is mold resistant so it won’t rot the walls underneath.

Antebellum Style: These are the homes that you drive by in the south and think, “Wow, these people must have a LOT of money.” These homes are also called plantation homes, and are known for having towering Greek pillars and columns, multiple balconies, symmetrical and evenly spaced windows, a covered porch, a grand entryway, and an elegant staircase on the interior. These are the type of homes you see on a large estate, and often times these are passed down through a family. So you may be wondering what else could we add to this already extravagant home? If you have a client in one of these houses, there is actually a lot you could do to enhance their homes. Adding a sprawling stone veneer pathway in the backyard that opens up into a garden is a great place to start. You could also create a beautiful stone patio, or even enhance the backyard with an outdoor fireplace they would be sure to love.

Why Use enVision Spray Stone Veneer?

Use Texture To Transform Walls

If you have ever studied interior design or even spent any time watching home improvement or home design shows, you have probably heard the designers talking about texture. Whether you are a homeowner, contractor, or architect, being aware of what texture can do to a home or a business is essential in having a happy family and happy customers. Many people aren’t aware of the space around them and the influence simple design elements can have on their mood, but designers can spend years on their craft and that includes experimenting with texture. The effect that stone can have on a space, balanced with other textures and elements is huge. If you’re in the midst of a renovation, consider the power of using real stone veneer from enVision Stone for your home or construction project.

What is Texture?

spray stoneTexture is the sensation that is caused by feeling and seeing the surface of objects. Most people will say that texture is mostly about what someone feels physically on their fingertips when they touch something. However, you also see texture with your eyes and can imagine how it would feel, whether that’s a furry coat, a wood tabletop, or a real stone wall; and whether those items can be physically touched or you’re just looking at the pages of a magazine. You might want to take pictures of your renovation when it’s complete and you want viewers to see and feel the texture in the space. Using real stone veneer on the walls of your space, you can create a texture that is inviting and still warm.

Add Visual Weight

In the design world, visual weight means allowing the space to draw attention to itself. When people walk into your home, office, restaurant, or view the outside walls of the building, they might not immediately be drawn to the walls of the space; that is, unless there is something there to draw the eye. Just like you may have heard that a blue room has a calming effect and a red room can raise your energy level, texture can do the same thing. A rough real stone wall is more likely to make the space feel intimate and grounded and smooth textures can make the space feel sleek and aloof.

Texture Adds Balance

An architect or interior designer will know that even if you want an intimate space, you wouldn’t want a stone floor, stone walls, and a stone table. There needs to be a balance. With soft couches, warm curtains, and a grainy wood table, the real stone walls will fit right in.

real stone veneerThe Stone Itself Can Be a Variety of Textures

At enVision Stone, there are several options of our real stone veneer. We have patterns that are smaller for a feature bathroom wall, larger pieces that would make your living room wall look like a castle, thicker, natural pieces that do wonders to a fireplace, and styles with just the right depth and shape to design your kitchen backsplash with.

Utilizing real stone veneer as a focal point in any space draws the viewer’s eye in and creates a desire to touch the surface and to interact with the space. This desire to interact with the space will give your guests or clients an opportunity to stay longer and feel more at home and comfortable within the space. This is the purpose of using design elements such as texture in any renovation.

Why Stone Veneer?

Installing stone veneer will save everyone involved in the project time and money. Whether you’re using the stone for an inside wall, or for outdoor stone veneer, the effect is the same. The texture draws viewer’s eyes to the surface. enVision Stone designed the product to be a lightweight stone veneer so that it can be incorporated into any space and will provide an intimate and warm environment.

Utilizing and being aware of design elements, especially texture can improve any home or business renovation. Creating a balance of textures with rough stone and soft materials will create an inviting and unique space. To save money in addition to designing a beautiful space, use real stone veneer from enVision Stone. Create feature walls in your space that can only be described by the texture.

Why Your Restaurant Needs a Patio

It’s a fact: restaurants with outdoor seating make more money. reported in 2015 that restaurants with outdoor seating see increases in their revenue of up to 30%. That’s a huge bump and a giant return on your investment for installing a patio space. Outdoor seating is a popular option here in Dallas, where many restaurants packed on the weekends offer an outside seating option. It’s a great place to cool off after a hot day, enjoy the Texas sun, or see and be seen in the hippest areas of town. With over 3,500 restaurants in the Dallas area, a great patio can be a wonderful way to make your establishment stand out from the crowd.

If your restaurant doesn’t already have a patio, it’s time to invest. It can help bring vital new business in a crowded restaurant market. So how do you get started?

Find the right contractor.

Working with the right contractor on your patio installation is going to make the entire process much easier. They’ll be able to use their experience to help you find solutions to issues, save money, and get the job done right. A great contractor can guide you through the process with minimal disruption to your business and make it as stress-free as possible. Look for reviews online for local Dallas contractors if you don’t already have someone that you trust. Look for contractors who have restaurant renovation experience, and ideally, someone who has experience with patios, too.

How to Save Money on Your Business Renovations

Your client is making a big investment when they start renovations on their business. Whether it’s a preschool, a dental practice, an insurance office, or virtually any other business, it can benefit from a renovation that creates a more modern, welcoming, and professional appearance for the inside and outside of the business. Some of the benefits of renovating your business include:

  • Improving employee morale. It’s easier to be motivated and eager to come to work when you are working in a new, clean, modern-looking building.
  • Attracting more walk-in customers. Customers are going to notice a business more when the building looks nice and want to come inside to learn more.
  • Customers are more likely to have a favorable first impression of a business if they are impressed by the appearance. Many customers feel that a well-kept and modern-looking building means the owner is more invested in their business, and thus, their customer service.

The investment that your client is making in the appearance of their business is worth every penny, and they are likely to see returns on their investment in the form of employee and customer loyalty. As a contractor, it’s important that you help your client get the most out of every penny that they spend on the investment that they make in business renovations. Our team has some great ways to help your client save money on renovations without sacrificing style or quality.

Use These Tips to Save on Renovating a Business

interior stone veneerUse real stone veneer instead of traditional stonework.

Stonework is some of the most expensive and labor-intensive renovation work you’ll do on a building. Both the materials and the labor involved to install them can be cost prohibitive. Many clients are going to want stone additions to their existing structure because of the sophistication it brings to a building. Instead of blowing the entire renovation budget on stonework, though, you can use real stone veneer and save big. Real stone veneer is sprayed onto almost any surface that you want, including siding, floors, cement paths, and more. A template is applied and the details are finished by skilled tradesmen. The end result is something that looks like it took weeks to create but is done in a matter of hours…and at a fraction of the cost.

See if employees are willing to pitch in.

If a business is coming to a standstill during the renovations, this could even help the employees earn some money until the business is reopened. Employees can be put to work disassembling old furniture, putting together the new stuff, or even painting walls depending on their skills and abilities. Make sure it’s alright with their employer for them to pitch in and then ensure the work they are doing is safe. However, using them to get some of these smaller tasks done can help your client save on their labor costs for the renovation, giving them more money to put into the decor and final look.

Reuse what you can, recycle what you can’t.

Many businesses assume that during a renovation, they’ll need to get rid of everything and start over in order to achieve the right look. That’s not true! In fact, a lot of what the business is using can be reused and repurposed. You can refinish wooden surfaces or change their look entirely with a real stone veneer. This saves you on the cost of replacing the piece and will probably take minimal elbow grease. If items can’t be repurposed, get rid of them responsibly. Look into recycling options, or better yet, sell the items to another local business who can use them and put that money back into the renovation budget.

spray stoneUpgrade wisely and at the right time.

Not everything has to be upgraded immediately, either. If your client is on a tight budget, encourage them to take the renovation in phases. For instance, focus on exterior improvements first, then move onto the interior renovations next. Or, get the structure looking its best, then upgrade the furniture later on. It’s nice when you can get everything done at once, but it’s not absolutely necessary. Waiting could allow you to save even more money, too, by shopping sales and waiting for price drops on necessary materials for the renovation tasks. Taking it in stages allows you to save more for each step, too, which could potentially help your client avoid more business debt later on.

Put these ideas to work and see how much further your business renovation budget can go! We’ll help with the real stone veneer. Our product is perfect for businesses renovating on a budget who still want the end result to look incredible.

Enhance Walls in a Home or Office With This Easy Trick

Are you an architect or contractor looking for new ways to help your clients stretch their budget while transforming the look of their home or office? It’s a tough balance to achieve. You want to provide them with a renovation that leaves them happy and a bill that doesn’t wipe the smile off of their face. Often, clients want the world when it comes to their renovation plans, but they don’t have the budget to back that up. One of the biggest surfaces of an interior space is the walls. Transforming these during a renovation can be a quick way to provide a fresh new look. So what are your options?

Ways to Transform Walls in a Home or Office

  • It’s inexpensive. Paint is often one of the first things on a renovation list due to its relatively inexpensive cost and high impact.
  • It’s easy to apply. It doesn’t take an experienced painter long to apply a fresh coat of paint to a wall and it dries in just a few hours.


  • It might not be a total transformation or enough of a change for your client. Clients might not be satisfied with a simple coat of paint or feel that this goes far enough to renovate their space into what they’ve imagined.
  • It has to be redone every few years. Paint gets dirty and popular colors quickly go in and out of style. What looks great now might look dated in just a few years time, meaning clients will be looking for another renovation.


stone veneer sidingPros

  • It can add a lot of elegance to space and enrichen it. Stone has a classic, beautiful look that is absolutely timeless. Stone walls don’t go out of style and will age with the home or office well.
  • Waterproof, weatherproof, and corrosion resistant. This makes the stone a terrific choice for both interior and exterior walls because it can stand up to wild Texas weather.
  • It lasts for years, even decades! Thanks to the timeless appeal and durability of the materials, stone walls can be around for virtually a lifetime. Once it’s applied, your clients won’t have to think about it again.


  • The labor and materials can be prohibitively expensive. Not only do they have to invest in the materials to complete the work, your clients will have to pay a skilled craftsman for their services in actually building the wall.
  • It can take a long time for the project to be completed. Depending on the materials, the size, and the skill of the craftsman, some stone walls can take weeks or even longer.

Why Real Stone Veneer Is the Best of Both!

Real stone veneer combines the pros of both paint and stone. Our special process is fast, so work can be completed much faster than waiting for a traditional stone wall to be built. The process doesn’t take much longer than paint, and it’s a fraction of the cost of a traditional stone wall to be put in place. Stone veneer has all the richness of real stone, too, because it’s actually made of real stone. That means your clients get all of the same stone benefits: waterproof, weatherproof, and their new veneer lasts for decades without needing to be maintained or redone. It’s an incredible value for their money; clients get a beautiful look that lasts for decades at a fraction of the cost. This will make them–and you–very happy.

How to Give an Old Restaurant a Fresh Look

A restaurant’s interior and exterior decor have a huge affect on its bottom line. If people perceive the exterior to be run-down or old-fashioned, it’s unlikely that they’ll ever make it through the door. If the outside entices them inside and they that the interior is outdated or shabby, they are more likely to have a bad impression of the food no matter how good it might be and are unlikely to come back. There are more than 3,500 restaurants listed on Trip Advisor for the Dallas area, so people have plenty of options when they are looking for a bite to eat. That’s why it’s so important for restaurant owners to make sure their look is up-to-date, appealing, and welcoming to potential customers.

If you are an architect, designer, or contractor working with a local restaurant to help them renovate their look, it’s important that you manage their budget extremely carefully. Restaurants are often working with razor-thin budgets to start with, so taking money out to do the renovations can be a big sacrifice and you’ll want to do it right. It’s important to pick the right elements to renovate that can provide the biggest impact without overstretching the budget. With the help of our real stone veneer in Dallas, you can get the job done and help revitalize an old restaurant.

A lot of older restaurants used carpeting when they were first built, but that look is severely dated now.
