Stone siding is durable and requires little to no maintenance. Available in a wide range of colors, textures and sizes, stone is adaptable to just about any aesthetic.

While stucco can be applied to homes with brick and stone surfaces, the classic look is used to give a home a Mediterranean, ranch or Spanish looking exterior.
Because stucco is very rigid, careful installation can help reduce the possibility of unwanted cracks. When stucco siding is properly installed and maintained, it can last the lifetime of the house.
