In the picturesque city of Stamford, CT, Stanley Hardscapes recently completed a stunning stone veneer installation and bluestone steps enhancement. This project exemplifies the blend of durability and visual appeal, redefining the aesthetics of a local residence through masterful stonework.

Repairing Old Foundation

Repairing the Old Foundation:

The home’s foundation had taken a beating from the hands of time with no help from the freeze and thaw cycles of Connecticut’s four seasons. Our masonry team got right to work meticulously preparing and repairing the foundation. We cleaned and reinforced the base of the foundation to ensure the veneer had a strong base, which is crucial for the structure’s durability and stability.

Selecting Stone Venee

Selecting the Stone Veneer:

The selection of the stone veneer was pivotal in aligning with the homeowner’s vision and the architectural ethos of the area. Our consultation resulted in choosing a premium stone veneer that elevates the home’s facade and withstands the local climate’s demands. The veneer’s natural color variations beautifully echo the surrounding environment.

Crafting Bluestone Steps

Installing the Stone Veneer:

Our craftsmen executed the installation with utmost precision. They employed advanced techniques to align and secure each veneer piece, transforming the foundation into a visually impressive exterior that harmonizes with nature’s charm.

Bluestone Steps with Stone Risers:

The project highlighted bespoke bluestone steps designed for both aesthetics and functionality. Each step, made from durable bluestone and supported by solid stone risers, enhances the architectural transition from the driveway to the main entrance. Their meticulous installation ensures durability and provides a striking visual impact.

Stone Veneer Frequently Asked Questions:

Stone Veneer FAQs
Yes, stone veneer can be applied right at grade on foundations. At Stanley Hardscapes, we often attach our superior natural thin veneers, like Stoneyard® natural thin veneer, directly to backer boards or concrete foundations, ensuring a durable and visually appealing finish.
To install stone veneer on cement foundations, it’s vital to start with a clean, structurally sound surface. We use cement boards as a substrate, offering a consistent and solid base that enhances the installation’s ease and reliability, compared to traditional methods.
For superior adhesion and longevity, we recommend using cement board as the base for stone veneer. This approach provides a stable and uniform foundation, simplifying the installation process.
Our skilled masons expertly apply thin natural stone veneer, like the Boston Blend, to mimic the look of genuine stone on concrete foundations. This technique not only boosts the aesthetic value but also strengthens the structural integrity of the foundation.
