Our Canadian climate is subject to vast swings in weather from one season to the next. From the extremes of +30°C with the green trees of summer to that of -30°C in the snow-covered winter we are exposed to pretty much everything.
Living with those kinds of extremes can sometimes present a challenge when it comes to home design and construction. What kind of design and materials choice will both look good and provide the protection required with temperature swings of over 60°C
Modern technology has fortunately provided us with quite a range of excellent alternatives that offer both long-term beauty and the security of reliable shelter. Without question, one of the best construction options that satisfies both design and protection needs in an weather is Fusion Stone.
Our feature project this month is a great example of how Fusion Stone can be put to use to both enhance the exterior appearance of a home and provide superior, long term protection, irrespective of the weather
This home, featured in both winter and summer months, takes advantage of both the aesthetic and protection characteristics common to all Fusion Stone products. In this case, Fusion Stone Dry-Stack in the Charcoal colour encases the lower portion of this house in a beautiful wrap of good taste and security.
The variegated colour blend of Fusion Stone Charcoal sets the tone of contrast to the deep slate grey of the siding that clads the balance of the house as well as the distinct white of windows and doors. It also demonstrates how the traditional legacy of stone can work so well with contemporary design and materials.
Consider also that Fusion Stone is maintenance free and guaranteed for life. Add to that the insulating characteristics of stone and you have a great construction material choice from any perspective.
Don’t forget, Fusion Stone is available in three distinct profiles and comes in multiple colours. It is also available at over 1,500 locations across Canada. Ask your building supply retailer about Fusion Stone and visit fusionstone.ca.
Watch for our next feature project in February.
