What is Fusion Stone?
Fusion Stone is a stone veneer that is manufactured sustainably. We use the highest quantity of recyclable materials possible without sacrificing strength or appearance. Fusion Stone is durable, rugged, modern, and the perfect interior or exterior material for walls on houses, cottages, businesses, boathouses, barns, gazeebos, and everything in between! Fusion Stone is both decorative and protective, adding a unique touch to your property, while also shielding it from the elements. It is washable, fire resistant, and even insulates. Best of all? It is inexpensive, easy to install!
How does Fusion Stone compare to other materials?
Compared to traditional stone, Fusion Stone is lighter, customizable, easier to cut and install, less expensive, and more environmentally friendly. Unlike traditional stone, Fusion Stone is not quarried, and is made of recyclable materials.
There are other stone veneers on the market, but none can match the revolutionary manufacturing system behind Fusion Stone. Most of our stone veneer competitors use a thin slice of real stone over a composite material, or simply colour the outer layer of a composite material. Fusion Stone maintains its colour and design all the way through.
Can I install Fusion Stone myself?
Yes, absolutely! Anyone who has some basic DIY experience is capable of installing Fusion Stone. All you need is a drill, a saw, a rubber mallet, a level, and a tape measure. Fusion Stone even provides you with the drill bit in your Fusion Stone kit. The only additional material that you will need to purchase is plywood or OSB. Of course, also please remember to use safety equipment whenever you are handling tools.
