Walling Your Home

All home owners like to use and are always looking for creative ways to make their home more beautiful and to show off their personality at the same time. But for those who have done these kind of home improvement projects before, they know that installing brick veneer or re-paneling a wall takes a lot of time and requires professional assistance from stonemasons or bricklayers most of the time. Not many people would like to waste such time and money for a wall modification job.

Fortunately, that may be a problem of the past now as we have an option of fake stone paneling. All the natural materials of the paneling can add a wonderful look to your house, giving you a warmer feeling which makes the interiors more stylish. Fake panels are like an exact replica from the original materials thus bringing them a real texture and they are hand painted to give them a complete authentic finishing looks.

Stone, rock or thin brick panels are designed with the capability to join into each other, similar to a jigsaw puzzle. To attach them to the wall during installation, you simply glue them and screw it in. Begin with the bottom course until you reach the top. Also, to add the final touches, use color matched caulk to seal the gaps, seams and miss cuts. Caulking can help the panel to seal the moisture and provides a completely seamless look.

Fake panels have lots of advantages including being fire-resistant and cost-effective. Proper caulked panels will be watertight sealed and UV resistant, which is perfect to be installed both inside and outside your home. If you don't have much time and money to waste for your home improvement idea, these faux panels are the best choice for you and they come in a variety of options. Last but not least, this is a possible do-it-yourself task.
