Versetta Stone has a lot to offer any homeowner. Have you ever imagined giving your home a face lift in the bold look of stone? And did you then shudder at thought of the excessive cost and installation time?
Boral’s Versetta Stone, available at Arrowhead Building Supply, is a panelized stone veneer siding system intended to be installed by siding professionals. Versetta Stone is a non-structural, cement-based, manufactured product that delivers the beauty of traditional stone masonry without the usual hassles and high costs of the natural material.
The Versetta Stone palette is inspired by a variety of places around the world and the colors and textures that are unique to each. Boral brings authenticity to their stone veneer through patterns and stone shapes that precisely replicate natural stones. Cast in molds and hand-colored with iron oxide pigments, Boral captures the subtle nuances found in nature. Just like real stone, Versetta Stone withstands the weather in any climate.
Versetta Stone is made of lightweight aggregate materials that are approximately one-fourth the weight of full-thickness stone. The lightweight, mechanical fastening system allows your builder or contractor to install Versetta Stone without building footings for support, making it ideal for remodeling your home.
The structure and components are designed to effectively manage moisture by allowing water to be safely passed directly to the outside or through to the bottom of the wall system, which helps in preventing mold growth.
The main component of the Versetta Stone system, the Flat Panels are 8″ x 36″ and weigh approximately 17 lbs. Each panel is embedded with a G-90 galvanized nail strip that allows easy installation. The 3/16″ offset and pre-drilled weep holes in the nail strips are important parts of the moisture management system, allowing water to flow between the panel and the wall, eventually leading out of starter strips installed at the bottom of the wall system.
Manufactured the same way as the Versetta Stone Flat Panels, the Universal Corner is designed to be used for outside and inside corners as well as end wall terminations. The Versetta Stone Universal Corner is the perfect component to deal with corners and transitions.
Versetta Stone panelized stone veneer is in keeping with Boral’s high standard of excellence. With no need to paint, coat or seal, it is backed by a 50-year limited warranty including a onetime transfer. The Nail Strip comes with a 60-year corrosion resistance rating. When professionally installed, the panels bear a 110 mph wind load resistance. All Versetta Stone products have a Class A Fire Rating.
Versetta Stone panelized stone veneer products are also made from a minimum of 50% recycled content, validated by UL Environment. Sustainability is, after all, a core business tenet at Boral Stone Products LLC. Boral embraces the increasingly recognized definition of sustainability as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the future. Boral believes that being good neighbors is a requirement, not an option.
