Exterior Stone Work Making the Siding Match the Stone

We recently finished an exterior stone job on a home in the Northwest Suburbs, and wanted to show off the amazing results! Thieproject turned out great! The customer had already had their blue siding installed and the color of the siding didn’t match the brick.

The customer was extremely happy with the results and even left us a great review on Houzz- (visit us on Houzz to learn more!)

“We replaced the siding on our recently purchased house with a fairly bold color. With the dramatic change in the siding, the brick on the lower half was not only outdated and in need of repair, but no longer matched. Alan at North Star Stone was very paitent with us and developed a customized combination of stone textures and colors that blended perfectly with our siding. Our house used to be the talk of the neighborhood due to its mismatched appearance, and now is the talk of the neighborhood because of how gorgeous it looks. One neighbor sent us a message stating that the house was “magazine worthy”! In addition, we were hosting a party about a month after we first met with Alan, and he was able to have all of the work completed very quickly and in advance of our event. We are very grateful to Alan and his crew for helping us enhance our dream home.”
