A Glittering Review

Product: Regency Random Rock panels in Earth Customer Rating: 5 Stars Submitted by Rowan from BC, Canada - June 5, 2013

Exterior wainscotting I had a lot of plain looking siding in the front, I thought the house needed some street appeal. Random rock earth looked like the perfect compliment to the existing style and colour. Install was easy and fun, the lightweight panels are easy to cut and position. The results have been amazing and customer support was excellent. Great product.


Product On Fire

The Wellington Dry Stack panel was the product to watch in 2013. Living rooms, fireplaces, home exteriors and more were reinvigorated with its natural looking finishes - kudos to our customers for their ingenuity and successes!


Dramatic Difference (Dec 6, 2013) We are very pleased with our selection. The product was delivered on time and was easy to install. We are amazed at the dramatic difference it has made to the exterior of our home. We get compliments all the time. We love it! - L Bliss from Buffalo, MN

From Unsightly to Pleasing (Nov 26, 2013) I was looking for an exterior motif to dress up an old block building. Being new owners of an old business, this was just the right dressing we needed to express a new era, new owernership, and renewed customer consideration. Rave reviews from a recent open house confirmed our choices and business is excellent. - Barb from Caledonia, MI

Exterior brick fascia makeover (Aug 16, 2013) I am a proficient DIYer & professional were no surprises....i had planned the project carefully from start to finish....panels were easy to work with,the wellington panel is the most attractive of all the dry stack panels because of the warm earth tones ...the realism of the panel compared to real stone is amazing and literally un-detectable....the response I have had to my makeover from onlookers and neighbors during and after the completion of the project has been what i have come to call the "OMG factor". Sincerely, a very satisfied customer. - Greg from San Jose, CA.
