Choosing A Stone Color for Your Home


When selecting your home color scheme, there are some “design rules” to take into consideration. When picking your base colors, you want to choose from the same palette, whether they be neutrals or pastels. Typically, picking from the same paint swatch, just a few shades different is a fool-proof way to establish a good foundation. If your stone piece is going to be large, perhaps picking a lighter wash or more neutral color will make it fit into your home better. If your stone will be more of an accent, you can step out of the box with a color that has a little more pop to draw they eye! Take a look at our different stones to see which one meets your home’s needs!

Pros of Pressure Washing Your Stone Exterior


Proper care of your outdoor stone is a necessity for every home owner; especially considering how large of a financial investment installing high-quality stone is. Treating your stone is not a task you need to worry about more than about once a year, depending on your climate. In order to provide a deep and effective cleaning, you should consider pressure washing the exterior of your home to blast away those layers of grime. Hand scrubbing your home is an enormous task that, to be honest, is a huge waste of time. Brush bristles are just not strong enough or always angled correctly for optimal dirt removal and climbing up and down a ladder for the entire weekend is completely time-consuming. Renting a power washer for your home is the quickest (and most effective!) way to cleanse your home of the residue of harsh weather conditions. Pressure washers are usually available for daily rental at local and corporate hardware stores!
