Designing the exterior of your dream home can be daunting and difficult task. It’s especially difficult to visualize everything once you think you have found what you are wanting. At our Hearth & Home Stone Divisions and Design Centers we make it our mission to ease your worries on this front as much as possible. 
Our skilled designers and sales staff are equipped with our drop box database that contains thousands upon thousands of photos of homes with our products. We strive to have photos of each and every single one of our stone and brick products in different applications, laid differently, in differently lighting’s, and paired with different exterior colors. This gives our customers the best idea possible of what their choices may look like on their home. 

In our showrooms, although the only products we sell are stone, brick, mortar, and stone accessory and application materials, we are outfitted with any and every exterior product you would need to match to your stone and brick products. Whether it be stucco, hardie, siding, shakes, roof shingles, soffit, fascia, gutter, drip edge, garage doors, windows, wood stains, paints, and so much more. This can be extremely helpful when trying to visualize your colors together, because instead of running to each and every product distributor and trying your best to guess what the colors will look like together, you can see them side by side in our well lit showrooms. 

Other tools to consider when trying to visualize are websites that have free mock up programs. Typically you wont be able to see everything you chose all together on these but they will usually have a few different home styles and a bunch of different products that you can put on the digital house to give you a better idea. 

Websites with these types of programs include:

Harristone (a manufactured stone company that we carry)
Certainteed (a popular roof shingle company) 
And James Hardie (the brand name cement board product manufacturer for pre-colored options — siding, board and batten, shakes, banding, etc.)
