Great look even closeup!
While I was not quite prepared for the amount of modification around the corners, I was pleased in how easy it was to carve the material with a utility knife, fill with mortar patch and paint. The inside edges of the firebox were able to be shaped and painted to look like the rest. Will use again for sure, planning exterior use on garage next.
I have attached two pictures of small scenery projects my Brother-in-law has done so far with the scrap Panels and Beams we have given to him.
The first one is a Wall that he built with the “reject” (not routed) Carlton Panels and a section of a Hand Hewn Beam for the Children’s Play Alice in Wonderland. It is a Brick Wall for Humpty Dumpty to sit on. In the Interim of storing it, instead of placing it in the Attic, we felt it also worked just fine next to the Waterfall on the Pool (since it is so light and easy to just place there, and then just remove when it is needed for the Play).
The second Picture is a Fireplace that he built for the Play “Scenes From an Italian Restaurant”, which was done by building a Frame and then covering it with the leftover Regency Panels. He then used a section of the Tuscany Beam and just mitered it to actually go around the 3 sides of the Fireplace.
There will be many more projects to come, and many more pictures to come also. One or two of them will actually be for an upcoming Play in July. It is the Long Island Premier of “The Sting” (which I will actually be playing a role in).
TONS OF COMPLIMENTS!!!
This mailbox was the best purchase we've made in years. We started to have a stone mailbox made but saw this one and decided to try it. I've never received soooo many compliments. Even the mailman gave me a compliment! LOVE IT!
This fireplace was painted white brick. The faux panels changes the whole look! Due to the uneven surface, application was tricky and its not "perfect" if you know what to look for. Unfortunately, I can't find a full face example for the before in the kitchen, but it does show the uneven surface of sump brick we had to go over. We added a juniper mantal to match our kitchens juniper table.
There had to be extra cuts due to venting for heatilator. Overall, it turned out great. It has a fault line, but it was only visible at the angle we took the picture and if you were looking for it. I do need to go around with the touch up paint you sent with kit. We will be using your product for the outside wall and some decorative outside accents as well.
Thanks very much for a great alternative product that mimics stone without the heavy weight or labor intensive and transport needs!
Here are some before and after pictures of the bar we built in our basement.
We decided to use faux panels after visting the website and reading all the wonderful testimonials and seeing all the beautiful pictures. We decided on the Wellington Dry Stack Earth color panels and we couldn't be happier with our decision! They have added a touch of the outdoors and a touch of originality to an otherwise fairly ordinary project. Everyone that visits our home comments on how amazing our bar looks and are shocked and amazed when we tell them about faux panels.
We will definitely be using faux panels again in the future.
Thank you for making such a wonderful product!
We are submitting these before and after pictures of a retaining wall in our pool area. We installed gray Nailon panels on the wall and could not be happier with the results. Before application, the retaining wall was unsightly and the paint would repeatedly peel. Now the wall is a centerpiece of beauty and sets off the area complimenting the deck.
The siding was applied as part of our weekend projects and was easy to install. We've had many compliments about how much this has added and improved the area that previously we were at a loss as how to renovate.
My wife and I are so extremely pleased with your product and after installation we are even happier than we expected. Your product, the Norwich Colorado Stacked Stone, totally changed our living room from blah to WOW! This was a brand new house and just a blank long painted white wall to start with, then we got the electric fireplace and the TV where we wanted it to be and it still was just not right. That’s when my wife went to work and found your product on the Internet and the rest is history. Once we had the living room done we decided it looked so good that we needed to blend the open floorplan together with the kitchen, so we decided to do the underside of the kitchen island as well, unbelievable how great this all turned out.
Great product, outstanding and excellent support, just not enough ways to say that this is truly the best way to enhance any home. I can almost assure you that there will be another project or two in the future that will include your product once again. We cannot thank you enough for helping us make our new house, a warm and relaxing new home!
I recently ordered the Norwich Colorado Stone Earth panels to finish the bar. I wanted a matching look between the columns and the bar. It took a while to get there, but I have finished the bar project. I also used remnants of the panels from the bar to put on the side of a matching cabinet I built behind the bar. This was the final project to finish the room in the basement. After two projects, I am getting to be a pro at installing these.
I am getting many very positive comments and inquiries of where I purchased the stone.
The front of my mobile home gets the most sun, and quickly fades the paint, particularly the brown. So my contractor suggested that we put faux panels on the front brown section, and with the warranty you offer, I would not have to worry about the fading and repainting for a very long time. I used the Nailon used brick.
Pictures are attached, and I think you will agree, it looks fabulous. I am so very happy with the results and have received many complements. I hope that you think it to be a good representative of your Faux Panels to use on your web site.
A VERY happy customer.
