We just finished installing the Nailon Stone Wall panels on 2 framed chimneys. We have attached before and after photos of the project. The panels were straightforward to install and we are very pleased with the realistic result. One of my biggest concerns with using real stone was placing that much weight on our roof trusses. The low weight of your product allows this application without having to go through the expense and aggravation of involving engineers and architects. We are now considering using the same panels on the front exterior of the house, under the porch shown in the pictures. The panels are just thin enough to slide behind the trim flange on the windows, which would be difficult if not impossible with most other products.
Overall, we agree with many comments we read online. Your customer service is well beyond today's standards, there were no surprises with the product we received or the installation process, and the website has a tremendous level of detail that sets it apart from any other product we have used during a major addition/renovation. There simply weren't many questions left unanswered after reviewing your website.
Thank you for all your help! Here are my before and after pics.
Very satisfied with this product. Easy to install and looks great!
The project was small but made a big difference in the overall look, as you can see from the before and after pictures.
Here is the new Mailbox that we just completed yesterday. We used the Wellington Earth Dry Stack Wide Column to make the body of the mailbox. Then we used on of your Wide Column Caps for the top.
We are writing to thank you for the incredible service that we recently received. During our order process we spoke with 3 different staff in person and each was very helpful and genuinely interested in our project. The website is fantastic and we referred to it often. Ordering was very easy and the product was shipped promptly and surprised us by arriving 3 weeks earlier than expected! Installation of the panels was very easy and the faux rock looks great – we have had many compliments on it. We are thrilled as we have not been able to source river rock panels here in Canada.
Let us start by saying, we couldn’t be happier with your product and the look that was achieved; just as we imagined it. Enclosed are the before and after photos. I spoke with someone from customer service on August 18th, 2010 and she asked that we send them via email.
These Norwich faux panels are very easy to work with. I got my project done in a half a day, working by myself. Thank you, FauxPanels, for such a great design!
Attached are Before and After pictures of a very successful project. Thank you for the materials and informative website. The material was surprisingly easy to cut and install. We're very happy with the end result.
This is the outdoor kitchen I built in my Lanai. I had no plans except what was in my head and basically planned it step by step as I went along. I built the frame of PT lumbar and used exterior grade 3/4 inch plywood for the sides and under the porcelain countertop. Stainless steel T-Nuts were used on the bottom of the frame with four in the front and four in the back. This was it could be leveled and it would kept the wood from contacting the concrete pad.
I was very pleased with the appearance of the stacked stone faux panels. I had no room for error and one bad cut and I would not have enough panels. Needless to say, I had to think every cut out very carefully.
I mitered the corners with a circular saw with no straight edge,so extreme patience was required. The corners were then caulked with your caulk as were the holes left from the deck screws. I tried to put all deck screws in the beige as the caulk matched perfectly and no painting was required. I did have to paint the corners which took a little practice and blending of the three matching colors that I purchased from your company.
Everyone that has seen the final project has been very impressed and want me to build them one. Unfortunately they cannot affored my labor rates. ha ha. I too am very pleaseed but most importantly my wife is happy!
By the way note how the TV, seen in a couple of the pictures, is attached mounted on an umbrella stand. I used a galvanized chain link fence post to attach the TV to the stand and then concrete screws to attach rollers to the bottom of the stand. I can roll where ever I want while cooking or watching football from within the hot tub. Maybe you should build these and see them, if you do don't forget me. lol. I am also proud of the cover I made for the stove top. Seems sometimes the little things can give just as much self satisfaction despite their simplicity.
However, your panels made everything possible. Thanks for a great product.
The Regency Potomac Stacked Stone was very easy to order and install, (I am stay at home mom with no carpentry training). The people at fauxwood/fauxstone were very helpful during the ordering and after with any installation questions I had. The only problem I had was trying to choose the type of stone and color I wanted, because of the large selection. I wanted something that would look natural to our area in New York yet get rid of the horrible stucco and help our cookie cutter raised ranch stand out. They helped me figure out what would work well, and it sure does look great. My elderly neighbor across the street says people keep stopping in the middle of the road to look at our house. I had some left over so I put it on the face of my entry stairs. I love the overall results
I love the service you provide! Seriously, you have made the purchase extremely enjoyable and you have built up so much trust, that I am telling all my friends and neighbors about you and your company.
Tina is your gal! Thanks for everything and we did have a fabulous fourth!
Here are before and after photos of our country home transformation. You can see that we covered boring, gray cinder block with the faux panels Regency. It took us awhile to "get the hang of it" but once we did we worked hard and got most of the project done in a day and 1/2. With the leftover pieces we are going to cover more cinder block on the back porch area.
Thank you for your attentive assistance, it was important to our success.
