Very easy to deal with.
The panels and corners are very easy to cut and finish. Installation is a piece of cake. To hide the screws on the front panels is very easy to do it. You don't have to be a pro on construction. Price is very affordable compare to real stones. I'm already planning some other projects with Genstone.

Wow! Northern Slate was a great choice to complement the steel appliances. You must have made quite a few cuts, you did an incredible job with the finishing overall, wrapping the stone around each void is done perfectly. Thank you for sharing and for writing a review, looking forward to working with you on your next GenStone project.

    We Love our GenStone Fireplace Surround!
    We wanted to let you know how happy we are with the GenStone fireplace project. My wife and I are over 70 years old. Relatives and friends who’ve seen it are astounded at its authentic appearance and the fact we did the project ourselves in less than a day. After researching the dizzying choices of stone fireplace surround solutions we chose your GenStone Vanilla Bean product for many reasons: Installs Directly Over Drywall No Need for Mortar Affordability No 3rd Party Installers Suitability for, and ease of, DIY installation Attractiveness Authentic Appearance Durability Your representative followed up on my initial inquiry from your website and was exceptionally friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. He answered every one of my questions and assured me the product was ideal for DIY installations like ours. After ordering samples we chose the Vanilla Bean color. He specified the exact amount of product needed and described how to cut the special tabs on the shorter pieces. He also explained how to stagger the edge pieces for a more professional look. Our shipment arrived in perfect condition, well-packaged to prevent damage. After practicing a few cuts with various saws on the sample product, I decided to use my Japanese pull saw for all installation cuts. Its thin blade and fine teeth cut straight and true, leaving no unsightly rough edges. I used my Dremel to rout out the end pieces to fit perfectly around our mantel. The project took about 8 hours to complete and was fun to do. What a dramatic improvement GenStone made to our living room!

      We stuccoed our home a year ago and had some pop-outs added so we could add some stone. It took us a year to finally decide what product to use. We used the GenStone Northern Slate for our home and absolutely love it! We have had numerous neighbors stop and tell us that it looked beautiful. We couldn’t be happier!

        Love it! Couldn't be happier!
        We used the Coffee Stacked Stone to cover the old ugly concrete foundation around our house and we couldn't be happier! It was easy to install and super easy to handle. The measuring tool on the website was perfect (except I forgot to add the corner pieces but a quick call to customer service remedied that situation and we had them a few days later and were able to complete the project quickly!) I highly recommend this product and this company - everything was first rate and top quality.

          Homeowner Installation
          This product is very user friendly, light weight, and looks like real slate/shale/sandstone. I prepared the wall, by removing the original siding, placing tyvek paper and taping the seams for about one hour. The next day, I installed the Genstone product (about 4 hours) to the porch walls with just 1 5/8" decking star screws and placing the sealant in the requested areas. See for yourself in the photos. Any homeowner can install this!

            So Easy - Instant Upgrade!
            I wanted to spruce up the kid’s playhouse and so I only needed a couple of sheets of the stone. It made it look instantly better. I just used a backsaw to cut the pieces- no special tools needed. I’ll attach a before and after so you can see.

            Hi Amanda, thanks so much for sharing your playhouse project with us! This was the first time we've seen GenStone used in this way and now that you've shared these pictures, I'm sure it won't be the last time. Everyone on our team loves the playhouse, thanks again.

              Great Transformation
              I installed the grey/black stack stone over the original wooden bar base so with the granite upgrade, led tape light and the Genstone stack stone by bar now looks fantastic. Installation was a breeze and what a difference!! We will now be moving to the fireplace accent wall to match. Thank you Amanda and Genstone for all your help from start to finish with my custom bar!!

              Hey Chip, what an amazing transformation, Iron Ore was the perfect choice! I was eyeing that fireplace in the background hoping you would use GenStone again, it's great to hear you're considering us for that project as well! Thanks for taking the time to share your review, we'll be looking forward to working with you again soon.

                Terrific fireplace
                Bought this for my TV / Fireplace wall and could not be happier. Looks realistic and was super easy to work with, found small grey panel screws that hide in the shadows perfectly. I had a lot of detail cutting to do which was time consuming to measure out but the genstone cuts super easy with a basic hand saw or a table saw. Took me about 18 hours to install.
