Siding is a home's first line of defense from the great outdoors. It doesn't matter how hot or cold, how wet or dry, how windy or calm, our home's siding is always out there working for us. This crucial material is the first thing we notice on a home, so it's important for curb appeal. In Arizona, you'll see a number of different kinds of siding, and in fact, some homes combine multiple types on one building. If your siding needs repairing, or if you're looking to upgrade your curb appeal, trust the care of your home to Rosie on the House-certified siding partners.

Stone veneer adds style
Just as crown molding and chair rails can dress up a room inside your home, decorative brick or stone veneer can put a fancy finishing touch on the exterior of the house.
Adding architectural details like contrasting trim around windows and doors can add value and curb appeal to your home during a time when you might not be in the mood to spend a lot of money to completely change its look.
Veneer is thinner—half an inch to an inch thick compared with around four inches for standard brick—and lighter-weight than full brick or stone, so it can be easier for the do-it-yourselfer to work with.
Chances are, if your builder included stone or brick accents around the outside of your home, they’re made from veneer rather than full brick or stone—and nobody, including you, can tell the difference.
In fact, many all-brick homes built over the past 40 years have veneer walls, which are cheaper and less labor-intensive to construct than walls made from full brick.
