Have the Home You’ve Always Dreamed About – Without Changing Your Address.

Building with stone. There’s nothing like it. The warm, earthy beauty, the sense of security and stability – there are a wealth of good reasons why stone houses have remained popular with the well to do for centuries. They’re simply wonderful to live in.

Now you can access the world’s most realistic, cutting-edge stone effects, transforming your home into a stone cottage or mansion that looks and feels beautiful. Our realistic materials are easier to craft and build, so creating stone-look walls inside and out is more affordable than ever.

But you won’t see any moulded renders or templates here. Our artisans create every piece on-site and tailor it to make your home as individual and authentic as you are.

Make Any Cold, Bare, Tired-Looking Wall
into a Stunning Work of Art.

Imagine living in a stone home you’ve designed yourself. Or creating a feature wall that looks and feels like it’s stood there for decades (maybe centuries!). We can also fashion stunning entry statements and porticos. Really, you’re only limited by your imagination.

Industry experts agree, we carry the most realistic engineered render product on the market. Breathe life into your new or existing home with our range of limestone, bluestone, sandstone, rammed earth, concrete or Marmarino effects. The applications are almost limitless, from natural stone cladding and cutpointing for out-dated or fretting brick to stone restoration work.

The results you can achieve will astound you. Variable thicknesses – from as little as 5mm to 50mm – a light weight and micro-flexible nature mean Stone Effects can minimise construction times compared to existing retrofitted products.

Plus, Stone Effects uses natural, recycled or by-products that have a positive outcome for our environment wherever possible, because we believe having a great looking home shouldn’t cost the earth.

Here’s a snapshot of what you can achieve.
