Boral Adds Carved Block Profile to Versetta Stone® Line of Mortarless Stone Veneer
Larger-format, split-face stone profile brings a clean, contemporary look
ROSWELL, Georgia (April 24, 2018) – Boral® is expanding its Versetta Stone® lineup with Carved Block, a profile reminiscent of split-face stone. Versetta Stone mortarless stone veneer panels provide the beauty and texture of authentic stone masonry without the added skill and time required for installation. A larger stone format, Carved Block is ideal for modern home styles and light-commercial applications.
Carved Block stones range from 16 to 20 inches wide by 8 inches tall, oriented across a 36-inch-by-8-inch panel. The profile comes in two colors: Midnight is a dark gray hue with almond tones, providing a dark yet warm tone that brings the texture to life; Sea Salt is a creamy blend of beige and khaki for a soft, neutral look.
“Carved Block is a complete departure from our other profiles, offering a much more contemporary aesthetic,” says Aaron Sims, Product Manager for Light Building Products. “It fills a need for something different in masonry, for a look that is clean and modern against other popular trends such as large-format floor tiles and expansive quartz slabs.”
Versetta Stone panels install easily with nails or screws and feature an integrated moisture management system. They do not require additional footings for support. The stone veneer carries a Class A fire resistance rating and passes freeze/thaw testing.
