There are several manufacturers of that type of product.

Just Google "stone veneer" and match it up yourself.

That is undoubtedly a "cultured stone veneer", meaning it's lightweight concrete that's man-made. The style would likely fall under "cobblestone". there are 100's of manufacturer's of this stuff now-a-days, with the biggest being Owens Corning "Cultured Stone"...........

Thank you all for your responses. Is cultured stone also part of stone veneer family ?

Ok. Great !

How do you choose which makes sense to your house ? or is it a personal choice ?
Does one has more life or value than others ?

Too many styles to choose from. This is a decision you have to make. The "stone" in the pictures looks really good to me. I have installed a lot of that product over the years and I should offer you my personal warning about one little detail.

One style of that type of stone is called "dry-stack". This means the stones are applied to the structure but do not get any mortar between the stones.
BAD IDEA in my opinion. The nature of the stone shapes used in the dry-stack method allows you to see the substrate and is a haven for insects. Freeze/thaw may also be an issue.

Basically any of the stones can be dry-stacked I suppose but I would pooh-poo the idea.

Yes, I would save the drystack for interior. Otherwise, treat it as the finish coat of a 3-coat stucco system, and it should all be good.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Does one has more real estate value than the other ? or the curb appeal ?
I am thinking this kind of stone appear big versus the stone veneer which some times make it busy !

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

I doubt that any one style would add more value than another.

Forgot to say that while it looks like Eldorado there's so many manufacturers it's impossible to say. You could ask one the homeowners in that neighborhood. Or you could find out who the builder was and ask.

Seriously doubt stone veneer would any real estate value at all. Or if it does it's very very small.
