faux panels


I searched to see if there was any info on faux panels. the site looks nice. i ordered a sample and it is nice looking. and i think it can work out to look pretty decent and fool people to making it look real. what are your opinions on this? i was thinking of using it on my foundation outside my house. about 2 feet high all around my house and doing the steps as well. installation seems like a breeze on this.

Are these faux panels of a stone look product?
What are they made out of?

faux panels


they are made out of polyurethane. gaurenteed not to fade, waterproof, crack, peel, maintenance free. Theres a video on their site that shows a ford work van like a e150 running a panel over and it seems to be no damage, not like a van will be riding on my foundation lol. but it was featured on couple tv shows as diy shows, also the apprentice. i mean looks good. the sample i got looks really good. i held it up to my backsplash in my kitchen and i was surprised how nice it can look. installation seems like a breeze, i can probably bang my foundation out in a matter of a weekend by myself couple hours each day. just google it.

What are they made of?
A very durable, high-density polymer.

Of course you do, you have a financial interest in the company..............

I just priced it out. Real stone would be a lot less.
