Masonry Panels: Nu-Wood has a Knack for Improving Home Exteriors!

Photo Source
My sister-in-law purchased a house that was reasonably priced. It is in a wonderful neighborhood, and the house itself has awesome 'bones.' It's really cute on the outside too, but could def. use some TLC and an update to make it stand out (in a good way). She has considered shutters, but ultimately decided she would like something with a little more 'pop.' 

Nu-WoodTM, a leading industry synthetic millwork manufacturer, now offers faux polyurethane brick and stone masonry panel options in eight different styles and 15 different hand glazed and finished colors, and they are just the thing my SIL could use to make the exterior improvements she is longing for with her new'ish' place. A variety of profile molds are used for each of these panel designs to eliminate repeat patterns, making the installation of multiple panels more realistic, and thus more appealing!

The lightweight panels have interlocking joints for side-to-side installation ease along with overlapping top and bottom ledges. The durable faux masonry panels can be used for both interior and exterior applications on homes and commercial projects.

Stone and brick styles available for the panels include: Castle Rock, Cobblestone, Fieldstone, Ledgestone, Stacked Stone, Weathered Brick, Classic Brick and Original Brick. The 15 hand-painted colors available include: Beige Blend, Dakota Blend, Dove Gray, Durango, Limestone, Marble Gray, Shadow Gray, Sierra Sand, Sonora, Summer Tan, Mojave Brown, Smoke Slate, Rich Brown Dusted, Bordeaux and Bold Rouge Dusted. I am a sucker for cobblestone or castle rock, but think my SIL would more approve of the classic brick for her place. I have to admit it would go great with the new wishing well and fancy gazebo she has decided to put up as well.

All of this may sound well and good, but what about the cost of installation? Well, that's the thing... you can do this yourself!! "...these Made in America panels are lightweight and easy to install for both the professional and do-it-yourselfer. The interlocking panels can be stacked both vertically and horizontally to accommodate any new construction or remodeling project." That means she can do it herself (or more likely,  she can get her brother who is awesome at this kind of thing, to come and  help her install).

Durable and maintenance-free, Nu-Wood faux panels enhance the look and value of any project from accent walls to exterior skirting. Designed for both residential and commercial applications, the panels are impact-resistant and molded from a resilient closed-cell structural polyurethane. The panels are fade-resistant and will never rot, crack or attract insects. That last sentence is extremely important in any state, but most especially if you live in one that is warm year round, such as my sister-in-law does. 

To complement the new faux masonry panels, ledges are available in brick and limestone. Corners are also available in brick, limestone and stacked stone. This means you can pretty much custom design the look to fit what appeals to you most. Finding ways to decorate that are durable, appealing, affordable and easy to do yourself makes everyone happy!

I think these panels are lovely, and if you are looking to increase your curb appeal, these are definitely worth looking into!! 

Nu-Wood, a Jasper Plastics company, has created easy-to-install decorative millwork for more than 30 years. The company produces polyurethane, PVC, faux stone and brick products that are all proudly sourced, designed and manufactured in America. Lightweight Nu-Wood products resist peeling, rot, moisture and insects, making them an ideal decorative accent product for the exterior and interior of residential and commercial projects.

  1. That would be neat for a fence. Buy a cheap sucker and put it up and then tack some of those brick ones on there to make it look good. Probably waaay cheaper than real brick too.

    1. Pat, Tim from Nu-Wood here. We manufacture also Faux columns specifically for that. set them over a 4x4 post, add rails or fence sections and you have a very elegant fencing system in a matter of hours, and even an all thumbs marketing guy like me can do it!

    1. Alex - Tim from Nu-Wood here...if you can run a tape measure and a table saw (or skil saw) you can make these work. AND unlike most of the other products that are out there - these look REAL.

  19. These are fantastic ideas for those who are in a budget, well to save some money on hiring someone else to do it. As we all know services are more expensive that expected why not invest into something that will make you more active and just perhaps get a course about (housing repairs, basic constructions etc) this would cut the cost. thanks for this brilliant ideas you shared.
