Decorative stone cladding from Stutex Stone is a fast and cost-effective way to add a look of permanence to your home

Quick change


Renovating your home can increase its value substantially, but there are traps for the unwary. The key is to spend money wisely, on projects that will improve the look and functionality of your biggest asset.

Introducing decorative stone cladding is an easy way to transform the look of your home, and impart a sense of solidity and permanence.

Stutex Stone supplies a variety of medium-weight decorative stone cladding that can be used on both interior and exterior walls, as well as chimneys, fireplaces and landscaping features. Stutex Stone director Lorraine Goudie says the claddings provide a way to achieve a natural stone appearance without the usual associated cost.

"The cladding is just one third the weight of natural stone, so it can be installed over standard foundations without the need for additional structural bracing. Its light weight also means installation is fast and efficient, providing further cost savings."

Lorraine Goudie says the manufactured stone profiles have been designed to replicate New Zealand's regional stone, and feature intricate surface textures that are hard to distinguish from natural stone.


A nationwide network of distributors can offer site measures and quotations for supply and/or installation. They can also assist with technical information.
