Default Stack n Tack stone veneer siding

Pretty slick. Not sure about cost comparisons, but this stuff looks like it would solve a lot of the installation issues. YouTube

I think one could look at this as 3-dimensional shingle siding. From that angle, instead of a masonry product, I kind of dig them!

The concept looks sound. Should be as waterproof as fiber-cement.

HOWEVER, it will never gain acceptance in the marketplace. You're wrapping the entire house in metal AND stone. it has to be more than double the cost of conventional pre-cast stone.

Yes! But it appears to be less labor intensive.

Will it attract lightening??? Two houses side by side. One has this on it. Which one gets hit?

Yeah, but if the lick and stick stuff all has to get ripped off or installed how it should be, the costs should even out

The vertical cracks are over lapped in the video but the cracks horizontally between the sections did not appear to be sealed and one layer of tyvec does not keep moisture out. I would not install it on my house

The panels overlap horizontally just like fiber-cement, hardboard and wood lap siding. Would you put fiber-cement on your home?

I think you need to view the video again, I see one stack setting right on top of the next one with no mortar. What's to keep the horizontal rain from traveling in and then penetrating the vertical cracks between the metal. Am I missing something here. It just don't smell right to me.

Looks pretty sound to me. With good supervision it could be installed with cheap low skill labor.
