Boral expands Versetta Stone siding collection
Northern Ash meets the demand for dark colors and exterior accent options.
Boral Building Products announced that it has expanded its Versetta Stone family of stone siding panels with the addition of Northern Ash, the line’s darkest color yet.
Versetta Stone siding panels provide the look and texture of texture of authentic stone masonry without the added skill and time required for installation. A bold, dramatic look, Boral said that Northern Ash is ideal for meeting today’s demand for dark colors and accent options for the exterior.
Northern Ash blends near-black and dark gray stones with subtle taupe and light gray undertones, creating a visual texture and a varied aesthetic across the façade. The new color is available with Versetta Stone’s Ledgestone and Tight-Cut profiles; Ledgestone offers a traditional dry-stack look, while Tight-Cut features the look of cut-and-fitted stone.
“Increasingly, customers are requesting more options for darker accents, and Northern Ash answers that call. The stone siding offers a bold look ideal for half walls, columns, and nearly any other application, and works well in combination with both light and dark hues elsewhere on the façade,” says Ben Drury, Brand Manager for Boral Building Products. “And with Versetta Stone’s straightforward panelized installation, it’s easy for traditional carpenters and siding contractors to achieve this trendy look.”
Versetta Stone mortarless panels install easily with nails or screws with no scratch coat or metal lath needed, and they feature an integrated moisture management system; they do not require additional footings for support. The stone siding carries a Class A fire resistance rating, is wind resistant up to 110 mph, and passes freeze/thaw testing. Coordinating accessories are available, including starter strips, sills, and receptacle boxes.
