When it comes to manufactured stone veneer, ProVia starts with the very basics: finding stones and rocks in nature that offer a profile and color palette that we believe enhances and beautifies interior and exterior home spaces.
Each manufactured stone starts with the expertise of professionals in the field. Organic stones are selected from unique geographic locations by trained stone masons and used to create realistic, handcrafted master molds. Our masons’ careful attention to the contours and varying hues of natural stone ensures our manufactured stone veneer profiles are unique and native-looking.
This authentic quarried stone molding, not computer modeling or CAD imaging, results in a near-perfect replica with all the depth, character, texture and nuance of natural stone. Edges, corners, reliefs and faces are expertly chiseled by hand, ensuring that even the smallest detail is accurate. Because we base them on real stones, our products offer the natural shadow lines and depth that are impossible to produce with purely invented designs.
High-quality aggregates, Portland cement, natural oxides and pigments are blended to create a concrete-like mixture that matches the look, feel and strength of original stone, for an authenticity that is unmatched in our industry.
Seeing a ProVia stone from the inside gives you a better picture of the strength of our product. This is not a panelized product; each stone is solid and individual, for enduring quality and character. ProVia stone is certified by the NCMA, as well – our products achieved a new benchmark in the industry for physical properties, shear bond strength, freeze-thaw durability, and linear drying shrinkage.
Attention to detail doesn’t stop at the end of the production line. For the journey from facility to jobsite, our stones are cradled in wax-coated, weather-resistant corrugated cardboard boxes and slip-sheeted between layers to prevent damage. This meticulous packaging protects the stone from breakage during shipping, and it weathers much longer at the jobsite.
ProVia’s mission is “to serve, by caring for details in ways others won’t,” and our stone selection, artistry, manufacturing and shipping processes are an example of the effort and mindfulness we put forth in our products. We take these extra steps because it’s the right thing to do for our customers.
