TandoStone® adds alegance to New England open porch accent wall

The highly trained staff of installers at Hi-Tech Window & Siding of Methuen, MA adds curb appeal with TandoStone for porch accents and foundation cladding.

QUEBEC CITY, Canada, June 7, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Hi-Tech Windows & Siding, a Methuen, Massachusetts-based firm, has recently selected TandoStone® to upgrade a porch entryway on a home in New Hampshire to add rich curb appeal. Hi-Tech has served Northeastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire for 27 years. The second-generation, family-owned business specializes in a wide range of home services from siding and cladding to durable roofing. Owner Bill Chase credits two key ingredients for the company’s winning formula for success: a highly trained staff of installers and the highest quality products.

Hi-Tech relies on TandoStone, the number one brand of composite stone, to provide the authentic look and feel of stone. TandoStone complements a wide range of siding materials and is available in two profiles—Stacked Stone, a dry stack profile without grout lines, and Creek Ledgestone, the look of hand-picked stones with visible grout lines.

“We recommend TandoStone to homeowners who want their homes to stand out,” Chase explained. “If they have a drab or plain looking foundation or open porch, the composite stone cladding is the best way to upgrade it–these are our biggest applications for TandoStone. And, our state-of-the-art showroom with an indoor house façade helps them visualize how various siding materials pair with the composite stone.”

He said many homes in New England have traditional front porches, which are often a focal point for renovations. For the recent New Hampshire restoration, his crew transformed an asymmetrical open porch using TandoStone to create a beautiful accent wall.

“The porch is a great accent area for TandoStone. The crew installed the composite stone panels easily with regular tools – as opposed to bringing in a mason and coordinating both trades, which can really cause delays,” said Chase. “It also offers a much more unified approach for siding installers because they can easily tie into flashing. It makes the entire job flow more smoothly.”

The homeowners chose TandoStone Stacked Stone in Glacier Bay, a palette of gray shades to complement the new gray siding and white trim. It provided the perfect backdrop to cover the original brick wall and showcase a new, bright red front door for a traditional New England look with a modern flair.

Chase has seen an industry shift towards high-quality composite materials as homeowners realize the value of authentic looking materials with low upkeep. “No matter the siding, it’s easy to match colors and pull everything together beautifully with TandoStone,” he said. “It is now our go-to composite stone–we are huge fans.”
