How Natural Stone Increases Your Home’s Value

A home’s value is based on the size and condition of the home, the location, as well as the materials in the home. Modern homeowners are always looking to upgrade their homes—either to keep up with current trends or to add better materials that match their own tastes and preferences.

Natural stone, such as marble, granite, and quartz, are what many homeowners flock to in order to boost the future selling price of their home. Let’s look at how natural stone increases your home’s value today.

Natural stone is one of the most durable construction materials. When it comes to durability, usability, and appeal, both homebuyers and home sellers look for natural stone materials. They don’t easily crack or break, and they can withstand many conditions. In addition, these materials experience very little wear and tear and require only minimal maintenance.

Homeowners consider the following natural stones when upgrading their home finishes.

  • Marble
  • Granite
  • Quartz
  • Travertine
  • Limestone

Natural stone stands the test of time. Natural stone doesn’t fade in value or looks like ceramic or porcelain tile, vinyl, and other materials. Interior surfaces with natural stone finishes offer natural beauty, pattern and style options, and a big dollar boost when it comes to appraisal values. So, many homeowners are able to fully recoup their investment in natural stone surfaces in the resale of their home and property.  In fact, many real estate professionals state that adding stone countertops to a home can result in a 200% return on investment when the house is sold.

  • Window sills
  • Fireplace/chimney/hearth veneer

Natural stone is energy efficient. Natural stone‘s thermal inertia aids in sustaining uniform temperatures throughout your home’s interior. Plus, it promotes heating and cooling comfort and increases energy savings.

Home buyers want upgraded finishes, and they will pay for them. Years ago, homebuyers only expected natural stone surfaces (such as marble, granite, and quartz) in homes with higher price tags. However, today’s home buyers are much more sophisticated and educated, and they now expect these natural materials in more moderately priced homes… even in homes with a lower price point.

There are a wide variety of ways that you can utilize natural stone within your home. We encourage you to look through our website gallery and project photos for ideas and inspiration. Kitchens and bathrooms tend to be a must for upgraded finishes in today’s real estate market. And other applications are a bonus for both homeowners and home buyers.

With natural stone added to your home finishes, your home’s value will rise quickly—especially when compared to other homes in your price range. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy it for as long as you are in the home!
