STAR Building Materials Introduces Award-Winning Siding Product To Inventory

WINNIPEG, Manitoba: STAR Building Materials, Canada’s largest independent lumber and building materials retailer, is pleased to introduce a new product to its siding inventory. Evolve Stone, a stone veneer product that can be installed with a finish nailer, offers an award-winning solution for quick, efficient, and attractive stone veneer installation.

Incorporated in 1958, STAR Building Materials is an established provider of high-quality building materials with a long history of offering customers the opportunity to “buy where builders buy.” With a large retail store, Winnipeg’s largest drive-through lumber yard, and over 15 acres of lumber and building materials for customers to choose from, it’s a company known for its broad inventory, experienced and knowledgeable team members, and impeccable customer service.

With an already extensive selection of roofing and siding materials available, the dedicated team at STAR continues to stay on top of the latest and most advanced building material solutions as they hit the market. One of the newest products it’s excited to share with customers is Evolve Stone, a stone veneer siding product that may be a game-changer for stone veneer installation.

Evolve Stone is a mortarless stone veneer product that can be installed up to 10 times faster than its competition. Lightweight and requiring no hardware, it can be installed with just a finish nailer. With infused colour throughout, Evolve Stone is highly realistic and moisture-impermeable. It has been awarded Best in Show and Most Innovative Building Material at the International Builders Show (IBS).

Mark Kennedy, vice president of STAR Building Materials in Winnipeg, expects Evolve Stone siding to be a high-demand product. “It’s very realistic, extremely durable, and can be cut to fit on-site. Not a lot of people are being trained as stone masons these days,” he said, “but a product like Evolve Stone makes beautiful stone siding an option for everyone to install.”
