Parksite Partners with Silvermine Stone

General News
Parksite Logo - Lumber Stocking Wholesaler & Distributor

Effective immediately Parksite, Inc. will offer Silvermine Stone, the first brand of mortarless stone veneer, in its New York and New Jersey geographical territories. Silvermine Stone features a patented flashing and fastening system, creating a shingling system on the wall to keep water away from the home’s substrate while only requiring a single layer of weather resistant barrier. As Silvermine Stone states, the shingling effect sheds all water to the front, thus eliminating water penetration and minimizing the possibility of insects getting between the stone and the wall. Silvermine Stone’s product offering includes the Belterra Collection featuring a ledgestone aesthetic that is available in five popular colors with 6” x 24? veneer sections simply attach to the wall with pan-headed screws and do not require lath, a scratch-coat, or mortar.

“This product offering is directly aligned with our growth plans.  We pride ourselves on being the premier partner to leading manufacturers in the building industry, and we are extremely proud to have been selected to represent the Silvermine Stone brand”, stated Bob Higgins, Senior Vice President of Sales for Parksite. “Enhancing our partnership with Silvermine enables us to build on our portfolio of leading brands and offer our customers the highest quality and most innovative products in the industry.”  Mike Borom, CEO of Silvermine Stone said “We are excited to worth with Parksite, they have a strong reputation creating value for their customers by partnering with category changing product lines.”

Parksite firmly believes their competitive advantage is directly attributable to their employees. According to CEO, Ron Heitzman, “Every one of our associates is dedicated to contributing to the success of both our customers and our suppliers. The dedication and excitement that is generated when everyone is an owner is extraordinary.”

About Silvermine Stone

Silvermine Stone created the mortarless stone veneer category of siding products when it was invented by a mason who was seeking to simplify the installation of manufactured stone veneer products. Manufactured in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Silvermine’s products feature a patented flashing and hanging system that allows for a simple installation while solving the moisture related challenges that plague other stone veneer installations.
