Building a home or completing a renovation is a huge commitment. Before any project can even be started it has to be visualized in someones mind. When it’s completed, everyone gets to see the final results of that vision. Kodiak Mountain Stone supplies many of the products that people see when you are done your project. That is why those finishing touches are so important on a project. Whether it’s our manufactured stone, natural stone, brick or acrylic stucco, we will help you Finish the Dream!
Kodiak Mountain Stone is excited to introduce the new Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer to help create that dream!
Upload your own picture and experiment by adding our manufactured stone to different areas of your home to see what it would look like. Don’t like how it looks? Try another area or a different profile or color.
Currently you can use four of our Kodiak Mountain Stone manufactured stone profiles in select colors to visualize your future home. If the available profiles or colors are not exactly what you want on your home, you will still be able to have a good idea of where you want the stone and what it will look like. We have also made available a number of other products that you can experiment with to help you visualize your final project. Some of the other products available are stucco, siding, doors and windows. As you use the Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer you will see what an amazing tool it is. Lets see how it works.
As you go through the process when you are using the Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer, follow the Guided Tutorial within the program. Following are the steps that the Guided Tutorial will take you through.
Start by uploading your own photo.
Once you have uploaded the photo of your house you need to Set the Project to Scale.
Tell us how large the subject of the picture is in real life.
Click on a corner of a wall or door on the project to start drawing a measuring line. Draw the measuring line to another corner of the same wall or door and click to end the line.
Next you will input the true length of this line to set the project to scale.
My New Exterior!
Draw surfaces and features on the picture using the masking tools. Apply our manufactured stone to these areas in the “visualize” task.
The Guided Tutorial in the Visualizer will walk you through the process

At this point you will be able to see the manufactured stone that you can apply to your wall. You can keep making selections from this list until you find the profile and color you desire.
Each time you make a selection (Cut Fieldstone for example), a list of available colors will appear. Once you select a color by clicking on it, the selection will be applied to the area you’ve selected in the picture.
When the stone has been applied, you may click the area on the picture a second time to see the product details or to remove the product.
At this step the options of products to be applied are a selection of Kodiak Mountain Stone manufactured stone as well as some other siding products such as stucco and siding products.
Currently the Kodiak Mountain Stone profiles and colors available in the Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer are:
- Cut Fieldstone
- Colors: Granite, Quarry and Almond Buff
- Frontier Ledge
- Colors: Almond Buff, Colorado Rundle, Glacier, Walnut and Wheat
- Ready Stack
- Colors: Almond Buff, Chardonnay, Colorado Rundle, Glacier, Walnut and Mahogany
- Southern Hackett
- Colors: Almond Buff, Apache and Granite
*Although the digitized versions of these manufactured stone profiles and colors are as accurate as possible, visit our showrooms to view the actual profiles and colors before making your final selection.
Our Showrooms are located at:
At this point you may select other products and/or colors to see your different options.
In these pictures you can see that a new area has been defined and stucco (another stone profile in the last photo) has been applied to compare with the existing siding. This is your opportunity to experiment and dream.
