“The solutions from Sto enabled us to keep the exterior envelope intact so we avoided energy and water intrusion concerns. We were able to dress up the exterior without being invasive or labor intensive. The grid system allowed the freedom to choose sizes and colors to create our vision with a unique pattern.”
