It is Eastern Red Cedar shingles from Shakertown, topped with Cabot Bleaching Oil. Here is a link to a dealer locater for Shakertown.

If you would be kind enough to let us know which stone material you are specifically referring to we'd will be better able to help you. There will be a bit of a delay, our office is closed today because of blizzard conditions,

Double hung windows - You have indicated the windows and doors are Marvin in stone white. However the double hung windows appear to be a different color, beige maybe. Can you confirm if they are all stone white or are their mixed colors? Maybe the screens are affecting the color? Thank you

I'm surprised that the walkways and steps are stamped concrete. The steps look like flagstone. I hope I can find a contractor in Asheville, NC that can duplicate the application.
