What is “Thin Veneer Stone”?

Natural Thin Veneer Stone was created as a superior alternative product to man made, fake stone. It has been popular for Architects to involve fake or cultured stone in a project. Early applications of cultured stone were popular on commercial or residential jobs because of it’s light weight and easy installation. Today, time has shown the inherent weaknesses of those man made products.

Fake stone (cultured stone) is a painted or dyed cement product that clearly fades, cannot be cleaned with harsh chemicals available, and when chipped, looks old with the cement interior exposed. Those inherent weaknesses prompted the stone industry to move to mining building stone and cutting it as thin as the cultured stone. It has revolutionized the building stone industry to a point now that an architect can design in “all natural thin stone” in place of cultured stone. The finished project will have the look, beauty and timeless elegance that only natural stone can give. Each selection can be used for interior or exterior applications. All natural stone veneer can be applied to both masonry and wood surfaces without the need for a ledge or wall ties.

“Thin Veneer Stone” is cut with an approximate thickness of between 3/4 inch and 1-1/2 inch. You have available both flats and corners with each color selection. The weight of this natural mined product varies between 9.5 and 13 lbs. per square foot, depending on the stone selection you choose. Sold in 10 square foot increments or 100 square foot crate. Corners are sold by linear foot in 1 linear foot increments or by 50 linear foot crate.

Application

Each selection can be used for interior or exterior applications. All natural “Thin Veneer Stone” can be applied to both masonry and wood surfaces without the need for a ledge or wall ties. Each stone application applies just like the older fake stone products. The installation is simple, lightweight and faster than using full thickness stone. The ability to involve stone, brick or tile masons makes the labor pool more accessible. All that is necessary to determine the amount of stone required is to measure the square footage of area to be covered and the linear footage of corner surface.

Stone is a product of nature. Therefore color and size may vary from pallet to pallet. Indicated sizes/coverage’s are average. Also note, differences in screens can cause colors to appear different than reality.
