Natural thin stone veneer is cut directly from real stone quarried throughout the United States. It comes in various colors, shapes, styles and textures. Real stone is entirely natural; every stone project will be unique and distinctive. To create the thin stone veneer, full thickness building stones are cut with a diamond saw into pieces of veneer approximately one inch thick. This thin stone veneer is easier to work with because it is lighter and does not require a brick ledge for installation. Using thin veneer stone reduces installation time and costs while retaining the same beautiful finished appearance.
