What is stone veneer made of?

There are three types of stone veneer. Understanding the differences will help you pick the right one for your design and maintenance requirements.

  • Manufactured stone veneer is lighter and easier to work with than natural stone.
  • Natural stone has a variety of colour variations which can give your walls a unique look.
  • Faux stone is lightweight and speeds up installation considerably. It is also weather-resistant and low maintenance.

Order a sample of each so that you have an idea of how the different varieties look and feel.

Check your local building codes to determine if you need a professional installer. It is also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the installation process so that you know what to expect. A certain amount of preparation will be required. What exactly needs to be done depends on the type and condition of the surface.
