STONE VENEER 101

What is Stone Veneering?

Stone Veneering is a thin cut of real or manufactured stone product that is used for non load bearing applications. Often stone veneer is used on the exterior of concrete and steel buildings as a finish option. Stone Veneering can be traced as far back as the Roman Empire and gained popularity in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century.

     In the 1950's concrete was introduced into the veneering in order to make a manufactured stone that could resemble the look of natural stone and was more affordable and lighter than the early natural stone veneers that could be as thick as 6 feet at times.
