Manufactured Stone & Stone Veneer

Beautiful & Functional Manufactured Stone for Your Next Project

Manufactured stone, also called stone veneer, is used as a protective and decorative covering for exterior or interior vertical walls and surfaces. The Veneers are typically 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick and weigh less than 10 lbs per square foot so that no additional structural supports are required. Stone veneer is made to replicate natural stone and can be called many different names, including: artificial stone, manmade stone and rock in a box.

Stone veneer is fabricated by pouring a lightweight concrete mix into forms of different styles patterned from selected pieces of natural stone and colored with natural earth pigments. The stone veneer produced is then attached with Type "S" mortar to the sub-straight desired.
