Manufactured Stone Photos

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 weighs less than 10 lbs per square foot so that no additional structural supports are required. Manufactured Stone Veneer is a decorative building material designed to replicate the look of natural stone. The names artificial stones, stacked stone veneer, manufactured stone, and Man Made Stone are also used for stone veneer.

Manufactured 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.

Some advantages of manufactured stone are:
  • Cost  (cost of material, cost of application, waste cost)
  • Weight (no angle irons or footings)
  • Variety of designs and colors
  • Easy to install


Manufactured Stone is not a new and unproven product; in fact Manufactured Stone products have been around for decades and have been used as a veneer in homes and shopping centers around the globe.

Centurion and Native Stone both have a 50 year manufactures warranty.
