When you’re ready to add a unique look to your home with wall stones, wall panels, and ledge stones, we have the right stone veneer for your needs. Outdoor living spaces are becoming more and more popular and the right wall stones can really help you create the best outdoor area for your home. …
Stone veneer may also be known as stone cladding or stone siding. It’s a thin layer of cut stone that can be attached to a structure to provide protection and decoration. The thin layer is cut from natural stone, so you will gain the natural appearance you want without the entire weight of full stone or the cost.
Stone veneer isn’t meant to be weight-bearing and it’s created mainly for decorative purposes. However, it can also provide protection against wear and weather.
Our Stone Veneer Products
At 9 Brothers Building Supply, we provide two types of stone veneer for your outdoor projects. Our team will be happy to help you choose the right option for your needs.
Manufactured Stone Veneer
Also known as faux stone, manufactured stone veneer is man-made. It’s created to look like real stone and made of a combination of natural minerals, cement, and pigment. A manufactured stone veneer can provide a beautiful look and it’s rather durable. It can often be hard to tell the difference between a manufactured stone veneer and a real stone.
In some cases, products labeled as faux stone will be made of a synthetic polymer, which creates a super-light veneer. Make sure you choose the right stone veneer for your needs as not all manufactured stone veneer is created the same way.
Real Stone Veneer
We also offer real stone veneer, which is a natural thin stone veneer from real stone. It comes from riverbeds, mountains, and stone quarries. Typically, a real stone veneer is cut in one-inch depths and may have a shape to look like a polished stone instead of a raw stone. If you’re looking to add elegance or rustic charm to your home, a real stone veneer is a great option.
