What is Stone Veneer?
A type of siding panel that can be manufactured or made of natural stone is known as stone veneer. It’s a thin piece of decorative stone material. You can use it as a siding type of material or for other applications, such as a fireplace wall or a stone wall.
This thin material may also be called stone siding or stone cladding. It’s used for decoration and to offer some protection. When you want to create a stone feature without the full weight of the rock, stone veneer offers the right option.
Manufactured Stone Veneer vs. Natural Stone Veneer
Stone veneer comes in two types, manufactured stone veneer, and natural stone veneer. Both are thin panels to provide the look and aesthetic of stone for your application. However, they are not quite the same.
Manufactured Stone Veneer
Also called faux stone, manufactured stone veneer is a decorative exterior material, usually about one inch thick. It’s lightweight and usually designed from the natural stone for an authentic look and feel. This type of stone veneer is pre-engineered to be super easy to install.
Manufactured stone veneer tends to be more budget-friendly compared to natural stone veneer, as well. It’s offered in a variety of colors and styles.
