What is Thin Stone Veneer?
Thin Stone Veneer stone is most easily described as a natural stone, cut to a nominal thickness of 1”-1 ½”. Depending upon the root material, some thin veneer can have a greater thickness - see the specifications listed on each individual product page for more details.
So, why would a person want thin stone?
Many contractors prefer thin veneer stone because it installs quicker due to the reduced weight. Other projects, like remodeling/ additions or interior spaces, require thin stone because the original structure was not designed to handle the weight of full stone. Finally, some individuals prefer to use thin veneer because it is ordered in specific square feet, whereas full stone is ordered by the ton.
