Looking for a home makeover? Affordable Tuckpointing Pros offers professional stone veneer repair and replacement. Stone Veneer is used as a decorative or protective covering for any wall or surface. Stone veneer can be made from natural stone as well as manufactured stone. A few different terms used to describe stone veneer are artificial stone, manufactured stone, flexible stone veneer and stacked stone veneer.
Manufactured stone veneer is a decorative building material created to replicate the look of natural stone. Natural stone veneer is made from real stone that is either quarried or collected. The stone is cut to a consistent thickness and weight for use as a veneer. This stone is often called thin stone veneer.
The advantages of manufactured stone veneer over natural stone are:
- variety of designs and colors
Manufactured veneer is cheaper than natural stone, approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of natural stone. Its light weight eliminates the need for wall ties or footings and makes it easier and cheaper to build. Furthermore, manufactured stone veneer has a significantly smaller waste factor than natural stone. The variety of designs and colors makes available options which would not be available with natural stone, since natural stone is used in the general area around the locality which it is extracted.
