Stone Veneer Exterior Siding - Styles & Design
Stone Veneer exterior siding is also used as a protective and decorative covering for exterior or interior horizontal walls and surfaces. The veneer is typically 1 inch thick and must weigh less than 15 lbs. per square foot so that no additional structural supports will be required. Stone veneer can be made from natural stone or manufactured stone. Natural stone veneer is made from real stone that is either collected i.e. Fieldstone, or from quarried stone.
The stone is sawn so that it is a consistent thickness and weight for use as a veneer. This stone is often called thin stone veneer. Manufactured stone veneer is a decorative building material manufactured to replicate the look of natural stone.
Stone veneer does not depend on nature for its supply and is abundantly available due to its mass production. This aspect lends it the characteristics of a green product. If compared with the hand-picked natural stone, the mass produced stone veneer is usually a more economical alternative to the homeowner. Stone veneer is purposely designed as a lighter material and a relatively practical alternative to the natural stone.

Interior Stone Veneer Areas in your Home
It's not out of the ordinary when a homeowner wants to be sure that their home is as comfortable and attractive as they can make it. It's also not unusual that many would prefer to have the ability to apply natural stone or brick to the outside of the home which they have spent a great deal of time and attention on. Occasionally that dream is squelched by the price of those more traditional products and solutions.
Stone veneer was created to relieve the disappointment that is included with the realization that there will be no way to make that dream become a reality. Now that man-made stone has entered the market, more and more people will be able to save a huge amount of money, while at the same time getting the look and feel that they want. This is because artificial stone costs at the very least 1/3 less than natural stone or brick.
Manufactured stone is created utilizing a lightweight combination of concrete, and other materials that give it the consistency required to produce a product which will be very easily placed on the walls of any house. One thing which should not be overlooked is that this lighter weight product is well suited for use on the inside walls, as well as those on the outside. A lot of fireplace surrounds are showing off the updated look of stone veneer, and that man cave has never looked better when the use of this phenomenal product is complete.
Stone Veneer Fireplaces
A fireplace offers warmth to your house and a classy touch to a room, but it doesn't always reflect your own style. You are able to fix that with a stone veneer fireplace.
A fireplace provides heat for our rooms, but also is an architectural element in an area that really must be addressed when renovating and redecorating.

The use of stone veneers will enable you to include your fireplace in any new, fresh design you're thinking of for your home.
