Nothing Beats Natural Stone.

Why Real Stone Veneer?

Natural stone veneer or real sawn thin stone is created from real, quarried stone that is sliced into thin pieces or otherwise cut to fit the needs of your design. Since it’s 100% real stone, it is naturally weather proof. It doesn’t chip or wear like manufactured stone veneer.

Find the Stone You Need

Not all stone veneers are real. And not all real stone veneers are created the same. Those who invest in Natural Facing understand the value of real stone veneer. And once they choose Natural Facing, they keep coming back. 

Real stone might be a couple dollars more a square foot, but over time it will not lose its color. In the early 2000’s manufactured stone was popular and very price effective because thin stone did not exist.  When I look at homes I built or homes that I visit as a realtor that are 15 to 20 years old the color has faded out.
