What is stone veneer?
Stone veneer is generally a 1 inch thick, man made alternative to natural stone. It is made by using special molds, and lightweight concrete to form what look like a tile version of stone. They weigh a lot less than natural stone, so they can be applied to walls without additional support. By using a very strong mortar, the tiles are placed onto walls with a permanent seal.
