The term “Thin Veneer” is often mistakenly thought of as fake or artificial rock when it is actually a natural stone. In the manufacturing of veneer, the natural stone is cut with an average bed depth of one inch and this veneer or facing is installed over the front of a sub surface. Finished bed depth will range from about .75 inch to 1.25 inches as the surface of natural stones will vary in texture. Since the thin veneer has a weight on average of 13 pounds per square foot, it can be used in most applications where an artificial product may be specified initially.
Natural stone has a far superior finished look with no artificial coloring or bland , repetitive patterns. Best of all it has strength and longevity!
