Tips for Using Stone Veneer

Natural stone adds a unique and majestic look to a home. Whether it’s a wall over your porch or entryway on the exterior or an interior wall or fireplace, stone makes homes more beautiful.

With stone veneer, you can create a wall that looks so natural that you just might be the only one who knows it’s not real.

Attaching stone veneer has some pretty “duh” aspects about it – things that most any person should know. You pick out the stone, attach it to your wall with mortar and, voila, you have a stone veneer wall.
