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.

If you can’t afford natural stone for your home, you don’t have to abandon the idea of creating the look that it brings. Stone veneer looks like the real thing at a fraction of the cost. 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.

However, here are some tips that will make your stone veneer wall look better, last longer and will make it easier to install:

You can also buy pre-mixed mortar that eliminates the worry about it being too thin, but it is more expensive.
