How Does Thin Stone Veneer "Stack-up" to its Full-Depth Counterpart? - Virginia

Most experts agree, thin stone veneer has many advantages to regular stone veneer. It is more economical in price, is lighter in overall weight, and is simpler to install. So if this were true, wouldn't it have already replaced regular stone veneer in all applications? Not always.


Perhaps the most hotly debated topic among both camps is how the cost savings of thin stone veneer will affect the job you are doing. While this is true in most regards, it's important to first look at how this cost savings is computed, compared to full-depth veneer. 

  • Faster installation for contractors. Even if you require more thin veneer than full-depth veneer, the job will still get done in less time.
  • Manufacturing thin stone veneer out of full-depth veneer will also save you money, even if it's slightly more costly per square foot, you will still be able to get two pieces out of one stone.
  • Freight savings. Because it's lighter, the cost of shipping goes down, passing that savings on to you.
