It is very common to see a new home with a beautiful stone or brick fireplace. But more and more we are seeing the stone and brick go beyond just the fireplace to create amazing accent walls.

Manufactured Stone Veneer is a man-made cast product which is produced to replicate real stone. There are a number of advantages of manufactured stone vs natural stone with the top ones being (1) total cost, (2) ease of installation, and (3) weight of the product.
The total cost of the product and installation of manufactured stone is typically a lot less than with natural stone. Because it is a man-made product, it is manufactured for the ease of installation. Manufactured stone is also lighter weight than natural stone. You should always consult a structural engineer before installing brick or stone in your home, but with manufactured stone you typically don’t need extra structural reinforcement in your home to compensate for the weight of the product.

Natural Stone Veneer is exactly what it sounds like, it is real stone that is cut as a veneer to be installed on a wall. Natural Stone Veneer gives an authentic look with all of the unique characteristics of natural stone that cannot be mimicked in manufactured stone. Natural Stone Veneer is heavier than manufactured stone, so it is even more important to consult a structural engineer about your project before you begin.

Most brick that is currently being used on residential interior projects is a Thin Brick Veneer. Thin brick veneer can give your wall the rich, elegant appearance that only brick can provide. Like stone veneer, thin brick veneer is either a cast product or a thin slice of the brick’s face that has been cut from a full brick. Thin brick veneer is installed similar in process to stone veneer rather than how traditional brick is installed.  But when a project is completed, you have the appearance of a beautiful brick wall.
