Ledge Stone Veneers: a Lighter and Cheaper Alternative

By MPG Stone Subscribe to RSS | July 10th 2012 | Views:

It’s always exciting to hear about developments in interior design. If these new trends happen to be cost-effective too, then that’s even better news.

Plenty of homeowners, designers and contractors are now trying out ledge stone veneers for their home renovation or construction projects. Ledge stone veneers have the best of both worlds: they’re stunning but more affordable than ledge stone tiles made from real stone.

How is this possible? Ledge stone veneers replicate the appearance and appeal of expensive natural stones but only for a fraction of the cost.

What are ledge stone veneers?

Dental veneers for the teeth work by coating the original set of teeth making it more beautiful and stronger. Ledge stone veneers work the same way. Unlike expensive natural ledge stone tiles, the stone-like appearance of ledge stone veneers only runs up until the surface.

Ledge stone veneers are actually made from a combination of Portland cement, real natural stones, iron oxide pigments and water repellents.

Combining stone elements with cheaper ingredients makes ledge stone veneers far more affordable than all natural ledge stone tiles. In this economy where every penny counts, they are practical alternatives for those designers or homeowners who are working on a tight budget.

Ledge stone veneers also provide its users the key benefits of real natural stones. They have enough elements of natural stones to be strong against wear and tear, temperature change and different types of weather. Ledge stone veneers are sturdy enough to be used for outdoor wall cladding.

What are the other advantages of ledge stone veneers?

Ledge stone tiles are typically used for walls, fireplaces and borders. Ledge stone tiles lend more texture and color to an interior design and are very often used as accents.

The fact that ledge stone veneer is lighter actually makes them easier to manage. They are easier to install. In some cases, additional reinforcement to the foundation of a house is necessary to support heavy ledge stone tiles. You don’t experience this kind of problem with ledge stone veneers.

Should users decide to replace some of the tiles, using ledge stone veneers is less of a hassle. Transporting large quantities of natural ledge stone tiles is harder.

Now, homeowners need not worry about spending a lot should they want to jazz up their patios, grill areas and other living spaces with beautiful ledge stone tile. Natural-looking and much lighter ledge stone veneers are great-looking and very practical alternatives.

Homeowners must however consult a professional—a contractor, architect or interior designer—before making major investments and decisions on home improvement.
