By MPG Stone Subscribe to RSS | January 13th 2012 | Views:

Stone veneer is a decorative and a protective covering used in interior and exterior flooring and wall cladding. The thickness is somewhat 1 inch and needs no extra support as made of natural stone.

Natural stone is one of the in-things today. However, heavy cost of transportation has made it out-of-reach for many. Stone veneer is a good option to fulfill your dream of natural stone furnishings. These are light in weight, flexible and most importantly within the reach of masses owing to its low transportation cost.

Stone veneers are preferred furnishing materials today due to its flexibility and looks. People can install these in the front as wall cladding as it gives the impression of natural stone and is actually the natural stone only but with a huge difference in cost factor. Natural stone is sawn so that it is of consistent thickness and weight to be used as veneer. There are some forms of stone made of manufactured artificial material like concrete and attached with mortars with special mortars.

There are many advantages in using natural stone veneers as decorative and protective layer:

First factor is cost: Natural stone in its original form is available in cost effective manner. Thin layers of natural stone are transported easily and at much lower cost as compared to natural stone slabs and tiles.

Weight of natural stone veneer is very less making it easier and cheaper to transport.

Variety: stone veneer is available in as many varieties as natural stone as practically every natural stone can be cut into stone veneers.

Flexible enough: stone veneer is flexible enough to be placed in curved nooks and corners making it practical to install natural stone in almost every part of your home.

Strong and withstanding: Natural stone veneer is strong and withstands natural environment when placed in exteriors as wall cladding or flooring.

Care must be taken to stock some extra tiles because there might be some shelling in near future that has to be replaced with fresh stone veneers. It is hard to place the same veneer on the place it was, again. Therefore, fresh veneer is needed and one must have the stock to install it in those rare circumstances.

Origin of Veneer dates back to Roman era when parts of Roman Coliseum were installed with marble veneer. New farm buildings are specifically treated with natural stone veneer because of low cost high profile looks created by these. Try this modern way of cost saving furnishing material and create fabulous effects.
