There are many benefits to using natural thin cut stone veneer including a wide range of applications, ease of use, and lower transportation costs. One of the biggest benefits of using Thin Veneer over Building Veneer is that it gives the appearance of a full thickness stone without the additional weight or need for a footing. Although these stones have been cut thin, when used with matching 90° corners it can be impossible to tell the difference. These cut pieces of stone are not just for wrapping around corners, but can be used in many ways to elevate your design. Below are a few examples of these applications.
TIP 2: CORNERS AS WALL CAPS
Whether it's a retaining or freestanding stone wall, one way to cap it is by using the Square & Rectangular or Round corners. Square & Rectangular corners can be used as a wall cap for the Ledgestone, Ashlar, Mosaic, and Square & Rectangular shapes. Round corners can be used as a cap for both the Round and Mosaic shapes.
TIP 3: CORNERS AROUND ARCHWAYS
Archways are a great way to spice up both interior and exterior doorways. Around the curve of the arch the use of corner pieces will create a seamless flow for the transition from vertical to horizontal. This can be done with either a soldier course or with corner pieces shaped into keystones.
