About Stoneyard.com Thin Veneer:
We start with natural stone from the farms and fields of New England. Thin Veneer is sawn to 1 inch thick, reducing the weight to less than 14 pounds per square foot. This allows our natural stone to be used in applications that do not have a masonry foundation.
Thin veneer is chosen on new construction because it is more affordable to ship and install. Thin veneer is almost always chosen for renovations such as re-siding an outside wall, an interior wall, a cement foundation, or a fireplace.
Thin veneer can be applied over wall surfacing like cement board or wood siding. The mortar supports the weight of the stone. On exterior applications we recommend a cavity weep system to provide an escape outlet for moisture that works its way behind the porous stone and mortar. This prevents efflorescence, mold, and water damage behind the stone. See our installation instruction for more details.
