A quick drive today by any new upscale subdivision featuring fine homes will most likely show some type of stone veneer product on the entrance wall or as an accent trim on many of the homes themselves. Today we are seeing a clear design trend in America toward more “natural looking” building materials for upscale homes. As consumers tire of the “everyday look” of conventional siding or brick, stone veneer products are quickly becoming a standard upgrade option offered by builders to consumers desiring an affordable means to give high-end curb appeal to the exterior of their new home.
Additionally, stone veneer products are quickly becoming a popular design option for the interior living space in fine homes.
While at one time stone was installed inside the home almost exclusively for fireplaces, fine home designers today are specifying stone veneer finishes for interior walls in grand foyers, designer kitchens, and custom bathrooms. It’s thin profile and lightweight composition allows the stone veneer to be installed without the cost of additional footings or wall ties
