What is Manufactured Stone Veneer?
Manufactured Stone Veneer is a non-load bearing attractive and decorative layer of veneer that is installed over an existing wall to mimic the look of natural stone.
History of Manufactured Stone Veneer
Stone veneer was developed in the 19th century as a solution to adding stone façades to buildings without requiring a full stone wall. Since then, innovations in manufacturing processes have allowed it to be cut even thinner which lowers transportation and installation labor costs. Today, stone veneer can be used not only on exterior walls, but columns, fireplaces, and interior accents to add warmth to homes and commercial buildings.
Manufactured Stone Veneer uses a mix of concrete and additives to create the look and feel of natural stone. The installation of Manufactured Stone Veneer requires traditional masonry utilizing mortar to adhere to the surface of the application.

Benefits of Manufactured Stone Veneer
Boost Curb Appeal
Adding manufactured stone veneer to a building’s exterior enhances curb appeal and brings a natural look and feel to create visual interest and stand out amongst other dwellings. Along with curb appeal, stone veneer can even be used to elevate outdoor fireplaces, patios, and outdoor kitchens.
Increased Resale Value
For residential projects, the increased curb appeal of a home impacts the resale value. Including Manufactured Stone Veneer in a residential construction or remodel has a high return on investment compared to most other residential projects.
If you are looking to add the look of stone to an existing home, new build, or commercial project, Manufactured Stone Veneer is quicker and more cost effective to install than traditional solid stone walls. StoneWorks provides installation services ensuring proper installation for long-lasting performance.
