What Are Stone Veneers?
A stone veneer is a thin layer of decorative stone that is fixed to the exterior of a structure. It is not load bearing and is only designed to make the structure beautiful. Stone veneers have been used for the facades of buildings since the early 1800s and are common in many American cities with historic districts.
Although the modern version of stone veneers has been around for just over 200 years, its history goes back to the ancient Romans. For example, there is evidence that large sections of the Coliseum in Rome were covered in marble veneers fixed to concrete blocks. The idea was to give the Coliseum an old-fashioned look that reminded people of the (already) ancient Greeks! Imagine that?
So it’s not surprising that many people in Sarasota love stone facades for their vintage look. A stone veneer installed by the professional crew at Contemporary Stone Work, LLC will give your property a flair of drama without ostentation. It’s an affordable way to remodel the exterior of any home or business!
Natural or Manufactured Stone Veneer?
There are two basic types of stone veneers: natural stone and manufactured stone. Natural stone veneers are harvested from stone quarries around the world. This means that there is a huge selection of styles and colors. Because the color and pattern of the stones cannot be predicted, every surface of natural stone veneer is unique. To ensure the highest quality in every job, Contemporary Stone Work, LLC only uses natural stone veneers from leading brands.
Manufactured stone veneers have the advantage of being customizable. The look of natural stone is achieved by pouring lightweight concrete into molds. Dyes are added to the mixture to achieve the desired color and pattern. This gives masonry contractors more flexibility which they can pass onto the consumer. Because these veneers don’t have to be cut from quarries and transported large distances, they tend to be a more affordable alternative.
