Natural Stone Veneer on Cape Cod Overview
Stone Veneer is a versatile product suitable for custom applications such as: outdoor kitchens, stone benches and seating, fire pits, retaining walls, sitting walls, exposed foundations, siding, chimneys, and fireplaces.
Natural Stone Veneer gives a structure built with cement masonry, or even carpentry, the appearance of construction with beautiful and timeless natural stone. Among other options for its various applications, like stucco & red clay brick for masonry, and cedar, vinyl, and cement-board for siding, natural stone veneer is often considered the most aesthetically pleasing option. While the aesthetic is a matter of subjective preference, when properly installed, Natural Stone Veneer is certainly the most durable and maintenance free construction of any siding or veneer application -- both because of the natural longevity of stone itself (millions of years), and the relatively non-absorbent nature of many types of stone. Moreover, Certain Stone Veneers give a Cape Cod feel to a home or outdoor space.
Thin Natural Stone Veneer
Thin Stone Veneer is made from sections of natural stone cut as thin as 3/4-1" thickness. The Stone is then applied with a highly adhesive mortar to a prepared surface.
Because the mechanics of Thin Stone Veneer installation can be completed by tradesmen with a variety of skillsets, it's not uncommon to see thin stone veneer installations that don't look like true stone masonry and as such don't improve the value of your Cape Cod home the way Stone Veneer should.
Thin Stone Veneer must be applied, and also manufactured (a typically overlooked point), in a certain way to produce a true traditional natural stone masonry look for your home. Inquire today to speak with a seasoned stone mason about your Cape Cod Stone Veneer Project.
