Natural thin veneer stone is created using high quality, full thickness stone and processed with special diamond bladed saws to cut off the outside layer. This produces veneers with thicknesses of 3/4″ to 1 1/2 inches at an average weight of 10 to 15 lbs/sq.ft. (depending on stone selection). Our thin veneer allows you to use real stone on your buildings but without the weight of full thickness veneer.
Despite this prevailing notion, there are many other types of natural stone finishes that may turn out to be more appropriate for your taste and your needs and will still add charm and elegance to your surroundings. Depending on the kind of stone you have selected for your project, you can choose a specific finish that will best reveal its natural beauty, be easy to maintain, and create the impression you’ve been looking for.
It is achieved through intense heating followed by rapid cooling which results in a rough texture and relief surface.
The mirror-like shine and smoothness of polished stone is achieved by using progressively finer polishing heads while grinding, sanding, and buffing the stone at source to bring out its rich colors and character. The surface becomes highly reflective – it catches the light in a fascinating manner and emphasizes the colors resulting in visual depth and stunning beauty.
A high pressure blast of sand is applied to the stone surface to achieve a roughened texture. The stone looks weathered and its natural beauty is fully revealed.
Diamond Wire Brushing
Uses a coarse rotary wire brush that provides a worn down look that simulates natural wear over time. Also known as antiqued finish, it creates an illusion of natural wear and results in gently embossed, medieval look of the stone.
Honed means the surface of the stone has been ground to a smooth, flat, consistent surface. For stones with a natural shine such as granite or marble, the polish or shine is removed leaving a matte (unpolished) surface with little to no reflection and no bumps or ridges.
We can drill a hole into any stone making it a fountain or art piece. The standard sized hole is 11/4″ in diameter but we can drill larger holes to fit your project.
