HOW NATURAL THIN STONE VENEER Differentiates From The Competition:

  • Due to the reduced weight of thin veneer, less structural steel is needed to support wall assemblies. On average, thin veneer weighs 1/4 to 1/5 that of its full veneer counterpart.

  • Minimum of 6" of space is gained by reducing wall thickness when using thin veneer. Space savings in wall assemblies allow a greater yield of square footage on concrete foundations or reduce their costs.

  • Moisture barriers in a thin veneer application allow for a more easily assembled and simplified flashing detail.

  • Thin veneer applications call for less structural rigidity and therefore can be specified to L/360 versus L/600. Full veneer sizes require a minimum of L/600 and costs more money to build.

  • Thin veneer can be installed by one sub-contractor, thereby reducing construction costs in scaffolding, weather membranes and sub-contractor minimums.

  • Due to thin veneer's environmentally friendly manufacturing process and shipping capacities, many different LEED points can be earned to achieve green building certification

  • "R-Factor Friendly" insulation board can be used in a continuous layer of insulation around the perimeter of the building.
