Do you know that we offer three types of fieldstone veneers? Don't worry, most people don't, and if they do, they may not understand the difference between all three. We call them Old New England Wall, Split Fieldstone, and Fieldstone Dark.

It may not seem like a big deal, but with varying characteristics, not understanding the difference can cause disappointment if the wrong collection ordered. Let's explore each one in detail:
3 Types of Fieldstone Veneer
1. Old New England Wall
Old New England Wall is named after the primary source of the material, stone walls in New England. The majority of the stone is sourced from Connecticut by collaborating with our partners who are responsible for removing these walls or clearing land. The exterior of the stone is often weathered with occasional lichen or moss and the primary color is tan with creams, browns, and greys. It's available in all five patterns and our Old New England Rounds.

2. Split Fieldstone
Split Fieldstone is exactly what you would expect it to be. We use a combination of harvested fieldstone and split it to expose the inside of the stone. The inside of the stone provides a color range much different than the exterior (earth tones) displaying greys, tans, creams, blacks, pinks, and other natural colors.

3. Fieldstone Dark
We call it Fieldstone Dark but it's often referred to as Pennsylvania (PA) Fieldstone. We harvest our material from Pennsylvania and New York to provide a unique and consistent blend of light and dark browns with some greys and blues similar to bluestone when split. Occasional lichen and moss can be found on the exterior which is often more smooth than the fieldstone we harvest from Connecticut.
