There are many challenges that come with choosing the perfect stone veneer when it's one of your design elements. For me, there is a great deal of stress associated with choosing stone because it’s not something you can easily change after the decision has been made and the stone has been laid. Whether you’re starting from scratch with a new build, or picking a stone that needs to match an existing space, the process can be stressful either way. After recently completing our home I was excited to share my experience and tips to help you select the stone for your project!

The Walkway Over The Hudson State Park was once a railroad bridge that connected Highland, NY and Poughkeepsie, NY. According to their website the bridge was built in 1889 to help carry freight across the Hudson River and after many years of service was converted to a New York State Historic Park in 2009. Each year the park welcomes over 500,000 visitors to majestic views of the Hudson Valley... and now some of our stone veneer!

One of the most common questions we receive has to do with the difference in faux stone veneer and real stone veneer. Faux stone has many names: cultured, manufactured, fake, and artificial are a few that come to mind. It can often be confusing for the first time buyer of these products to determine if they are looking at a real or natural stone product or something that is manufactured.
