When there is a discussion about stone veneer most people think of the manufactured or faux stone. We refer to our process as manufacturing but make no mistake about it, our stone is 100% real. This is a common question and we are often asked how this process works. As Director of Operations I thought a short video would help explain what we do to make the stone veneer you order from us every day.

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.

One of the most popular stone veneer products is fieldstone. In New England, the fieldstone is weathered and primarily brown, tan, and grey in color, known as "Earth Tones". When originally harvested and used for walls or homes, this stone was often split to make it easier to work with. Rather than accept the split stone as waste, they would still use the split face for their building needs. Unlike fieldstone (Old New England Rounds or Wall), once split, fieldstone becomes unpredictably colorful. A product we call Split Fieldstone

Instead of wasting our time on something they have already worked hard on, we have decided to share their guide.
