What is Thin Stone?

Updated:2008-08-06 10:02:14

Beautiful, natural thin stone veneer is a facing product — real stone that doesn't need the ledger, footings or wall ties required by conventional, full veneer products. Instead, thin stone veneer is lightweight enough to be supported by the wall it covers. This means that builders can construct a conventional wood frame or block backup and apply real stone over the surface.

But is it "thin stone," "sliced stone" or "Natural Thin Veneer"? The product has taken off so quickly, even those who produce and sell it don't refer to it by a single name. Outside the business, these interchangeable terms have sometimes led to confusion. Real stone tile is thin, stone panels designed for building facings, as is the stone facing of precast concrete panels. Is there a difference between these products and what the industry refers to as "thin stone"?

Joe Dellacroce, CEO of Connecticut Stone Supplies, defined his thin stone product this way: "Thin stone is natural or rough-cut stone in an ashlar or a mosaic pattern, fitted together like standard four-inch or six-inch bed depth, rough-cut stone. Because thin stone is cut to a 3/4-inch to 1-1/4-inch depth, it offers the dimensional beauty of natural, rough-cut stone to any interior or exterior surface, without the expensive support structures required by conventional full-stone products."

Ron Vetter, president of Vetter Stone Company/Alabama Stone Company, clarified it further: "Thin stone is strictly thin, split-face stone, and not smooth stone adhered to a panelized system; a 'honeycomb' panelized system is another natural stone building product, but quite different than thin split-face stone."
