About our Thin Veneer
There is a common misinterpretation of the term “Veneer Stone” within the building industry. Most people hear “Veneer Stone” and think it refers to fake or “Manufactured Stone”. More appropriate descriptive terms such “Manufactured Veneer Stone” and” Natural Veneer Stone” might help make such a distinction. Rademann Stone and Landscape Co., Inc., only sells “Natural Veneer Stone” whether “Thin Veneer” or “Full Veneer”.
All our Veneer Stone, both Full and Thin, is Quarried in or around the Fond du Lac area. After the Stone is Quarried, the raw product is delivered to our manufacting facilitiy where it is Sawed, Split, and Packaged; ready for distribution.
Thin Veneer Stone is manufactured by taking a piece of Full Veneer Stone and "sawing out the middle" leaving you with two pieces of "thinner" stone. Thin Veneer is roughly 3/4" - 1 1/4" thick, compared to Full Veneer which is 4-5" thick. Thin Veneer is about 25% of the weight of Full Veneer. Typically no Brick Ledge is necessary when installing Thin Veneer and can be applied to almost any wall (if prepped correctly). Aesthetically there is no difference between Full and Thin Veneer.
Thin Veneer is sold by the Square Foot when talking about Flats and Linear Foot when talking about 90 Degree Corners.
It is Packaged as follows:
- Flat Crates: 150 Square Feet
- Flat Boxes: 10 Square Feet
- Corner Crates: 100 Linear Feet
- Corner Boxes: 10 Linear Feet
