There are several benefits to choosing natural thin stone veneer. Here we will focus on 5 benefits, but first let’s talk about what, exactly, thin stone veneer is:

Thin Stone Veneer (TSV) benefits

Thin stone veneer is raw, natural stone that gets cut into thin flat pieces. There are a variety of patterns that TSV can be assembled into. One of the best features of Thin Stone Veneer is that even after being cut and  broken down, it maintains the natural beauty and texture of the stone just as it was when it came out of the earth, making for surfaces that are uniquely beautiful.

Simply put, TSV is thinner cuts of mason stone which are aligned into specific arrays of patterns to achieve various appeals.



Stone veneer is extremely versatile. Apply it on both exterior and interior surfaces. Stone veneer adds a touch of elegance to the face of any surface in your home or commercial structure, and it provides an immediate bump to that curb appeal. 

When you are ready to make an upgrade to your home or building, stone veneer is a fast and easy option. While a touch paint can do wonders for a dated space, the addition of natural stone is unmatched. Upgrading your asset is fast and easy with stone. It will instantly transform the look of your home or commercial space.

Using natural stone veneer almost guarantees an instant increase in value to your asset. Most home upgrades provide some sort of return on investment. But none can match the value of natural stone veneer. Did you know that natural stone veneer has a return investment as much as 95%? That means for every dollar you invest in the natural stone veneer project, you can expect as much as 95¢ back in increased home value. No other home upgrade gives back that much!

Whether or not your main focus is to decrease your carbon footprint, you'll be doing just that by choosing natural stone veneer for your project. Stone veneer is a natural product and does not undergo any chemical treatments when being processed out of large boulders and cut down into the stylish shapes pulled off the pallets for final application.


Stone is extremely durable. It will stand the test of time and the elements. Just take a trip to Italy and look around at the old-world architecture. Sure, you could go see old-world architecture in many places around the world... but who says "no" to a trip to Italy?

Stone will stand true for a long, long time. Did you know that in times of war, important works of art and artifacts were moved to secure locations encased by stone? This practice was to guard against damage and destruction brought about by air raid bombings. That should be a tag-line: "Natural Stone: So durable it will withstand an air raid bombing! Protect your valuables with Natural Stone!"
