Instead of working with whole natural stone from the ground up, consider adding Oklahoma stone veneer to your project. These materials can be placed over other building materials like wood or concrete, resulting in features that have the appearance, strength, and durability of natural stone (without taking up the amount of space that the whole versions require).
Natural stone veneer is a convenient and visually appealing option for many interior and exterior projects, such as feature walls and fireplace surrounds. Before displaying this material in your home or commercial building, you likely want to learn more about it.
What Is Oklahoma Stone Veneer?
Stone veneer comes from whole building stone. After the natural stone Oklahoma is quarried, the stones are cut and shaped to an ideal size, shape, and thickness. The texture may also be honed for a smoother look. Popular styles of veneer include:
- Cut. These stones have defined edges. The pieces may be rectangular or square and have varying widths and heights.
- Tumbled. These stones have more rounded edges. These are also available in different shapes, widths, and heights.
- Contemporary. These stones have defined edges and honed textures. The pieces are narrow and have consistent sizes.
When you visit an Oklahoma stone supplier, there should be stone flats and corners available. The flat shapes are for frontward-facing pieces, while the L-shaped corner pieces will wrap onto two sides of a wall.
How Thick Should Veneer Stone Be?
Because these materials are cut and shaped from whole stones, you may wonder how the veneer retains the same level of strength and durability. As long as the veneer is cut from quality stone and has the minimum level of thickness, these qualities should remain.
At Richburg Stone, we offer a range of veneer selections between 1” and 1 ½” thick.
