WHAT IS THIN VENEER MASONRY?Thin veneer masonry is the process of applying thin veneers over existing or new construction walls to give the appearance of a full-bodied product. The process is like tile and stucco installation. The use of thin set mortar, lath and scratch coats are all involved in doing thin veneer masonry. Thin veneers don’t add to the structural integrity of walls, but they do offer some protection from the elements and make the structure a little more resilient. The wide array of products available in thin veneer now makes its aesthetics desirable.
TYPES OF MASONRY VENEERSThere are several types of masonry veneers available on the market today and each offer something different. Our expert designers will work closely with and consider your requirements, budget, and the property’s architecture carefully before recommending a specific type of veneer for your home. You can choose from:
- Brick Thin Veneers – Thin brick veneers is the process of taking real bricks and cutting the face of the brick off taking out the bulky size. The brick is then mortared on to the wall generally using a thin set mortar. Brick thin veneers offer great protection against the elements and offer superior moisture control. Brick is also a non-combustible material which means your home has additional protection.
- Stone Thin Veneer – Natural Stone thin veneers is real natural stone that has the face of the stone cut off to remove the bulkiness of a full builders grade stone veneer which is 3 to 5 inches thick. Stone is highly durable and weather-resistant, which means it can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications. The material is available in a wide range of textures and colors so you’re sure to find something that suits your taste.
- Manufactured Thin Veneer – Manufactured Thin veneer is designed to mimic real natural stone veneers. However, it is concrete that has been casted in a mold with the color applied during the process. This is a great because the color is man-made so it can be controlled to a degree whereas real natural stone thin veneers are natural, and color can vary. However, keep in mind that the color is only skin deep on manufactured thin veneers and once it is chipped, the aggregates inside will show.
