Simulated Stone Veneer

Simulated stone veneer has evolved into a sophisticated industry with an increasing variety of options. Although many years ago, simulated stone was an obvious "fake", manufacturing technology has dramatically improved resulting is some amazing products.  

Due to the range of colors and textures, we offer two lines of manufactured simulated stone veneer:  Environmental Stoneworks and EP Henry Company's Cast Stone Veneer.  Environmental Stoneworks, a long time participant in this industry, offers a huge selection of styles and colors.  EP Henry entered this market segment more recently but has built a beautiful and growing selection of products.

There are four major differences between natural and simulated stone veneer:

  1. With natural stone, the color variance is caused by nature.  The supplier sorts the stone into colors and the customer chooses how to mix these colors into a finished blend.  With manufactured veneer, the manufacturer creates a portfolio of color blends.  The product purchased will exhibit the blend in a very predictable manner.  The customer does not have to craft color combinations.
  2. Simulated stone is less expensive that natural stone.
  3. Simulated stone is lighter in weight than natural stone making installation easier in many ways.
  4. However, the color is on the surface of manufactured veneer whereas natural stone has the same color and texture throughout.  Consequently, manufactured veneer can not be cut or chipped without reveling its white concrete interior.
