Natural thin stone veneer and castle rock are thin cuts of building stone, typically around 1” thick and available in various sizes depending on your project needs. Like building stone, thin stone veneers and castle rock are completely made up of quarried stone and do not include concrete composites.
Natural thin stone veneer and castle rock can be used for everything from interior and exterior building walls to fireplace, chimney, and firepit facades.
Natural thin stone veneer and castle rock are applied to a vertical surface using mortar. The service needs to be correctly waterproofed and prepared before installation. It can be installed professionally or by homeowners with suitable knowledge of working with the material. To extend the lifetime of the product, Prestige Stone & Granite always recommends having a professional install your thin stone veneer and castle rock.
Thin Stone Veneer: Coal Canyon, Arctic White, White Chestnut, Alaska White, Amber Falls, Golden White, Golden Honey, California Gold, Sierra Blue, and Sterling. Castle Rock: Legacy Grey.
As a natural product, the stones will maintain their original look for years longer than manufactured options, but it is always important to properly maintain your thin stone veneer or castle rock installation. To clean your interior or exterior thin stone veneer or castle rock, we recommend using a sponge with warm water and a light soap or detergent. You can use a soft bristle brush but avoid wire bristles.
Avoid applying acidic based cleaners, such as grout or bathroom cleaners, to your stone. Also, stay away from using lemon juice, vinegar, and other multi-purpose cleaning agents. The strong acidic properties of these cleaners are too strong and could end up damaging your stone. Instead, you want to use gentle cleaners and soaps, specifically designed for cleaning natural stone.
For most indoor installations you will not need to seal your stone. For outdoor applications with exposure to the elements, please consult with your contractor for an appropriate sealer.
