Current Obsessions: Are Stacked Stone Veneers Made with Natural Stone?

February 12, 2017

For adding warmth and character to vertical surfaces both inside and outside the home, there’s nothing like stacked ledger stone. Many of these products have a 3-D texture, featuring split-faced rock arranged at varying depths. The look is natural and charming, but many people seem unclear about one important point: Is it real stone, or something else?

Stacked stone veneers, also known as ledger panels, are pre-cut and arranged for easy application. The result is a reduction in cost, time, and work over full-size alternative split-face rock – despite this, however, they still deliver superb beauty and value. And no matter what they are called, be it “faux veneer,” “veneer panels,” or similar, be assured that MSI’s stacked stone veneers are as real as the rocks you dig up in your garden.
