Whether you’re planning your dream home or an award winning commercial project, we have your stone veneer surfacing needs covered.
Surface Shop’s Product Design & Sourcing Team have spent decades working with architects, designers, contractors, and developers refining various styles of stone veneer. We’ve seen it all. Armed with that knowledge, we have curated and optimized what we believe to be the very best range of styles and colors to meet the needs of today’s design minded discerning customers. These styles include:
A product category born out of the thin stone revolution of the early 2000s, stone wall panels generally consist of cut pieces of natural stone that are glued or epoxied together into a standardized panel format that is highly calibrated and is designed to install similar to a tile. This stone veneer comes in a variety of styles and textures ranging from dry stacked split face to modern honed panels.
This more traditional look consist of stone veneers that come in a loose format and are designed to be installed with little to no gapping between the individual stones. Carefully selected color blends, shapes, and sizes, along with traditional attention to detail during installation are the magic ingredients that make our Dry Stack Stone Veneer look classic and timeless.
These stone veneer products are all about creating a distinct linear look through the cut and design of the products themselves. Linear stone veneer comes in a variety of finishes from the more modern inspired honed and polished surfaces to more traditional split face. What all these products have in common is a focus on length over width.
Incorporating many of the same elements as our dry stack ledgestones, TerraForm™ Stone Veneer is perfect for those projects that think beyond straight lines and tight dry fits. Generally larger in size, TerraForm™ Stone Veneer is installed and then mortared in to create a unique multi-directional look.
One of the beautiful things about stone is that it can be worked, cut, and fabricated into all sorts of different shapes, sizes, and products. The Traditional Format Stone Veneer products use many of the same stones available in other Surface Shop Series in more traditional sizes that are great for both flooring and wall cladding.
This stone veneer series builds on the concept of a loose ledgestone product akin to our Dry Stack Series, but modifies it into rough cut squares and rectangles of varying sizes that can be laid in a variety of either repeating or non repeating patterns. Choose Ashlar to add an artistic style to your project.

With so many different options for Stone Veneer on the market, we often get asked how long will my Natural Stone Veneer last?
Unlike manufactured stone veneers, which often fade and degrade over time, one of the beautiful aspects of working with Natural Stone Veneer is that, with proper installation, it will easily last multiple generations. This is of course self-evident by taking a walk down any street in Europe, but for those of us who are building and designing residential and commercial properties, we want to be certain that the choices we make today are enduring.
The more nuanced answer to how long will my Natural Stone Veneer Last is that the porosity and durability of the underlying natural stone do have an impact on how well that stone will hold up over time. Very porous natural stone products, for example those made from poor quality slates, will not last very long in more demanding climates, like those in the Freeze/Thaw areas of the United States and Canada. In those climates, you will have better long term results with stone veneers that are less porous and more dense.
Contrary to what many might think, not all Stone Veneers are made from Real Stone. Since about the mid 1990s, there has been a movement in United States Manufacturing to create Stone Veneers made from concrete or, even in some cases, foam.
These products, as you might imagine, do not have the same durability characteristics as Stone Veneers made from real stone, but are often selected because consumers don't realize they have the option of selecting real stone veneer at a similar price point. When shopping for Stone Veneer, make sure you are aware of all of the differences between Faux Stone (manufactured stone) and Natural Stone.
We at Surface Shop only carry Natural Stone products because we believe the beauty and durability of working with natural materials brings value to any project in a way that manufactured stone simply cannot. Similar to using granite or marble for your kitchen countertops, using Natural Stone Veneer as your cladding of choice offers far better long term satisfaction and value to the project.
Depending on where you are in the country and where you are sourcing materials, Natural Stone Veneer can be either more or less than manufactured stone.
Current manufactured stone products tend to price out around $10-12/sf, and in some cases higher than that. Natural Stone Veneer, on the other hand, can have a wide range depending on the color, process of extraction, country of origin, and purchasing channel.
Because Natural Stone offers so much more value to a project than manufactured stone, there is no question that, even if Natural Stone is slightly higher than a given manufactured stone, selecting the Natural Stone alternative is the better long term option from a client satisfaction and value proposition standpoint.
