Surface Shop has curated some of the most remarkable and unique Stacked Stone Veneers for fireplaces from all over the world.
Ranging from the traditional loose format split face style of our Dry Stack Ledgestone to the puzzle-like fitting of TERRAFORM™, or the super installation-friendly Stacked Stone Panel System products, we have a style, scale, and color perfect for your project.
Stacked stone veneer fireplaces, while commonly associated with the traditional split face or ledgestone style look, can also now incorporate more modern styled stone finishes, such as honed and saw cut natural stone products, that still deliver the tight dry stacked look of stacked stone but with a modern twist.
A Stacked Stone Fireplace provides a timeless, classic look for what is invariably the focal point of a room and often the central gathering place that makes a house a home.
With the obvious benefit and function of providing warmth, the fireplace has also become a harbinger of style for a given space and an opportunity to set the design intent and feel of that room and the space beyond.
The durability and iconic style of stacked stone makes it an easy choice for a fireplace that will still look great in 5 or 10 years and beyond, but Surface Shop’s many styles of stone for fireplace walls are all worth consideration.
The challenge with cladding most fireplaces is what to do with the outside corners.
An outside corner using stacked stone or a motar-jointed veneer can not only be a technical challenge from an installation standpoint, but it’s also almost always a very prominent feature of the fireplace. Therefore it’s really important that it looks as good as all of the stone around it.
At Surface Shop we’ve been fine-tuning our corner systems since we started. We’ve developed the world’s first and only finger-jointed corner system for many of our panel system products. For our loose thin stone collections, we feature top of the line L-Shaped Corners, which are cut from larger blocks. So, whether you choose to feature a prominent grout joint, or go with a mortarless dryfit style, you’ll have a fantastic corner option to complete the job.
Outside corners are not an area to overlook for a stacked stone fireplace, so demand and get the best options in the market with Surface Shop.
Our Surface Shop Pros make Stone Veneer Sampling and Selection a Breeze.
Many Surface Shop products in the Stacked Stone Panel Series are designed to be installed over existing fireplace substrates, such as unpainted brick, which allows for fast and simple installation in renovation applications. This makes it easy to cover a brick fireplace with stone, for example. The ability to cover up an old, ugly, outdated fireplace and completely change the look, sometimes in as short a time as an afternoon, is what makes our stacked stone panel series for fireplaces such an exciting group of products.
One thing we really love about our Fireplace materials is how they work so well with both classic and modern Styling. So much of it depends on some of the design cues around the fireplace itself, such as the style, size and shape of the fireplace insert and any other features on the face of the fireplace such as a television recess or art nook. Either way, stacked stone fireplaces can hold court in a rustic mountain cabin with taxidermy above it or in a swank California beach house where everything is smooth in texture and light in tone.
The world is awash in natural stone in many beautiful colors and Surface Shop is excited to bring to you some of our absolute favorites as part of stacked stone collections aimed specifically for fireplaces. Our wide range of products cover all major areas of the neutral color range from light whites and creams, neutral earth tones with various accent colors, as well as darker charcoals, greys, and ebony blacks to make bold statements, all of which are curated with an eye towards products that can both blend into the background or stand out as the center piece of any space.

As you can imagine, you'll need to hire a professional to build you a stone fireplace. But, before you even start that process, you may start visualizing your needs and working through a series of questions that are specific to your project.
First, you'll want to determine what kind of heat source you'll be using (Gas, traditional Wood-burning, or Electric), as each source type will have different considerations both from a design standpoint and construction standpoint.
From there you'll want to determine size and style. Large rooms and homes that require significant heat output will require larger fireplaces.
Browse from our gallery to find fireplaces you like, and have those images handy during your consultation with a professional. You may even want to order samples of our products ahead of time.
Depending on whether you're remodeling a fireplace or building from scratch, pricing can vary widely from as simple as $4-6,000 for a simple update to upwards of $25,000 for a more complex new build.
There is no one-size-fits-all recommendation for which stone veneer is best for a fireplace. Typically, our clients choose based on color, texture, and format.
When sourcing for modern fireplaces, a smooth and sleek veneer will be preferred to a more irregular or dimensional cut stone.
When sourcing for rustic environments, our clients typically choose from one of our masonry products - Either Ashlar, Dry Stack, or TerraForm.
When sourcing for transitional styled environments, our clients can choose from our entire range of products.
