Surface Shop's Guide to Dry Stacked Ledgestone

Dry Stack Stone Veneer is a traditional natural stone cladding product that Surface Shop is excited to offer.  This product comes as loose format material that is generally cut on the back to lay flat up against the wall and many of the products then also have rough cut shapes and sizes as part of the product mix.  

This selective cutting is all with the design intent to create a product that comes in a loose format but can be laid into a tight fitting, dry stack pattern.  

The dry stacked look is highly coveted among natural stone purists as it is seen by many as the most technically advanced and beautiful look for loose stone to be installed in.


Similar to highly calibrated marble tiles with minimal grout lines, the dry stack technique minimizes space between stones, highlighting their natural beauty and the superior skill in craftsmanship that is required to create it over a mortar jointed installation.

Traditionally, skilled on-site labor is required, with stone masons meticulously cutting, tooling, and fitting stones into place.

Surface Shop’s Dry Stack Stone Veneers offer exotic materials with sawn-cut backs and regular sized pieces to assist for a quicker dry stack installation, streamlining the process.

Dry Stack Stone Cladding Essentials

Our dry stack collection is comprised of the following types of stone: Granite, Limestone, Sedimentary Rock, Quartzite, and Slate. This highly curated, custom range of products provides a unique and current perspective on natural stone cladding. Each product is characterized as split on the face and sawn on the back. This allows for both ease of application on your substrate and an organic outward face. Secondly, our dry stack stone range comes with exceptional L-shaped corners to ensure that your corner details are perfect every time.

Mortar vs Dry-Stacked

While Surface Shop’s dry stacked stone veneer impresses with its technical merits, what truly sets it apart are the stunning color blends sourced from across the globe. Each blend offers varying shapes, sizes, and colors, ensuring diverse aesthetic possibilities.

A tight masonry dry-lay will offer a contemporary style while a mortar joint can offer a more transitional appearance. Each have their place in the market.

The natural stone itself showcases varying textures, from relatively smooth flat faces to a rugged textured finishes with linear striations, all of which are incredibly unique and exclusive to our range.

From sleek modern to traditional aesthetics, Surface Shop provides the perfect dry stacked stone veneer to elevate your project’s visual appeal.

Versatility & Suitability

The scale of dry stack stone veneer lends itself best to exterior and large scale interior installations with residential and commercial facades, garden and retaining walls, and large fireplaces being some of the most common applications of the product.
