USA: Stone Siding Manufacturers
ABOUT STONE SIDING
Stone siding is a thin layer of stone which can be applied to the surface of an exterior wall to give it the decorative look of stone. Natural stone siding is typically available in two thicknesses: Thin Veneer Stone Siding and Full Veneer Stone Siding. Thin Veneer is around one inch thick. Full Veneer Stone Siding is around four inches thick. In both cases the stone is fixed to the wall, with mortar then applied in the joints.
As cheaper alternatives to natural stone siding, there is cast stone siding, and plastic stone siding. Cast stone siding is made from concrete mixed with stone dust. Plastic siding is typically made of polyurethane cast from a stone-shaped mould and colored to resemble natural stone. Although more economical, neither cast stone siding nor plastic tone siding give the authentic appearance of natural stone siding.
