NE Square and Rectangular Building Veneer

Do you like the look of uniform cut stone for your home or place of business? If so then you are going to love my square and rectangular stone veneer.

Square and rectangular stone veneer starts off as the same gathered stone that I use to make my other veneer products. I collect this stone from farms and fields throughout New England and bring it to my facility in Littleton, MA. It is then sorted into the different types of stone products that I provide to you everyday. Square and rectangular veneer requires one additional step which is cutting the stone into roughly square and rectangular pieces in my stone splitter. This saves the mason a lot of time cutting and shaping the stone. The mason only needs to trim the material and install it to create your unique stone project.

Each piece of the square and rectangular veneer is different. There are a broad range of sizes, textures and colors that add to the allure of the stone. Take a look at the picture above and you can see the differences in each piece. This project shows the weathered face of the stone, concealing the full palette of colors. If you prefer more of a range of color, then build the structure with the split face exposed. This look will give you colors including white, beige, brown, green, gray and black. Many pieces have a combination of colors due to the minerals included in the formation of this quartzitic stone.

This stone is a great choice for your veneer project because it is a very dense, durable and similar to granite in strength. The difference between granite and fieldstone is that the fieldstone weighs 15-20% less than granite. Talk to your mason about this and see his eyes light up when he finds out he needs to handle 20% less weight and still produce the same amount of work in a day. He will be happy and you are going to love what he creates for you.
