Thin Stone Veneer Corners: 90° and 45°/135° Installation Methods

Thin Veneer is 1 inch thick, and light enough to adhere directly to any masonry surface. Once installed, it is nearly impossible to tell whether the stones are thin or full thickness. Corners are used to give the appearance of full thickness stone when wrapping around edges and corners. Matching 90° corners are available for all shapes and colors of our thin stone veneer. These corners can be used for interior and exterior applications, such as stone fireplaces, foundations, exterior siding, and columns.

45° Corners: Miter Cut vs. Weaving

A commonly asked questions is how do you handle a 45°/125° angled corner? There are 2 methods that can be used, miter cutting stones or weaving. Both are installed using flat material and are pictured below. When installing either option, be sure to alternate long and short pieces of stone on each side of the corner. That way, it will look more natural than if it was stacked.

Weaved 45° corner - round flats used

Miter cut 45° corner detail - flat rounds used
