In today's modern masonry world great advancements have been made in the use of natural stone. Massachusetts has a rich history of New England field stone, quarry stone, full range granite from tans, pinks and classic grey granite. Building with thin stone today we can achieve in days or weeks what would of once took months. Select wall stones are cut and split into manageable building sizes.
In the past building stone walls, stone steps or stone foundations required a trip to the quarry and hand selecting the best stone for building. The stones were full ledge and field stone which meant cutting, drilling, splitting and hand dressing every stone for construction. While being a time honored traditions that we still practice today. The same look and end result can be achieved with thin stone veneer.
Not only does thin stone veneer save time in labor cost the material is available in a far greater range of colors and selections than bulk wall stone.
Local quarry's have teamed up with businesses that provide thin stone veneer to offer a truly amazing selection of natural stone for your masonry project.
