Adhered stone veneer by far the superior choice when one is deciding between adhered stone veneer and cast stone. Yet, there is often some misunderstanding between the two. Here are a few differences between them to show that adhered stone veneer is by far the best material for home improvement. It really comes down to the taste and budget of the homeowner. Both can come in any number of shapes, sizes and/or colors, but adhered stone veneer has the bonus of being much easier to remove when one wants to alter the overall look of a room. Both can be used in any interior decorating project imaginable with a great warranty. In respect to the cast products, it is normally considered to be “up for good” once it’s in place.
Adhered stone veneer:
2) Held in place using something like type S mortar.
3) Doesn’t add to the load-bearing ability of the existing wall.
4) Not as permanent as the alternative in the event the homeowner wants to change the room’s theme.
5) Extremely versatile.
6) Works great on practically any exterior wall.
7) It can be cut or pieced together as the job goes for the best result, allowing more option as the job goes on where cast stone cannot.
1) Heavier in materials.
2) Does add the load-bearing ability of the existing wall.
3) It is a permanent addition to the wall typically enhanced by something like brickwork.
4) It is not easy to remove.
5) Requires more to affix it to the wall.
6) Weighs about the same as limestone.
7) Usually cut the specified design discussed between the dealer and homeowner.
Both of these products are great depending on what a homeowner wants. Adhered stone veneer is great because it’s much easier to install and can usually be done by the homeowner.
