The reign of “imitation stone” is over. Natural thin stone veneer not only performs better, but it looks better, too, with no repeated patterns and a completely organic and natural feel to your building or other project.
Starting with natural quarried stone, each piece is sawn thin, leaving the look of natural stone without the added weight. Once installed, it’s indistinguishable from full-thickness stone. Only you will know it’s a thin stone veneer!
NTV looks just as good as full veneer, but because it’s sawn to three-quarters of an inch to one and one-quarter inches – as compared to three to five inches – it’s lighter-weight and easier to handle.
Natural thin stone veneer can be installed in half the time as full veneer, often without a brick or stone ledge or foundation.
It also can be custom cut and trimmed to meet your exact specifications, with corner pieces at any angle, including obtuse, acute, or right angles.
Thin stone or brick veneers are adhered using a specialty mortar adhesive and are ideal for applications including façades, fireplaces, chimneys, and freestanding landscaping walls. Ideal for remodeling projects and zero clearance fireplaces, NTV gives you serious advantages.

To see what natural thin stone veneer from Sturgis Materials looks like as a building façade, visit Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, Kansas. The exterior is finished with Crystal Ridge thin stone veneer, and provides a contrast to the brick and smooth finishes on the remainder of the façade.
NTV installs the same way as manufactured stone. It is suitable for facing concrete block or poured concrete and can be applied to wooden structures.
For best results, we recommend professional installation. Homeowners may consider hiring a mason with experience in installing stone veneers.
