If you're looking for a way to bring the natural beauty of stone into your home, here's how to save a lot of time, money and effort. Use thin stone veneer. This versatile material is very easy to install.

The ease of installation makes for very quick decorating and building projects. And you will be pleasantly surprised at the money you'll save compared to using traditional materials.

Let's take a closer look at the benefits you'll gain by using thin stone veneer.

Exactly what is "thin" stone veneer? Specifically, thin stone veneer ranges from about three-fourths of an inch up to two inches thick. Compare that to "full-dimension" stone veneer which starts at two inches and goes up from there. The smaller size and lower weight means that thin stone veneer goes up much easier than thicker varieties. There are also specific situations, like the close spaces around a fireplace, in which thin stone veneer is the only option. Of course, anytime that installation is easier, you're going to save time.

Thin stone veneer installation can be accomplished in much less time compared to full dimension veneer. Most mason contractors estimate that installation can be accomplished in half the time.

Or, in other words, your thin stone veneer project will be completed twice as fast. This time savings could mean a lot if you have a limited amount of time to supervise contracting work. It also means that there will be less disruption of your schedule while work is going on.

You should know what's coming next. If installation is easier and faster, you're going to save money. That's guaranteed.

Thin stone veneer doesn't need costly support stones. The job can be accomplished in fewer days and with less labor. You can either pocket the money you save, or put up even more thin stone veneer. It's your choice.

So now you have the complete scoop on thin stone veneer. It goes up easy, it goes up quick and it goes up cheap. You'll be able to achieve the exact look you want with a minimum of fuss.

The project time will be much shorter. And you will have money left over at the end. Maybe you could use that money to throw a party for your friends and show off your home's charming new look.
