For Albuquerque construction projects that require traditional, high-end stonework, our full veneer building stone is your ideal choice. Stonemasons love the material’s thickness which lends itself to exceptional hand-tooling, pillowing, and rock-facing.

A Popular Choice for Home Construction

Often referred to as 4-inch veneer, the full bed stone veneer has long been a favorite option for homeowners who, whether for financial or practical reasons, cannot complete a full stone construction. If you’re looking to enhance your Albuquerque home’s appearance, these beautiful veneers offer a multitude of design possibilities for creating a magnificent façade or stone wall that will last a lifetime.

Larger in size and heavier than thin stone veneers, it’s the detailed texturing and visual intrigue that sets full stone veneers apart from other building materials. And unlike thin veneers, they can be more easily shaped and textured without cracking.

Different building stones have different densities; for example, granite has a higher density than a sandstone. This is important to know because full veneer building stone must be used in projects where the thickness, weight, and size can be supported. For an exterior stone wall, of course, that may not be an issue. But in many cases, such as interior fireplaces and exterior walls, you will likely need to strengthen the floor or install a proper footing or shelf. Your architect and a professional stone mason can evaluate your specific project and help you pick the right veneer.

Building Stone Patterns

In addition to the wide range of different types of materials, there are many patterns you can create with building stone. Some of the most popular cut patterns include roughly square + rectangle, mosaic, random ashlar, and strip ledge stone. Whether your sense of style is traditional or contemporary, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for.
