If you are looking for a stone veneer that adds a touch of tradition and modernity to your home, then Ashlar is the style for you! Ashlar stone veneers are smooth-faced, rectangular blocks carved to a consistent size and installed in an organized pattern.


Brick is one of the oldest building materials and conveys a feeling of warmth and tradition. It is very common to see brick in a loft style home, but throughout the years brick has remained popular when used in a more traditional way, such as the residential exterior.


Throughout the history of homebuilding, Fieldstones have remained the handiest and most commonly used of all building materials. Wherever this surface appears ­ indoors, outdoors, in tailored architecture or on a log home in the woods-it provides a powerful, rugged character no other material can match.


Ledgestone is one of the most popular styles in modern stone veneer installations. Ledgestone is both rugged and precise, generally long and rectangular, small in scale, and low relief.


The Linear stone veneers look very clean and organized. They are arranged in straight lines and portray a sense of uniformity. However, these stones are typically not placed in a pattern, rather they are assembled randomly, which adds to its individuality.

Random Ashlar

Although similar in style to Ashlar, Random Ashlar provides a different look and feel. This style is versatile enough to look old fashioned or modern, depending on how it is applied.


The Rounded style is just as it sounds, with its rounded surfaces and medium ­scale texture, it convincingly reproduces the look of stone worn smooth in a rippling stream. These stone veneers lend a sense of comfort and timelessness that can usually be found in cabin-like homes.


Rubble is a style that can add a little edge and ultimately provides a unique look and adds an immense amount of character! This rugged, informal style is purposely irregular and works well both indoors and out.
