Available to Match All Colors and ShapesThin Veneer is 1 inch thick, and light enough to adhere directly to any masonry surface. Once installed, it is nearly impossible to tell whether the stones are thin or full thickness. Corners are used to give the appearance of full thickness stone when wrapping around edges and corners. Matching 90° corners are available for all shapes and colors of our thin stone veneer. These corners can be used for interior and exterior applications, such as stone fireplaces, foundations, exterior siding, and columns.

45° Corners: Miter Cut vs. Weaving
A commonly asked questions is how do you handle a 45°/125° angled corner? There are 2 methods that can be used, miter cutting stones or weaving. Both are installed using flat material and are pictured below. When installing either option, be sure to alternate long and short pieces of stone on each side of the corner. That way, it will look more natural than if it was stacked.
Alternative Uses for Thin Veneer Corners
Each of the STONEYARD® Natural Thin Stone Veneer product options has a matching corner to wrap around edges and give the appearance that it is a full thickness stone. These 90° cut pieces of stone are not just for wrapping around corners however. They have many uses and applications that will help to make your project look authentic. Below are a few examples of the different ways corner pieces can be used.
Alternative: Weaving a 90° Corner
Without the use of pre-cut corners the masonry installer will “weave” flat pieces of veneer during transition from one surface to the next as the following pictures depict.
