Calculate Square Footage, Lineal Footage and Waste Factor
Calculate the amount of stone veneer needed for a thin veneer project with our stone veneer calculator, including your waste factor. Natural stone installation requires masonry techniques such as cutting, splitting, sorting, and trimming stones to fit the desired finished area. The amount of stone cut and/or trimmed during the installation process is referred to as the “waste factor”. The amount of waste per job is dependent on the project requirements including how tight the finished joints are desired to be. Tighter joints require more trimming which generates more waste. A higher waste factor requires more stone to be consumed.
