Veneer creates natural brick appearance
Composed of concrete, fiber, and color pigments, these brick veneers have the look and feel of natural brick at a fraction of the thickness, weight, and cost of the originals. Four thin brick textures – antique, smooth, used, and wirecut – are available in 11 colors, as well as custom options that can match almost any requirement.
Sawn limestone economical to use
The Vanderbilt Classic is solid full-bed sawn veneer that offers the strong, clean limestone look at about half the price of custom cut stone. It uses traditional brick ties and is easily trimmed onsite for corner, door, and window openings. Showcasing light buff and gray shadowing, the veneer comes in large standard sizes, as well as custom versions for commercial and residential construction.
Mortar designed for veneer applications
Specifically formulated for veneer applications and tuckpointing of stone and thin brick, Veneer Stone mortar is a contractor-grade blend of portland cement, hydrated lime, and masonry sand. The mortar is designed for use in mortar joint applications, as a bonding coat to adhere stone to a wall, and as a 3/8-in. to ½-in. scratch coating.
