Stone veneer siding offers a beautiful, unique, and eye-catching look that other siding materials simply can’t. If you’re considering stone veneer siding, you have to options: natural or synthetic. As the name suggest, natural veneers are made from naturally occurring rocks and have simply been cut thin to make them easier and more affordable to use as siding. Synthetic veneers are made of cement, aggregate, and pigments, which are placed in a mold to cast the shape of natural stone.
