Stone Veneer NZ is an alternative to Traditional Stone Masonry and is rapidly increasing in popularity across New Zealand

Stone Veneer is seen as a Lighter Weight more Versatile Building Product then Conventional Natural Stone and Traditional Stone Masonry in New Zealand.

Stone Cladding is a more suitable solution for today’s modern building methods (i.e Timber, Lightweight Steel Framing and Concrete Tilt Panels) due to it’s lighter weight composition and ease of installation.

Using Stone Cladding is a much quicker and cost effective alternative to Traditional Stone Masonry, and can be added to any existing or new architectural designs, while adding a Distinctive Cultured and Elegant curb appeal to turn heads for years to come.

The Installation of our Modular Stone Veneer itself is completely straight forward, meaning most anyone is capable of installing our product, however we do offer our New Zealand Network of Professional Installers to complete your required work.
