A product like ThinStone™ can make a world of difference for your interior and exterior stone needs. Specifically, ThinStone is Connecticut Stone's very own natural stone thin veneer; it comes in more than 80 different colors and patterns and is lighter weight making it an ideal solution for a number of different applications. Not only can we color select, but we can cut and finish in custom specifications. As the manufacturer of ThinStone, we have the ability to create custom orders with unique specifications. If you need a particular thickness or size or color blend, reach out to us.
ThinStone is useful when you are looking to add drama to a space where you didn't plan to use stone initially. Traditional building stone is 4"-6" thick and it requires a shelf/ foundation to support its weight. ThinStone allows people to use natural stone in a variety of applications without the pre-planning and expense of having to build support for the weight of traditional building veneer.
Have a brick fireplace but prefer stone? With ThinStone you can go right over the brick. Want to add drama to an interior wall? ThinStone can be added without a great deal of effort and because of its lighter weight, offers versatility and flexibility.
Another popular use is the concrete foundation of a home. Perhaps you just redid your siding but your concrete foundation is dreary and unsightly. You can easily clad it with ThinStone.
One of the main reasons people turn to our ThinStone products time and time again is due to the installation being easier, faster, and economical. Because our ThinStone is cut between 3/4" and 1-1/2" thick, it typically weighs less than 15 pounds per SF. This not only makes it easier to work with but can cut down on costs related to installation, shipping and transport. Its thin profile and light weight make it possible to use ThinStone on just about any vertical surface imaginable, so you can achieve those Pinterest-inspired designs (even on a budget).
Because ThinStone is made of natural stone, it is exceptionally durable and can withstand even some of the harshest conditions. Whether you're looking to install it on the outside of a home or commercial building-or even as part of a fireplace surround-this material will hold up to the test of time. And unlike some cultured stone materials, you can rely on ThinStone to maintain its beautiful color and appearance without fading or disintegrating over time. We've even seen clients use ThinStone products in applications like wine cellars and shower walls! ThinStone is durable enough for outdoor applications as well. This natural stone won't fade or disintegrate over time. Clad the outside of your home, build an exterior fireplace or firepit, build an exterior kitchen, make a waterfall. ThinStone is durable enough for commercial and residential use.
ThinStone is a product that you can feel great about using! That's because it is engineered to make use of natural stone sustainably with little-to-no waste involved. Plus, because of how lightweight this product is, there is less waste involved with packaging and transporting it. This is a great product to recommend to clients who are trying to be as sustainable and environmentally conscious as possible with their next project.
Our ability to create custom stone blends is another feature that really makes ThinStone stand out from other stone veneers and similar products on the market. If you've been approached with an inspiration photo from a client and are having trouble finding a stone that matches what you see in the picture, we've got you covered. If we can't match your client's inspiration photo with one of our existing 80+ ThinStone colors and patterns, we'd be happy to create a one-of-a-kind blend to achieve ideal results.
