Adhered masonry veneer is incredibly lightweight but offers the look and feel of real stone or aggregate. It can be used on walls to create the look of cement, brick, or any other type of stone surface. Homeowners who are trying to restore an outdoor area or make repairs may find it is too costly, or they just don’t have the time to dedicate to redoing an entire area. Applying a few sections of adhered masonry veneer will help cover and protect the problem area until the resources are available to complete a full renovation or restoration. Veneers can also be used to create a new look or update an area’s decor.
