Manufactured Stone Veneers come in variety of sizes, shapes, and finishes.  Manufactured veneers are often lighter than comparable natural veneers and therefore often require less effort to install.  They are often less expensive to purchase and install since they are lighter, not subject to local availability, and easier to install.  They offer savings in the form of higher production rates with less waste over traditional natural stone.
