Create Stunning Pillars with Stone Veneer

Do you love the look and elegant style of stone pillars or columns? These classic features are a beautiful way to adorn your gate entrances and other areas around your home. Unfortunately, creating solid stone pillars can be expensive, difficult and time consuming. Another option is using thin natural stone veneer to create the look of solid stone pillars quicker and with less expense.

What is Stone Veneer?

Veneer has similar benefits of durability, beauty and easy maintenance as natural stone. Many homes and features you see with natural stone are not made with solid stone pieces. Stone veneer is a thin stone covering that can be used as siding to create the look of natural stone masonry. There are manufactured varieties, but you can purchase veneer that is made from natural stone to create the look of authentic stone without the high price tag.

Building Pillars with Stone Veneer

With natural stone veneer, you can disguise any material used to make your columns or pillars. The pillars can be made from wood or concrete, then covered with the thin stone veneer to create the appearance of a solid stone structure. Since the stone veneer is cut thin, you get the appearance of a complete stone without the weight or cost. Mortar can be used to attach the thin pieces to the outside of your pillars, creating the style you desire without the hassle or expense of building the entire structure from stone.

Stone pillars can add a stylish, classic element for porches, fence gates and as bollards for driveways. Visit your local quarry that offers thin stone veneer products to find the right stones and colors to create stunning pillars for your home.
