Full Size Veneer Building Stone

We define Full Size Veneer Building Stone as any suitable stone that is at least 3 inches thick or thicker. All full size veneer stone needs a foundation shelf (a ledge - most often concrete - that is part of the foundation or in some cases poured as a separate section of concrete that is tied to the foundation) to support the weight of the stone. The stone cannot be held up by vertical building walls - it is too heavy. Wicki Stone quarries and then splits or shapes our own stone into a unique collection of building stone. We currently strive to stock 6 full size building stone choices and we do carry several additional types of full size stone from other sources that can be quickly special ordered.

Wicki Stone stocks 6 types of full size veneer building stone in our 10 acre, Great Meadows (Warren County) New Jersey stone yard. We process most of the full size veneer at our yard - which entails turning raw stone into finished full size veneer. This is most often done by splitting the stone in our on-site guillotine stone splitter. The splitting process can not only square off the edges of the stone , it opens up the center of the stone were the colors can be even richer than the outside color.

We strive to have all 6 full size veneer stone products in stock for immediate pick-up. Larger orders may require more time to fill, but we have a substantial inventory of this full size veneer stone in stock.

Full size veneer requires a foundation shelf for the stone to sit on. This foundation shelf bears the weight of the wall, not the siding of the structure.

Many of these homes are 100 or even 200+ years old, and the stone gives the house incredible character.

Full size veneer stone is for the ages, and Wicki Stone has a great selection of in stock full size veneer building stone.

What Is A Foundation Shelf?

A Foundation Shelf For Full Size Veneer Stone

A Foundation Shelf is a bump out in the foundation of a structure to hold full size veneer stone. Our full size veneer stone can be up to 8" deep, and the shelf depth should reflect the particular stone being bought. An 8" deep stone should have a 8+ inch deep foundation shelf. The foundation carries the weight of the stone, not the structure's walls. Foundation shelves can be added to an existing home by qualified contractors or they can be part of the initial foundation pouring.
