Kensley Stone Thin

A new product to Oldcastle’s Artisan Masonry Stone Veneers line, which is part of the newly launched Echelon brand, Kensley Stone Thin Veneer is available in three color options that may be field blended to provide six total color options and is designed specifically to combine the timeless aesthetics of natural limestone with quick and easy installation. Echelon’s Kensley Stone veneer boasts a traditional ashlar pattern with a 3/8” mortar joint to blend upscale looks with minimal installation time and costs. Easy to clean and resistant to salt, water, and thaw damage, each stone also offers superior compressive strength compared to typical adhered veneers, while avoiding unwanted flanges on the back of the stone. Intended for non-bearing applications, the lightweight veneers require no footings.
