About Lamina® Stone

Lamina® Stone masonry lays in the same plane as conventional veneer masonry — you don’t have to build a transition, it is the transition. Lamina Stone veneers emulate a stacked stone appearance and make a bold statement. This multi-length stone offers a lot of benefits due to its unique installation and design. The original texture and color choices bring out the best in every project. Artisan Masonry Lamina Stone may be used on the entire façade or just to accentuate certain architectural elements such as wall sections or skirting.
