How to Upgrade Your Fireplace with Manufactured Thin Stone Veneer
Cozy, homey and heart-warming – nothing beats the feeling of gathering around the hearth with loved ones during the cold winter months. Just picture it: you and your favourite people, with glasses of pinot noir (or mugs of hot cocoa) in hand, enjoying a lively board game or laughing as you share stories and recount the adventures of the day. It just might make winter your new favourite season.
A fireplace is a central feature of a home, and if you have one in your living or family room, it’s time to make the most of it! If you have a fireplace that isn’t getting much use, it could be in need of an upgrade. Having a beautiful fireplace that you love will inspire you to get the most enjoyment from it.

Discover the benefits of manufactured thin stone veneer
You want a beautiful fireplace, but you don’t want to spend a fortune. That’s where manufactured stone comes in. Our stone veneer is designed to mimic the look of natural stone, and it offers all of the warmth and style of natural stone at a more affordable price. StoneRox is fully Canadian-made, which also makes it more cost-effective as it cuts down on transportation and manufacturing costs.
Stone veneer is lightweight, so you won’t have to reinforce your existing fireplace or floor, and it’s completely safe to use on both wood and gas fireplaces as it’s a concrete product that’s non-combustible and non-flammable with zero flame spread. It’s also easy to install, so it’s a great DIY project. We also have thin clay brick veneer available for a different look. And if you’re looking for a natural stone, we can also assist with helping you find cost-effective natural stone panels.
