There is a big question out there that goes something like this: “Why use natural stone if imitation looks just as good?” I can agree only when considering the difference in total cost to install. Fake stone is much more economical to install, not to mention faster, than full dimension stone. However, with natural stone you never have to worry about weathering, broken edges or warranties. With natural stone weathering only adds to the beauty, broken edges reveal more stone and warranties on thousand year old materials seem trivial.
As the countless choices are considered in stone applications, it is my opinion, natural stone is the only option. There is no comparison to natural stone in beauty and longevity. For many, this is no revelation but there is still the prohibitive issue of cost. Tennessee Stone Harvesting is providing the solution to this problem.
Tennessee Stone Harvesting brings the best of natural stone and fake stone together with our 100% natural Thinstone veneer. We start with natural stone then cut it to the appropriate thickness which, in turn, significantly reduces its weight. This translates into an application process identical to fake stone. So, you can now have natural stone for a comparable price to that of fake stone. This does not in any way diminish the appeal of natural stone but simply increase the affordability. Our innovative process increases the usable product from each stone and therefore reduces the material and application costs.
With this is mind, maybe the question changes to: “Why would you NOT use natural stone?”

This innovative approach to interior and exterior stone veneer and siding materials provides a more efficient installation process and virtually eliminates maintenance. What Tennessee Stone Harvesting offers is a process that is truly unique, where no design is ever replicated, giving you a home that is a work of art to call your own.
