True stone masonry is built on a foundation, with each layer supported by the layers beneath it. In the case of thin stone, every unit is supported by the backing wall to which it is attached, sometimes using a track system fastened to the wall, sometimes with units adhered more directly to the wall. When using thin stone for exteriors, great care should be taken to use a system engineered and installed to manage moisture penetration and drainage, as well as to ensure that all units are securely and permanently in place. Properly installed thin veneer can be used for either interior or exterior applications. Kitchen walls and backsplashes can be made dramatic using thin stone veneers, and fireplace surrounds can be made spectacular.
