Fair Faced Veneer / Cladding

Fair faced limestone veneer is a new Ōamaru Stone product, designed to save our clients time onsite once delivered. Each block is put through a finishing saw at our quarry, which dresses the surface and joggles* each end (*creates joints to prevent blocks from sliding). The smoother fair faced surface weathers well, is highly durable and easy to maintain.
