What is Thinstone?
Here at our stone-yard in Westport we cut away the face from each piece of heavy stone to make ThinStone.
This is 100% natural stone, but now with a thickness of only one inch.This can then be fixed on directly to the wall like a heavy tile.
This direct fixing method and the lower weight gives ThinStone many advantages and cost savings as against using heavy building stone with eight inch thickness.

The benefits of installing Thinstone
Thinstone for Housefronts
Stone with its natural surfaces and colour variations somehow beds your home more fully in to the surrounding landscape and gives it a sense of really belonging.
One of the great advantages of ThinStone is that is ideal for retrofitting to existing homes. Regular building stone has a thickness of eight inches and will not fit under the eaves of most roofs. Building stone will also need lintels over all windows and doors to support the weight of the stone.
Thinstone on the other hand, with a thickness of only one inch, fixes on directly like a heavy tile and fits easily under eaves and around windows without any costly and bulky support lintels being needed. Working with ThinStone simplifies your building project greatly and saves you on both cost and time. It’s light, easy to use, 100% stone and just makes good sense. Check out some of our projects below.
