Natural Stone. As Genuine As You.
So you ask yourself why should I use Halquist Thinstone? Well for starters, we use real building stone and saw the fronts off of the stone, which means the color will not fade after a few years like artificial stone. Second, as you can see by viewing our pictures, you can't tell the difference once the stone is installed whether it's 5-inches thick or 1 1/2 inches thick. Third, our stone comes in a huge variety of colors, textures and combinations. Finally, Halquist Thinstone™ is much easier to install than regular building stone and it can be applied to almost any surface.
Advantages of Thinstone
COST - Light in weight, which is faster and quicker to install - allowing mason contractors to install more square footage per day
CONSTRUCTION - Whether the installation is a new structure or part of a remodeling project, our thin cut natural stone is the ideal material when weight or space limitations are a problem. Because it requires no footings and has a thin profile, it is an excellent facing for unitized zero-clearance fireplaces. It is installed in the same way as manufactured stone, yet it gives the look of real stone because it is real stone!! In most cases, it costs less than manufactured stone products.
APPEARANCE - It's all about curb appeal. Besides landscaping, the use of natural materials is one of the most desirable features of the exterior of the home. Mother nature created it. Halquist Stone perfected it. Thinstone™ is comparable in weight, price and installation to artificial "cultured" stone. With that being said, Halquist Stone is natural choice for your next project.
This product is quarried from our Wisconsin, Michigan and Arizona pits. Unlike manufactured or “fake stone”, Thinstone™ is more durable; thus it resists chipping and scratching. If it does chip, the inner stone contains the same color, pattern and texture as the surface. Now try doing that with the fake stuff!
