Pacific Ashlar cut stone – which has a linear profile and is cut on the top and bottom edges – works well with angular modern and contemporary architectural styles. Our Pacific Ashlar Veneer is made from a naturally elegant blue/grey slate, punctuated with occasional white quartz veins. Available in a variety of face heights (2", 3", 4", 6", 8", 10" and 12", and custom sizes), the stones themselves range from 6 inches to 24 inches in length. Pacific Ashlar Veneer is our most modern profile stone and can be installed virtually anywhere for a touch of natural beauty. Use it on the facade of a low-slung modern or contemporary style home to accentuate the linear lines of flat top roof construction. This veneer is especially beautiful against wood trim, or framed by landscaping at the front of a house in the manner of Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architecture. It can also be used as an accent or on walkways and retaining walls to create a striking entrance way for a front door.
