There are two keys to creating beautiful, long-lasting stone veneer applications: start with quality stone veneer products and employ proper stone installation techniques. As one of an elite group of top tier stone veneer manufacturers, ProVia's stone products meet the industry's toughest standards for manufactured stone quality and come with the industry’s only lifetime limited warranty.
Starting your project with ProVia's stone is the first step, following proper stone veneer installation guidelines is the next. As a company dedicated to a set of Core Values centered on “caring for details in ways others won’t.” ProVia has created two user friendly installation tools, the first one is a video series on "How to Install Stone Veneer" and we also offer a downloadable and printable Stone Installation Guide, that contains only the essential information to ensure proper installation. ProVia’s focus is to provide contractors and homeowners with the best products, tools and knowledge to complete your Provia stone installation with comfort and confidence, leading to years of value and rewarding enjoyment.
The videos and installation guide are intended as companions to the Masonry Veneer Manufacturers Association’s official printed installation instructions.
