Irregular Stone Patterns

Of many patterns available, people often chose the natural broken look of the irregular builder cut. It is often used with rustic designs. Similar to the pattern on a giraffe’s back, the irregular builder comes in many different colors including tans, autumn blends, reds and browns. When the irregular cut is installed as a wall veneer it is normally 3-5″ thick covering approximately 35-45 feet per ton. You can compare 35-45 square feet to the size of a patio.  This irregular stone pattern is broken into shapes and sold by weight.  The face of the stone is larger than a dinner plate and but smaller than a chair cushion.
