A Rock and a Hard Place: Real vs. Faux Stone

Stone is a popular choice for indoor and outdoor living improvements, but you need to know the difference between real and faux stone. The difference between real stone and faux stone is simple: real stone is quarried with nothing else added, while a faux or veneer stone is artificial, baked from cement, aggregates and iron oxides to give it that stone feel. Using either for your home improvement project comes with its advantages and disadvantages.
