The price of artificial rock, manufactured stone or brick veneer
Artificial stone products can help you with your budget while building or finishing walls. Frequently the cost of a complete installation is only 50% – 60% percent that of a similar installation done with natural stone or brick. The current retail cost of many of the artificial stone products is about $3-5 per square foot. Labor, mortar, surface prep and other costs may add an additional $4 – 8 per square foot depending upon your location and labor costs.
