Word-of-the-Month: Lick & Stick Masonry

“Lick and stick” masonry is a thin veneer exterior finish system that is used on both building exteriors and interiors to simulate natural stone. Molded out of concrete and manufactured to look nearly identical to natural stone in color, shape, and texture, these thin veneer systems are cost-effective, lightweight, and durable, representing an excellent design option.

Stahl Construction recently broke ground on a 118-unit, four-story wood framed TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Bloomington, MN. This 67,902-square-foot hotel will feature over 10,000-square-feet of “lick and stick” masonry on the exterior of the building.
