No matter how big or small your project might be, you should expect high-quality results when using our stone veneer. Regardless of which of our manufactured stone products you choose, you can expect a great-looking outcome that will stand the test of time.
Understanding the Installation Process
The installation of manufactured stone — often referred to as an AMSV system — utilizes several additional materials to ensure a quality outcome. For example, corrosion resistant fasteners are used to attach the stone veneer to the “backup,” or underlying wall. A mesh material known as lath is used in conjunction with mortar to ensure a proper bond between the veneer and other masonry, while flashing and water resistive barriers help keep water from getting behind the veneer.
These are only a few of the additional materials used to complete a stone veneer installation. Working with professional installers ensures that everything will be used in a way that ensures lasting durability.
Hiring the Right Team
Stone veneer installers should always adhere to the guidelines listed by the Masonry Veneer Manufacturers Association. These guidelines cover recommendations for a wide variety of building situations, from installations over wood framing or a foundation wall to dealing with dryer vent penetrations.
The right team will provide exceptional attention to detail throughout the process, ensuring that you receive high-quality workmanship that adheres to building code and project site requirements.
Ask Your Questions
If you have questions or concerns about the stone veneer installation process, feel free to ask potential installers about their work. This way, you can move forward with confidence as you begin your project.
