Profile Installation

Our stone veneer isn’t just meant to look great — we also want it to provide a user-friendly experience from start to finish. This means engineering our manufactured stone products so they are easy to work with and install.

Installation on Multiple Substrates

Our manufactured stone profiles are designed to be mounted on three major substrates: wood, metal paneling, and even existing masonry. For sheathed or open wood frames, the surface is covered with water resistant barriers and either an 18-gauge woven wire mesh (sheathed) or rib metal lath (open). A scratch coat mortar is placed on this layer, allowing for easy stone veneer installation.

For pre-existing masonry, the walls must be sandblasted clean until water cannot bead on the surface. After this, the scratch coat and veneer are applied. When working with metal panels, the lath is attached using corrosion-resistant screws. Metal panels must meet minimum thickness and galvanization requirements.

Grout Coloring Options

Grout plays a big role in the final appearance of a stone veneer. Our profiles work well with a wide range of colors, textures, and styles. Monochromatic grout that matches the profile color will give a more modern appearance, while other color combinations can further accent the individual stones.
