TIPS TO MAKE BRICK AND STONE INSTALLATION EASIER

Aside from supplying what we consider the most cost efficient and easy to install faux stone we also want our customers to be completely happy with their purchase and the installation process.

We’ll show you some tips and tricks to make your house renovation a much more enjoyable process.

Substrate
One question we get often concerns the substrate for creating a faux stone wall on a house façade.

Many modern constructions use a house wraps that helps keep moisture out and insulate the home from heat and cold. Although this wrap is a great advantage in many aspects, it can also create a challenge to those who try to install faux stone, vinyl siding or gluing any kind of material.

In most cases the adhesive that you use in the back of stone panels will not really do much to hold the panel in place. This is not a problem since you can use a few more screws to secure the panels.

One of the great features of faux brick and stone panels is the texture. Using the crevices of the stone and the grout lines you may easily drive screw through the panel without have to predrill the product. Once the screws are in place you may easily cover the head with a color-matching caulking or use our touch-up kit to paint over it.

Because of the fact that you cannot use the adhesive in the back we suggest to glue the panels well where they interlock and overlap with each other.
