Stone facade veneer advice

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of having the front facade of the lower floor of a proposed house (~24m2) as a stone facade veneer affixed onto blockwork.

 

Has anyone used it and any potential issues / advice?

I used a stone veneer on mine.  It's more like tiling than stone work.  You mix enough adhesive up to build what you think you can do in 30 mins then put it on and tile away.  

You can build it dry with no joints or joints.  That's up to you. 

YouTube has plenty of videos to show you how you go about it.

The rep for our stone said to start from the corners and work your way towards the centre.

any particular issues around windows and doors, e.g setting out and water ingress?

Setting out will depend on how random your stone sizes are.  

For Windows and doors mine came with L shaped pieces for these areas.  

The tile adhesive is similar to what you would use for swimming pools so it will not let any water through.  Mine was stuck onto a block wall so no chance of water getting through to the inside with a cavity filled with insulation. 

These are the guys I got mine from.
