- Finishes:Split face surfaces are created when the stone is split manually, and these surfaces are typically left in their natural state. However, a polished finish can bring out the stone’s inherent beauty and earthy tones.Tumbled Stones are placed in a solution of sand, water, and mild acid, creating an aged, old-world appearance that is full of warmth, depth, and variation, making it an ideal choice for creating a unique atmosphere in any room.Sandblasted finishes are achieved by subjecting the stone to a high-pressure blast of water and siliceous sand using an air pistol. This creates a somewhat rough finish with a fine, textured appearance that strongly resembles a beach that has been combed.Edges:Choosing the best edge profile for your personal design preferences and aesthetic can help maximize your design and give your surface the finishing touches it needs.Available Edge Profiles:
- Flat edge
- Demi bullnose edge

Mica stone Uses:
- Installation process:
- Layering and Getting the Scratch Coat Ready
- Make the surface ready. Stone veneer can be applied to any masonry surface, including concrete, existing brick, or cinder block foundations.
- If you’re doing an external application, use a moisture vapor barrier. Moisture vapor barriers are typically equipped with a self-sealing membrane. Peel back the outer layer of the membrane to reveal the sticky backside, then attach it to your surface.
- After you’ve installed your water vapor barrier, add an 18-gauge metal lath barrier. Nails should be 1 1/2 to 2 inches (3.81 cm to 5.08 cm) long and spaced at 6-inch (15.24 cm) intervals.
- Make a scratch coat out of mortar. Mix 2 or 3 parts washed sand with 1 part cement and add water to form mortar. Cover the whole surface of the lath with this mixture, about 1/2 to 3/4 inch (1.27 cm to 1.905 cm) thick, with a trowel. The scratch coat should not show through the lath.
- Scrape horizontal grooves into the scratch coat before it dries. Use a metal scraper or a scrap piece of lath material to do this. Allow the scratch coat to cure or set up.
2. Installing the Stone
- Mix the mortar in the same proportions as the scratch coat. Mix for at least 5 minutes, or until the consistency of mashed potatoes is obtained. If your mortar becomes too wet, it will lose strength. If your mortar is too dry, it will seize up too quickly.
- Mix the mortar in the same proportions as you did the scratch coat. Mix for at least 5 minutes, or until the consistency is similar to mashed potatoes. If your mortar becomes too moist, it will lose its strength. If your mortar becomes too dry, it will seize up too quickly.
- Trim the stones to shape with a chipping hammer, trowel edge, or other rough instrument. The stones themselves should be quite simple to form.
- Wash the stones thoroughly to remove any dirt, sand, or other loose particles. Grout sticks significantly better to freshly cleaned surfaces.
- Dry the stones to ensure that the surfaces are wet. If necessary, softly damp the stone with a masonry brush, but do not saturate it. This prevents the stones from wicking moisture away from the mortar, allowing it to firm up with a naturally stronger bond.
- Back butter the mortar onto each stone piece one at a time. Back buttered mortar should be about 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) thick. If some mortar gets on the stone’s face, wipe it away with a moist towel before it dries.
- Begin putting the stones in the bottom corners. Any trimmed edges should be turned immediately up or down, away from the main point. Press the stones into the mortar, slightly twisting them to squeeze out excess and tighten the bond. Remove any extra mortar that has been pressed beyond the finished joint or onto the stone’s surface with a trowel, joint tool, or brush.
- To get the most pleasing result, keep the joints uniform. The ideal length for your joints is generally between 2.5 and 7.5 cm (1 to 3 inches).
- Till the wall is finished, keep back buttering and laying stone. Take periodic breaks, and occasionally step back to look over your work. Consider buying cornerstone pieces if you are veneering more than one face of a wall. They are produced by the majority of stone veneer producers, and they lend the project a simple naturalness.
4. Finishing the Process
- When all the stones have been set, use a grout bag to fill the joints. Using a grout bag yields the best results. Cover any trimmed edges at this stage. As the mortar stiffens, use a striking instrument to get the joints to the required depth.
- Using a whisk broom and simple water, remove any extra debris. Any mortar that gets on the stone’s face should be removed right away because it becomes impossible to remove mortar after 24 hours.
- Prior to the mortar setting completely, wipe the mortared joints with a paintbrush. Do this especially if working inside because stone inside wants to look more polished.
- Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations when applying a sealant. Stone that has been sealed will be simpler to keep and clean, and some sealers will repel stains. To enhance the benefits, periodically reapply the sealer.
