Adhered Thin Stone Veneer
Use this free downloadable CSI 3 part specification to specify Natural stone veneer for interior and exterior use, adhered by mortar to a solid substrate.
This guide specification section has been prepared by Montana Rockworks for use in the preparation of a project specification section covering adhered thin natural stone veneer for exterior or interior locations. Thin stone veneer is placed over a solid substrate and is set in mortar.
The following guidelines should be followed when designing adhered thin stone veneer:
– Over gypsum board, paneling, plywood, other rigid wood-related sheathing, or rigid insulation: Install a weather-resistive barrier complying with building code requirements, expanded metal lath, and mortar scratch coat.
– Over unpainted, untreated, unsealed concrete, brick, block, or other masonry: Stone can be applied directly to a clean surface.
– Over painted, treated, or sealed concrete, brick, block, or other masonry: Clean surfaces back to the original surface by sandblasting, water blasting, acid etching, or wire brushing, or apply metal lath and mortar scratch coat.
