Attaching stone veneer to preformed concrete walls or foundations

Uploaded by MRockTV on 09.04.2010

Let's look at the wall preparation for attaching stone veneer to a preformed concrete wall or foundation.
Apply the bonding agent
directly to the preformed wall.
The preformed walls are smooth
and a bonding agent helps the mortar adhere to the surface.
The bonding agent must be applied according to the product specifications before
the stone is applied.
Concrete blocks
are more porous
and do not require a bonding agent
or a metal lathe unless it is painted.
Do not use a release agent.
This can and often does cause the rock to have difficulty
adhering to the concrete.
