Estimating Materials

Install Corners First

Multiply height x width of the area to be covered, subtracting openings such as doors and windows. This is the total surface area for which you will need stone. To estimate corner stones, measure the vertical external corners, the window and door jambs that will require corner stone. Note it is advisable to allow some extra to allow for cutting and trimming.

Start at the corners and work toward the centre of the wall. Be sure to alternate long and short returns on corner pieces. Take a clean stone and slightly dampen the back, this will remove any dirt and will prevent moisture loss from mortar. Apply a coat of mortar approx 10mm to the entire back of the flats and corners. Press the stone onto the wall rotating slightly to force some of the mortar to squeeze out slightly. Any mortar forced out should be removed before the mortar is allowed to set. Cut and trim the stones if you need particular size stones to fill the gaps.

Preparation of the Surface For New Block Surfaces, no surface preparation is required although it would be advisable to apply scratch coat with a water sealer for chimney stacks to minimise water penetration. The existing plastered or dashed surface must be cleaned back to its original surface by sandblasting, water blasting, acid etching or wire brushing, or have metal lath attached using corrosive resistant concrete nails with a scratch coat applied over the metal lath. For any uneven or rough surface, it is recommended to scratch coat to level the surface.

Layout the Stone Before you apply any of the stone, start by laying out a couple of boxes in front of your project. This will give you a sense for the variety of shapes and colours you’ll be working with. Arrange the pieces so they fit and look nice next to each other and try to avoid clumping colours together all in one area.

Fitting Stones & Grouting Joints Fill all the gaps between the stones with grout mortar and/or sand cement/lime to slightly above the desired finish depth. The grout will tighten and seal up the area around the stone. Let the grout dry until it is firm but not solid. You want to be able to push on it without leaving fingerprints, but don’t let the grout dry too much or it will be very difficult to strike. Striking the grout gives your project a finished look. Strike the grout to achieve the desired look. Use your striking stick to scrape along the joints until the grout has a clean, even look to it.

Sweeping the Stone Finally, use your medium bristled brush to sweep the dust off the stone.
