Installation Step 1 - Preparing Surface
Native Stone can be easily applied to any structurally sound surface without the use of wall ties, footings, sills or special foundations. Install the stone directly to clean (unsealed, unpainted or untreated) brick, block, concrete or other masonry surfaces. On wood surfaces, a 2.5 gauge metal lath must be installed prior to install of Native Stone. Nail the lath six inches on center hitting studs whenever possible using 1 1/2” electroplated galvanized roofing nails. Sections of mesh should be horizontally lapped bottom over top a minimum of 1 inch with a similar lap at end joints. Always attach lath right side up with small cups pointing upward. This will allow good mortar encasement and eliminate the tendency for stones to slide during mortar set up period.
A weather resistant barrier such as waterproof building paper or asphalt felt should be applied to wood sheathing on exterior applications prior to lath. We also recommend a 10mm airspace between the stone veneer cladding and the sheathing membrane.
This can be achieved by installing a perforated aluminum J-channel over the weather resistant barrier at the starting elevation point of the stonework using 1½” electroplated galvanized roofing nails. Next, install Benjamin Obdyke Home Slicker 10 Stone Sheathing and Stucco rainscreen drainage mat over the Vapor Barrier top of the weather resistant barrier and slide 10mm Airspace mat into J-channel to create a bugscreen. Metal Lath Lastly use 13mm staples to secure Benjamin Stone Veneer Obdyke Home Slicker 10 Stone and Stucco rainscreen drainage mat to sheathing and begin applying metal lath.
Step 2 - Applying Scratch Coat
Begin by mixing mortar to manufacturers specifications taking care not to mix to wet as this condition weakens mortar and causes difficulty in application. We recommend using any “Type S” Masonry Cement.
SHEATHING AND WOOD STUD WALL
Lathed surfaces should be covered with a thin coat of mortar raked back with a notched tile trowel to leave a grooved surface (scratch coat) and be allowed to set prior to installing Native Stone. Scratch coat should be allowed to dry up to 24 hours before applying stone. After mortar sets, prior placed scratch coat must be dampened with a mixture of water and/or bonding agent, (read bonding agent instructions prior to use as they react differently to weather conditions) to strengthen the bond between mortar and stone before moving to step 3 and 4 and applying stone. Note: Experienced installers find that they can apply stone to the wall before initial scratch coat begins so as to allow completion in one procedure.
Step 3 - Mortar the Stone
Before install of Native Stone, lay out stones randomly near your work area making sure to include all colors and sizes. Select a stone, dampen the backside of the stone using a masonry brush and water, and apply a ½ inch thick layer of mortar evenly on back of stone.
Step 4 - Applying Stone
Press the stone firmly into place using enough pressure to cause mortar behind the stone to extrude around its edge. Also, firmly wiggle the stone while applying pressure to ensure a good bond. Install corner stones first for easiest fitting (let them set before proceeding with flat stone) and remember to keep shapes, sizes, colors, thicknesses and textures balanced throughout application. Apply remaining stones by working from the bottom up. Joints between stones should be fitted to the customer or architectural specifications to achieve desired finish effect. Note: When necessary Native Stone units can be cut and shaped with a grinder using a 4 to 4Â˝ inch masonry blade.
Step 5 - Remove and/or Dressing Excess Mortar
Be careful not to work the joints too soon or the mortar will smear. Once mortar begins to set (approx. 1/2 hour), remove excess mortar around joints of stone by tooling back joint to desired depth using a wooden or metal striking tool which allows for a stronger bond between the stone & mortar. Doing this forces the mortar into the joints to thoroughly seal the joint edges. Sponges work well at the end of this step as they prevent accidental movement or jarring of recently placed stones.
Step 6 - Brush Joints
Allow mortar to set for 2 hours before using a whisk broom, to brush mortar joints until smooth and all loose mortar has been brushed away from joints and face of stones.
Step 7 - Clean Stone / Completion
Clean any remaining grout off the stone using a sponge or small soft bristle brush. Do not use a wire brush for cleaning. We recommend cleaning the same day of installation as it becomes difficult and problematic to clean once mortar is left to set beyond 2 hours on the face of the stones.
