This is we are very product to offer faux stone panels that are incredibly easily to install and the take very little time.
The customer below was worried about having to remove the exiting brick which were esthetically outdated and did not match the rest of the decor in the room. When we explained that our faux stone panels can be directly installed over the brick or any other surface the homeowner was pleasantly surprised.
As long as the surface on which you want to install the faux stone panels is clean and free of dust and oily substance you can simply use some inexpensive construction adhesive to install the stone panels. In this case we recommend the use of some masonry screws ( some are called Tapcons and are usually blue ). To cover the screw heads some caulk can be used and then painted with our touch-up kits to completely conceal the use of screws.
