Installation Benefits Of Faux Stone

Posted on September 18, 2012

The greatest quality of these products is that a person does not need to hire a mason to complete the installation, which will dramatically reduce the labor costs of the entire project. Have you ever seen someone lay down real stone or rock? It can be quite strenuous and stressful logging stones with heavy weights to them. The installation will also take hours to complete when working with real stone and rock. That time can now be cut in half when working with replica stone and replica rock because no preparation is needed and the panels come ready to be installed onto any surface.

When you are installing the products, we recommend starting from the bottom left corner and working your way right. The next row should start on the left-hand side and be worked to the right. We also offer the outlet trim and switch box to use to complement the panels and adjust to use for the switches and outlets.

The outer boundary of the panel comes with an insert on the top and sides for a stack-able option to reach whatever height measurement is needed.

Securing the panels is quite simple and can be done through the use of adhesives such as Liquid Nails or P & L Glue to name a couple. The adhesives should be applied to the back of the panels on the flat surface. It is also recommended that drywall screws be used as well to help secure the placement of the panels on any surface.

Many beautiful replica stone panels come painted in acrylic paint, where the paint serves as a natural protector against mildew and mold and helps to keep maintenance to a minimum.

The final product will come out immaculate.
