Centerline Construction Chat: Simulated Stone

Watch Jeff Satterwhite in the video below explain the different types of stone that are used in building and how they are used. See the text version below.

Simulated stone

2 types: Flat Stone – for flat wall, and Corner

Several manufacturers’ make the stone. – Eldorado is who makes the stone shown in the video (Owen’s Corning is a company which produces Cultured Stone)

The stone comes in a variety of different colors and styles and is made of a light weight concrete which is created in a mold. Some varieties include Ledger Stone, Field Stone and River Stone.

2 areas stone can be applied to: Masonry wall or Wood wall.

If applied to a Foundation or Masonry wall, a cement coating is put on, let to dry, then another cement coating is applied the back of the stone or to the wall, where it will be stuck to the Masonry wall.

The Corner Stones are done the same way but they go around corners, they’re put in like a puzzle on the wall or foundation.

On the Wood wall, a moisture barrier (like hydro stop) is attached to the wood wall, and a lath is used, which is nailed over moisture barrier. A base coat is then put on to dry. You apply these the same way you would on Masonry wall – Cement material is put on the back of stone with a scratch coat.

These particular stones are only good for vertical surfaces.

If you are using stones in a horizontal area, like stair treads or a porch, you would need to use a natural stone like Pennsylvania Blue Stone because the other products are not durable enough for foot traffic.
