Here's an overview of the process for stone veneer siding installation by our Norwich stonework contractors:
1. Initial Consultation:
The project begins with an initial consultation with us. During this meeting, you'll discuss your design preferences, the style of your property, and the scope of the siding installation project.
2. Design and Material Selection:
Based on your preferences, you'll choose the type of stone veneer, including its color, texture, and style. We can assist in selecting materials that complement your property's architectural features.
3. Site Assessment:
We will assess the condition of your existing siding and the exterior surface to ensure it's suitable for stone veneer installation. Any necessary repairs or surface preparation will be identified.
4. Surface Preparation:
Proper surface preparation is essential for a successful installation. The existing siding may need to be cleaned, repaired, or removed. A weather-resistant barrier, such as housewrap or a water-resistant membrane, may be added to protect against moisture infiltration.
5. Installation of Lath and Mortar:
A metal lath is secured to the prepared surface, providing a stable base for the stone veneer. A scratch coat of mortar is applied to the lath to create a textured surface for the stone veneer to adhere to.
6. Stone Veneer Placement:
Stone veneer pieces are placed over the scratch coat, beginning at the bottom and working upward. Spacers or shims may be used to maintain consistent spacing between the stones. The contractor ensures that the stones are securely and evenly attached to the wall.
7. Mortar Application:
A mortar mix is applied around the stone veneer pieces to secure them in place. The mortar is shaped to match the desired style and appearance, such as a dry-stack or grouted look.
8. Pointing and Detail Work:
We pay close attention to pointing, which is the process of filling the gaps between stone veneer pieces with mortar to create a cohesive and finished appearance. Any necessary trimming, cutting, or shaping of the veneer is also done at this stage.
9. Clean-Up and Inspection:
The work area is thoroughly cleaned, and any construction debris is removed. A final inspection is conducted to ensure that the stone veneer siding is installed to meet quality standards and your expectations.
