The Importance of Proper Stone Veneer Installation
Manufactured Stone Veneer (MSV) increases the value of homes, but improper installation can lead to costly damages. Though MSV is easier to install than a full stone wall, it does require masonry expertise and masonry-grade tools to ensure proper installation.
Why should you use a qualified mason to install stone veneer?
Hiring a qualified mason to install stone veneer ensures building owners get all the value and longevity out of their MSV installations – one less thing for builders to worry about.
When not installed properly, common issues that could cause significant damage to a home include:
- Mold, rot, and other damage caused by moisture trapped behind the stone veneer due to improper mortar application
- Leaks around windows, doors, vents, and other openings
- Improperly installed stone veneer could also create a safety risk due to the potential the stone could fall. Qualified masons ensure the stone install looks aesthetically pleasing while completing to code.
- Working with a qualified installer ensures bonding protection on the project to protect from any issues related to the install impacting other parts of the project.
