For simple applications such as a single wall or a back splash Weathered Stone® can be a fun DIY project.
For more complicated applications we highly recommend using a Certified Installer. Weathered Stone® has a network of over 300 certified installers nationwide that have completed an eight hour certification course. The course is separated into the following three sections: theory of layout and design, hands on techniques, and estimating and pricing.
Weathered Stone® comes in the following three standard sizes: 45"X32", 32"X32", and 24"X32". However we can cut to custom sizes in the factory ranging from 4"x4" to 33"X99". It can also be cut down on site with a break away knife.
Yes. For applications using the interior grade material our grout will fill any nail holes or minor damage. Larger damage will require that a panel be replaced and re-grouted. Interior applications use a strippable wall covering adhesive so removal of one piece will not damage your wall
For applications using the Exterior grade material this will probably never happen but if there ever is damage the same method can be used as with the interior material.
Weathered Stone® comes in two version; interior and exterior. The interior version has the same durability as commercial grade wall covering with one advantage: Weathered Stone® is repairable.
The exterior grade Weathered Stone® achieves a 7000 lb psi. It is also fire proof and waterproof.
Yes, Weathered Stone® interior is breathable and can be used in high moisture areas such as bathrooms with out using a clear coat sealer.
Weathered Stone® exterior is water proof and can be used on counter tops, shower stalls, and around pool decks. It is recommended for applications that will sometimes be under water to have an additional sealer to make sure the grout is sealed
This product is approximately 1/32nd of an inch thick with a 1/64th of an inch variance in texture.
This makes the product extremely light weight. The interior grade weighs 2/10's lbs per square foot where the exterior grade weighs 3/10's lbs per square foot.
For interior wall applications we use a heavy duty clear strippable wall covering adhesive.
For exterior grade applications there are two recommended adhesives one is a adhesive based polymer modified mortar or if you need more tack for bending around a tight radius we recommend using an exterior grade carpet adhesive.
These adhesives are available at most home building supply centers and paint supply stores.
