DIY Stone Veneer With Grout

DIY Stone Veneer with Grout Installation… Yes, you can DIY Part 2

Do it yourself stone veneers with grout installation. Watch how USTONE Adhesive makes quick work of installing stone veneer on your interior wall on an outside 45-degree corner stone installation.

Installing stone veneer with grout

Start by preparing your project area by installing concrete board with the print side facing out. This DIY stone veneers grout installation works best if you use an overlap pattern alternating large and small flat pieces of stone veneer on your outside corner stone installation. If this is your first-time installing stone veneer with grout, lay out a few feet of stone in front of your project area and plan out your pattern.

Using your caulking gun loaded with USTONE DIY stone veneers adhesive, begin installing the stone veneer on your wall surface. Once this is complete and you’ve allowed time for the USTONE adhesive to dry (always follow directions on the cartridge) you’re ready to start with the grout installation.


DIY stone installation with mortar joints

recommend an S-type mortar like KING 2-1-9. Mix it to the consistency of toothpaste. Soft peaks will form on the surface and then settle when you kick the bucket you are preparing it in. Make sure it’s not too runny so that when you put it into the grout bag it doesn’t stream out too easily. Watch Sebastian’s technic for squeezing the grout mixture into your joints and begin your DIY stone veneer with grout installation.

Let the grout set up for a period of time before you rack or tool the joints and brush out the excess mortar. It’s not like grouting ceramic tile, DO NOT smear the mortar on the surface of your stone veneer as you will not get it off the stone once it has set up and dried.

Once you’re finished and your workspace is clean, sit back and relax and enjoy your new DIY stone veneers grout installation installed with USTONE Adhesive.
