The Mountain Stone Cladding is the latest trend to have, it creates a beautiful earthy or rustic look to your home.
CLADDING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
NB! New walls require 4 weeks curing time before cladding can commence. Newly plastered walls require a further 2 weeks before cladding.
Painted surfaces should be 80% chipped and all dust removed before cladding.
Spread 6mm of tile adhesive to the wall using a notched trowel. Apply only small areas at a time.
Lightly butter the cladding with a bit of adhesive and apply with pressure and a twisting action, ensuring the cladding is well adhered.
Remove excess adhesive from joints before drying occurs, keeping cladding clean as you proceed.
A diamond blade with angle grinder should be used to trim/cut any cladding to size or shape.
After installation again wash off cladding with a sponge and clean water. Start at the top and work your way down.
Cladding is ideal for outdoors and can be left untreated, allowing it to naturally weather and age with time.
However, seal may be used where cladding is exposed to contamination. (E.g. food preparation/braai). Pre-test sealer on off cuts to confirm required results before applying to cladded wall. Do not seal in direct sunlight or on wet cladding.
