How to Lay Stone Wall Cladding?
You could use wall cladding in your interiors to create a focal point in your room. The natural wall cladding stones are not only attractive, but they are durable and versatile. Many homeowners lay natural stones on their façade walls to enhance the curb appeal of their home. It is a perfect way to dress up your exterior walls and ensure their protection from high temperatures and changing weather.
Wall cladding does a lot more than being the protective layer for your exterior walls. They improve insulation and save you quite a few bucks on the utility bills. Besides that, these stones look incredibly stunning in your landscape. Sandstone and bluestone wall cladding pavers, for example, give your space a natural and organic feel. It helps add elegance to your space. To achieve perfect aesthetics, it is important to pay special attention to the wall cladding installation.
While some homeowners hire professionals for wall cladding job, others use DIY tutorials to decorate their interior and exterior walls. For those who are planning to DIY the wall cladding installation, here we have mentioned a few steps that can simplify the task. Let’s take a look:
1. Clean the Surface
The first step for stone wall cladding is preparing the surface. No matter which base material you choose, it is important to start with cleaning. The walls must be free from loose debris, waxes, oils, paints, and dust. To get the stone cladding tiles to adhere optimally to the wall, you must clean the surface using a garden hose. You could also apply some basic wall cleaning detergent. Remove paints, oils, and any debris that can hamper the wall cladding project.
2. Select the Natural Stone
Wall cladding stones Sydney are available in an extensive range of colors, sizes, and shapes. The best option for you depends on your landscape, the walls you are cladding, and your preference. For instance, if you are installing these stones on the walls of patios, then you must consider a sturdy and durable material that has the ability to withstand weather, moisture, and environmental elements.
Similarly, if you are dressing up your exterior walls that will remain exposed to the weather and extreme temperatures, choose the stone carefully. Travertine and limestone wall cladding stones make a perfect fit for exterior walls. The light and warm tones of these natural stones look quite inviting. They add depth to your space. Most importantly, these stones are designed to resist all kinds of weather elements and temperatures. Before you place an order, measure the size of the wall. It is best to order a few extra pavers.
3. Create a Solid Foundation
The durability of the wall cladding stones depends on the foundation. It is the substrate that supports the pavers and keeps them in place. The most important part of wall cladding is the foundation. You could build the base with concrete slabs and mortar. You can talk to a professional for this part. Fortunately, you don’t need to drill the walls or use heavy equipment for building a strong base for the wall cladding stones. All you need to do is create a thin-set mortar. You could buy a ready-made mortar. Apply the mortar to the wall and start laying wall cladding stones.
4. Lay Out the Pavers
Before installing the stone cladding on the wall, you must lay out these tiles on the ground for a proper arrangement. Whether you are installing these pavers in a linear pattern or a free-form design, make sure that you arrange the tiles on the ground before adhering them to the wall. Natural stones are quarried from the Earth. They take thousands of years to form. That being said, these stones vary in appearance.
Even if you order the same type of pavers, chances are they will have a slight variation in color and texture. That’s the reason why you must lay these tiles on the ground to decide the arrangement. Once the tiles adhere to the wall, they can’t be removed and shifted. You must lay the tiles based on their colors, texture, and size variations. To create a visually appealing wall, you must arrange these tiles in a way that each stone complements the adjoining slab.
5. Use the Adhesive
Stone wall cladding is comparatively easier than patio and driveway paving. You only need to use a high-quality adhesive to adhere these tiles to the wall. Make sure you clean the surface of the pavers before applying adhesive.
As mentioned above, the success of the wall cladding project depends on the quality of the foundation and adhesive. You can use a trowel to apply adhesive to the base. Remove the excess adhesive from the pavers immediately after the installation. Pay special attention when laying the tiles. The glue must not touch your skin. Once you have installed the pavers on the walls, leave them for 24 hours.
Last but not least, you can seal the wall using a strong penetrating sealant. Sealing is an important step for stone wall cladding installation. It protects the beauty of your wall.
