Application to Masonry

Easy to install and easy to maintain.

Application to Masonry
  • 1 On a clean surface, the veneer may be applied directly to a masonry backing without mesh. Painted or waterproofed masonry surfaces should be cleaned and sandblasted to provide a good bond surface.
  • 2 Apply Type-S (or equivalent) cement mortar at least ½” thick.
  • 3 Install Harristone Veneer.
  • 4 Brush, tool and rake the Type-S (or equivalent) mortar joint.

Harristone is a tested and proven product. See G.S. Harris Co., Inc. installation specification and ICC Evaluation Service, Inc. Evaluation Report # ESR-1593 reissued October 2015, for allowable values and/or conditions of use for all materials presented in this document.

  • Harristone Precast Stone Veneer is used as an adhered wall veneer.
