Manufactured stone can be applied just about anywhere! This lightweight affordable faux stone is an excellent option for either inside or out. From backsplashes to bedrooms, manufactured stone adds character to any room. We always recommend using a professional mason, but for those of you who have the time, patience, and mechanical skill give it a try. Manufactured stone is available in either flats or corners. These outside corners are used to create a unique full stone appearance. Each stone is mortared on the back and applied to either metal lath or cement board. The stone can either be laid in a dry stack formation or with a mortared joint. Colored mortar may also be used to fill the joints.
