Installation Tip 101 - Speed Up Troweling for Modern Stone Veneer

• Spread mortar faster.

• Use a two-trowel system to quickly spread mud evenly in the lath on the wall.

• Prop up your mud board about 16 in. high and within easy reach. Load it with mortar. Then use your London trowel as shown to transfer the mortar from the mud board to your trowel. Pull the trowel up the wall to embed the mortar in the lath.

• What kind of mortar should you use?

• You’ll find recipes for mixing your own mortar in the stone manufacturer’s instructions, but we recommend using premixed Type S mortar that’s labeled for use with veneer stone. Special additives are already included—all you add is water.
