Stoneface is a masonry application that creates the look of stone veneer. There are endless color options and we can match existing stone.
Stoneface is a masonry application that creates the look of real stone and offers an endless number of custom possibilities. We can create almost any color, and even match existing stone. Stoneface can be installed over wooden surfaces, real brick, cinder block, or any other surface on which a galvanized metal lath can be installed. The finished installation is attached to the metal lath and composed of a three different cement plaster layers. Plaster sands (Portland, Masonry Type N, and white) are mixed with iron oxide pigments at the job site, creating the strongest, most natural-looking stoneface possible.

Endures wet/dry and freeze/thaw cycles
After the galvanized metal lath is installed, the base coat of plaster cement is trowelled, allowed to set, then “scratched”. This is referred to as the scratch coat.
The second coat of cement (joint coat) is applied and allowed to set.
Finally, the color cement coat is applied. The cement is applied more heavily in specific areas, and then spread to achieve the texture and thickness of stone. Once this coat has set, the stone design of your choice is cut deep enough to reveal the joint coat.
Any final color that you desire can be spotted or rolled on with a brush, creating an undeniably unique stone design. Colors are mixed with iron oxide pigments, cement, and water. These colors do not rust, fade, or wash off.
