Easy To Install

Silvermine® Stone Siding offers the easiest installation in the market. Our patented flashing and fastening system has been specifically engineered to address the challenges faced by both mortared and Mortarless stone products.

Protects From Water

Unlike any other stone product, our patented flashing system creates a tight seal on the wall, moving water away from the structure eliminating the need for an additional water barrier or drainage plane

Other mortarless systems provide some of the labor savings and advantages over traditional mortar-on stone but come short when it comes to protection against water penetration.

Typical mortared solution must be properly installed by a certified mason, and require:

Extra Labor Hours

High Hourly Rates

Extra Materials

A Controlled Enviroment

Silvermine Six Easy Steps

APPLY A VAPOR BARRIER OVER THE WALL

No water resistant barrier (WRB) required

MARK THE STUDS VERTICALLY

Where possible, one fastner per piece of stone should go into a stud.

A STRIP OF FLASHING

at leat 8-inches tall should be fitted to the bottom of the wall. This can be made from aluminum, galvanized steel or rubberized materials.

THE FIRST COURSE OF STONE

Once the bottom strip of flashing is in place, you will begin the first course of stone. You can use nails or screws to install Silvermine stone products. Whichever fasteners you choose, they must penetrate into the studs at least one inch. See Silvermine's website for list of approved fasteners.

The most important part of the entire installation process is getting the first course of stone perfectly level. It will act as a foundation for the rest of the wall and makes for a smoother and more secure process.

Note: If you are installing above a poured slab you should ensure that the bottom of the first course of stone is half an inch above the slab's surface.

It is not necessary to apply an adhesive to the back of this first course of stone as our products are designed to allow for the natural movement from freezing, thawing and the settling of the structure. If you want to apply adhesive, it must be placed only in the center of each piece of stone.

INSTALLING THE NEXT LAYERS

It is important to stagger the stone siding, keeping at least a 3- to 4-inch offset. You shouldn't have any vertical seams running up the wall. Stones come as 2-foot by 6-inch pieces so can be cut into several sections of varying widths to start and adjust the stagger. Silvermine™ provides an industry leading number of stone layouts

WORKING UPWARDS AND WITH THE EDGES

You should make sure to keep the factory edge to the outside and the cut edge to the inside.

MARK THE STUDS VERTICALLY

Our Stone Siding products are game-changing because of the "shingle effect" created by the aluminum flashing distinctive to Silvermine products. The flashing of each stone layer overlaps vertically by 2-inches, which provides protection from mold, mildew and the effects of freezing and thawing.
