QUESTION:

I am going to use Kodiak Mountain Stone Frontier Ledge Nebo My question is; Can I use a strong construction adhesive, like PL400 or Gorilla Glue, to install the stone veneer?

 

Answer:

It is recommended to always use a Mortar and Mesh combination as set out in the Kodiak Mountain Stone Installation instructions.  Local codes will mandate what product or combination is required in various jurisdictions.  Some things to remember is the ICC (International Code Council) sets their benchmarks for application of products and when products like Kodiak Mountain Stone Veneer has been tested within these benchmarks; the Code Council issues sets its codes based on the application and use of these products.  There is also waterproofing to take into account and installing stone with PL or any adhesive to a surface does not create a water barrier.

Something to remember about adhesives; is that they are a chemical and naturally different issues arise such as off-gasing; smell; freeze-thaw degeneration cycles all are considerations.  Kodiak Mountain Stone encourages users to follow our installation guide and to always check local building codes.

Ideas & Suggestions

Did you know Kodiak Mountain Stone is a great Product for Interior Use?

Stone has always been an attractive finishing touch to any project and is becoming very popular on all sizes of projects. With the growing popularity; manufactured stone has become increasingly more attractive as well due to weight, finish and overall price.   Manufactured Stone has been a popular alternative for exteriors for decades but there is a growing trend towards Manufactured Stone and Kodiak Mountain Stone products on interiors for both home and commercial applications.

Fireplaces have always been an interior focal point in any home with stone but moreover other projects are evolving and  using Kodiak products. Kodiak Mountain Stone can give your interiors more warmth and durability with a sense of style in any kitchen, bathroom, wine cellar or even feature walls. Kitchens are the heart of any home and the nature of a kitchen can be captured through stone in modern or contemporary styles. There is a durability and a sense of belonging if the right stone is chosen for a kitchen and can tie that kitchen to nature.  Wouldn’t your island stand the test of time(if not your kids shoes) if surrounded by a beautiful stack stone?

Bathrooms with shower enclosures accented with stone are another way of warming up a dreary space or even a small stone wall to accent your tub. Stone back-splashes are simple yet functional and don’t interfere with the faucets or other features yet increase the value of your home or project.

Many times designers pick stone to enhance an otherwise drab boring wall and make it a feature in your home. Kodiak Mountain Stone will bring vibrance to a wall or area through contrast. An accent wall will change a room or an area and make it more appealing and in many cases increase the value of a home.

By replicating natural stone in many surroundings is a great way to add value, durability and elegance to an otherwise boring area in an inexpensive professional way. Please check out our website at www.KodiakMountain.com for other suggestions or galleries of ideas for your special space.
