Installing Thin Stone For Your Patio Or Retaining Wall Project

Fairfax Contractor uses thin stone to build many of its outdoor landscaping features. We design-build home stone vernier. We use thin stone on our patio seating walls, fireplaces,  pillars, and fire pits. Typically thin stone is installed with a rich mixture of Portland cement and sand. The base for most of these projects is the cinder block which is built into the foundation of the feature. Once the cinder block is laid, we veneer it with your choice of thin stone. Utilizing this Portland cement and sand creates one of the strongest cement bonds to hold the thin stone onto the block. The joints range from three-quarters of an inch to 1 inch and are typically sponge finished or raked with a masonry jointer.
