Post Re: Stone Veneer

Thanks for the reply Tscarborough. You recommendation is exactly what I was looking for. I went to H-D today and bought some RedGard (they certainly don't give that stuff away $ 89 /gal!!!). As for the thinset I plan on using Megalite which even recommends to use their product with RedGard.
Awesome advice!!

This is starting to make sense to me now.

1) tape and seal all joints in cement board using Megalite,

2) apply two coats of RedGard

3) use Megalite thin set to bond Eldorado Stone (veneer) to RedGard.

4) use S or N type grout to fill in the joints between the veneer fieldstone.

One last question when bonding the stone veneer to the wall do I use a notched trowel and set them like I would if I were doing ceramic tile or do I butter the back of the stone and press it in place?

Full coat back buttering is the best way.
