First, mix 1 part PC cement and 2 parts concrete sand, then add half the adhesive cement part. Pour the water in the mixture little by little, then stir until it is in the form of a paste. In the meantime, before we continue, don’t hesitate to hire the best rock walls experts if you don’t have the time to build a natural stone wall by yourself.
Measure the height of the wall
– Measure the height of the wall to calculate how much material will be installed. If the upper limit of the cladding is not specified, try not to cut the material to be installed on the bottom wall first. Conversely, if the upper limit of cladding has been determined, then try to make the natural stone installed here form intact (not pieces). While the material at the bottom can be cut.
– Use the right water to measure the height of the natural stone so that it is flat, then mark it. Attach nails and threads at the marked spot. The sign should be adjusted to the height of natural stone grout.
– Take a natural stone, then apply the paste to the bottom of the material as thick as 1 to 1.5 cm evenly. Place it on the surface of the wall, then press it with a rubber hammer to stick. Installation of materials should start from the bottom up. When finished, install the bottom of the material with concrete nails. Then clean the remnants of paste immediately.
– There are several cladding patterns that can be selected, namely vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. If you want a diagonal pattern, the natural stone used should have high precision. While the pasta/dough used to glue it to the wall is cement without sand. A simple pattern that is definitely visually interesting is the pattern of brick walls (square). Cut the tip of the material into a 45-degree angle if you want to place it at the elbow meet.
If all material is installed, do the inspection. Are there parts that are not completely attached to the wall or are defective? The gap between one natural stone and another (grout) does not need to be filled with grout paste such as when installing ceramic cladding. After that, you can focus on the finishing part.
