Stone Veneer Problem

Click on photos to enlarge
Stone Veneer - Missing a few pieces !

Stone veneer installed with conventional "normal" Portland Cement / Sand Mortar

Jobsite mixed & bagged conventional PC/ Sand mortars usually have good compressive strength but poor or marginal bond strength.  They make poor quality bonding mortars for installing thin stone veneers.

A better choice would be a factory prepared, engineered, adhesive mortar.  An adhesive mortar as part of a Masonry Veneer Installation System.  Something Like Laticrete MVIS mortars !
