A couple of the right tools sure would help it stick better if they were used right!



The scarfire/scratcher is the preferred tool for the job but the notched trowel will do the same job and help keep it the same depth!
Sure helps the Faux stone/glorified finish stick to the scratch cote and lath!



Kickouts preferably the DRYFLEKT if not then one with sealed/folded seams that will kick the water out into the gutters and not down the face of the cladding sure would help a lot too!


In this set of installation videos what do you see used for scratching/notching the wall so the stone will adhere better?

http://www.canyon-stone.com/#/HOW-TO-VIDEO-06-00/
And in the pictures that are in the links do you see any scratch cote or kickouts,weepscreed,casing/66 bead around all of the edges for the backer rod and sealant joint?

And the windows and FAUX wood trim are also improperly installed.

You think people actually use these obsolete Tools?---------------- Cry

I thought the picture of the smooth finish and the Lick & Stick Stones are just Licked and Stuck-ed to the walls....No?

You trying to say a special trowel is needed for the scratch coat before the Lick and Stick Stone?----- Huh?

Natures signal I guess....well that's good...because I expect quite a few Shaqs collapsing in the next few years.

The ones tossed up in the early 2000's are about ready for something bizarre happening.....
