Eco Stone Skins (Stone Veneer Tiles)

Installation Instruction

Step 1: Prepare Wall

Prep the wall with drywall, making sure it's sanded smooth.

Step 2: Spread Thinset and Set Panels

Spread a thin layer of thinset on the wall with a trowel (Image 1), as well as a thin layer on the back of the veneer panel (Image 2). Apply pressure to make sure panel is secure to the wall (Image 3).

TIP: Using larger 2x4 panels will add a unique look and save time on tiling over traditional smaller panels.

Step 3: Cut Panels

If you're tiling around shower drains or fixtures, use tin snips to cut panels to fit.

Step 4: Apply Grout (Optional)

Once the tile is set, you can either let it dry or grout the entire surface. If you choose to grout the entire surface, apply grout with a float. Remove excess grout with a wet sponge.

Step 5: Apply Grout (Optional)

Use hand roller to remove air between sheet and substrate specially the air in the middle of sheet which should be rolled out to edges.
