Converting Flats & Corners For Manufactured Stone and Thin Veneers:

Linear Feet of Corners
Total SQ. FT.
You will need approximately:

square feet of flats.

We recommend rounding up on all approximations, to ensure you have enough material.

You will need approximately:

70# / 80# Bags (70# bags for *Type N and 80# bags for Premix Type S)

We recommend rounding up on all approximations, to ensure you have enough material.

* When using non premixed mortar, like Type N, M or S masonry cement, approximately 18 shovels or 200 lbs of fine masonry sand will be needed.

* When using non premixed mortar, like Type N, M or S masonry cement, approximately 18 shovels or 200 lbs of fine masonry sand will be needed.

Paper & Lath:

Each roll of Double D paper contains 162 square feet (it is already doubled). When laying up the paper, start at the bottom and work the way up the wall. This way, the pieces above overlap the pieces below to allow for good drainage. If ordering paper by the pallet, they contain 144 rolls.

Each piece of lath measures 2'4" x 8' for a total of approximately 18 square feet. However, after overlapping the pieces 2" on vertical and 4" on horizontal - the yield per piece will be 16 square feet per piece. When using lath, keep in mind that is should be laid horizontally (8' running left to right). The lath should feel rough running up and smooth going down. Also, remember that if the wall has outside or inside corners that they need to be wrapped or corner aid needs to be used (If corners are butted up against each other rather than wrapped, they will crack the first time it freezes).

If ordering lath, it can be ordered 3 different ways: by the piece, bundle or pallet. A bundle has 10 pieces and a pallet has 25 bundles if using self-furring or 50 bundles if using flat.

We recommend rounding up on all approximations, to ensure you have enough material.

“We designed a stone chimney and hearth pad for a wood stove with Joe Saba's help, he (and others) were fantastic to work with and the project turned out great. We installed the material ourselves, having no experience, and while a little intimidating, Joe walked us through the design and install process which was incredibly helpful.”
