Stone doesn't stick

Posted by jimla (My Page) on

A friend built a sunroon additon. Framed the knee walls, sheeting, mesh and scratch coat. Buttered stone pieces and placed them on the two end walls with no problems. Did not get to do the long wall until now, maybe two years later and the stones do not stick. Any suggestions for a remedy?

RE: Stone doesn't stick

The surface is likely dirty, dry, and fully cured.

A thorough cleaning might be in order (and any moisture that gets absorbed will help).

Lightly spraying with water, and possibly a concrete bonding agent might help also.
