REPEL 10 (Siloxane PD) Protective Sealer for Your Manufactured Stone Veneer

Posted on

There are a number of different sealers that you may use on your manufactured stone veneer products. One of the most common questions we receive is whether or not we have a sealer that will not change the appearance of the stone. Most sealers do either have a high gloss or matte finish that can change the appearance or color of the stone.

 

Repel 10 (Siloxane PD) from Kodiak Mountain Stone is a high quality sealant that will not change the appearance of your stone.

 

Repel 10 is a ready-to-use, water-based silane/siloxane water repellent for concrete and most masonry and stucco surfaces. Repel 10 will not impair the natural breathing characteristics of treated surfaces. it helps masonry resist cracking, spalling, staining and other damage related to water intrusion.

 

Safety Information

Always read full label and SDS for precautionary instructions before use. Use appropriate safety equipment and job site controls during application and handling.

PREPARATION

Protect people, vehicles, property, plants, windows and all non masonry surfaces from product, splash, residue, fumes and wind drift. Protect and/or divert foot and auto traffic.

Thoroughly clean the surface using the appropriate Sure Klean® or Enviro Klean® product. Clean newly constructed and repointed surfaces before application. Siloxane PD won’t impair adhesion of most sealing and caulking compounds. Always test for compatibility.

Though Siloxane PD may be applied to slightly damp surfaces, best performance is achieved on clean, visibly dry and absorbent surfaces. Excessive moisture inhibits penetration, reducing the service life and performance of the treatment.

Window Glass Protection

Protect window glass before use. Sure Klean® Strippable Masking is effective protection for use with this product. If protecting windows is impractical, follow these steps:

1. Clean window glass thoroughly before application to nearby concrete or masonry.

2. Don’t use in wind or when air or surface temperatures are hotter than 95°F (35°C).

3. Try to keep Siloxane PD off the glass.

4. After treated surfaces have been protected from water for 6 hours, if product is on window glass, clean as soon as possible with soap and warm water. Alternatively use Enviro Klean® 2010 All Surface Cleaner to remove dried residues within 3–5 days.

Surface and Air Temperatures

Best surface and air temperatures are 40–95°F (4–35°C) during use and for 8 hours after. If freezing conditions exist before application, let masonry thaw. The water carrier may freeze at low temperatures or evaporate in high temperatures. Both conditions impair penetration and results. Cleanup is more diffcult from surfaces hotter than 95°F (35°C).

Equipment

Recommended application is by high volume, low-pressure (<50 psi) spray. Fan spray tips are recommended to avoid atomization. Do not atomize/vaporize the material.

For small scale application, or when spray application is not appropriate, product may be applied using brush or roller. Contact Customer Care or your local PROSOCO representative for more information.

Storage and Handling

Keep from freezing. Store in a cool, dry place. Always seal container after dispensing. Do not alter or mix with other chemicals. Published shelf life assumes upright storage of factory-sealed containers in a dry place. Maintain temperature of 45–100°F (7–38°C). Do not double stack pallets. Dispose of unused product and container in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

APPLICATION

Read “Preparation” and the Safety Data Sheet before use.

ALWAYS TEST a small area of each surface to confrm suitability, coverage rates and desired results before starting overall application. Test with the same equipment, recommended surface preparation and application procedures planned for general application.

Dilution & Mixing

Apply as packaged. Do not dilute or alter.

Application Instructions

For best results, apply “wet-on-wet” to a visibly dry and absorbent surface.

Vertical Surfaces: Sprayer

Saturate from the bottom up, creating a 4–8 inch (15–20 cm) rundown below the spray contact point. Let the frst application penetrate for 5–10 minutes. Resaturate. Less will be needed for the second application.

Vertical Surfaces: Brush or Roller

Recommended for small scale application or when spray application is not appropriate. Contact PROSOCO for more information. Saturate uniformly. Let penetrate for 5–10 minutes. Brush out heavy runs and drips that don’t penetrate.

Horizontal Surfaces

Saturate in a single application. Use enough to keep the surface wet for 2–3 minutes before penetration. Broom out puddles until they soak in.

Dense Surfaces

Apply a single coat. Use enough to completely wet the surface without creating drips, puddles or rundown. Do not over apply. Test for application rate.

Drying Time

Treated surfaces dry to touch in 1 hour. Protect surfaces from rainfall for 6 hours following treatment. Protect from foot and vehicle traffc until visibly dry. Siloxane PD gains its water-repellency properties in 72 hours.

Cleanup

Clean tools, equipment, and over spray with soap and warm water.

Paint Adhesion

Always test to make sure paint sticks to treated surfaces. Improve adhesion before painting by pressure water-rinsing the treated surface, then letting it dry. Some cementitious coatings, plaster, stucco, etc. may not adhere well to treated surfaces. Install them first and let them thoroughly cure before application. Always test to verify compatibility between Siloxane PD and other proposed surface treatments.

BEST PRACTICES

Surface should be clean, dry and absorbent before application. Clean soiled surfaces with the appropriate Sure Klean® or Enviro Klean® cleaner before application. Call Customer Care toll-free at 800-255-4255 for recommendations.

Recommended application for PROSOCO protective treatments is high volume, low- pressure (<50 psi) spray equipment with a fan-type spray tip and adjustable pressure to avoid atomization of the material. For small scale application, or when spray application is not appropriate, brushes or roller may be used. Contact Customer Care or your local representative for more information on brush/ roller application. Protect treated surfaces from rain for 6 hours following treatment. ALWAYS TEST for best coverage rates and to confrm results before overall application. Test using the application instructions included herein. Let the test area dry thoroughly before inspection. Never go it alone. If you have problems or questions, contact your local PROSOCO distributor or feld representative. Or call PROSOCO technical Customer Care, toll-free at 800-255-4255.

Manufactured Stone Veneer Installation

Posted on

I was meeting with someone this morning at a beautiful golf course in Scottsdale AZ. Our conversation quickly turned to our businesses and he started to ask questions about the “cultured stone” industry. He told me that he’s done a number of renovations and even some “flips” while he was in California, but he had always used natural stone because he didn’t want the fake look.

 

When you hear the words “cultured stone” or “manufactured stone veneer,” if you conquer up images of fake stone that you can spot a mile away, then you need to take another look at Kodiak Mountain Stone’s products. The manufactured stone veneer industry has come a long way over the years and many people today would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between most manufactured stone veneer and natural stone. Therefore, with manufactured stone being cheaper and lighter than natural stone it is a great choice for any do-it-yourself stone veneer project.

Kodiak Mountain Stone’s manufactured stone veneer products are great for both interior and exterior applications. The biggest difference between an interior and an exterior application has to do with waterproofing and flashing. Any time that you are installing stone you should research your local building codes and requirements because they will vary from one area to the next. Improper waterproofing and flashing can be an extremely costly mistake that you could pay for down the road.

Your project begins with your vision. As you are planning out your project it will be helpful to use the Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer where you can upload photos of your project and see what it would look like with stone in different areas. Try out the Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer online HERE

 

Once you have designed your project you will need to calculate the amount of stone you will need, prepare the surface and begin the installation. All of these items will be addressed below in the Kodiak Mountain Stone Installation Guide. If you have any questions feel free to contact us at info@kodiakmountain.com or at 1-877-563-4252 or contact a professional mason in your area.

KODIAK MOUNTAIN STONE INSTALLATION MANUAL

 

Estimating Material Needed:

  1. Measure total square footage of area to be covered with Kodiak Mountain stone veneer. For example, a wall may be 12 feet at the base and 12 feet highó12 x 12 = 144 square feet.
  2. Determine the area of all large openings such as windows and doors. For example, the wall in part A) may have a window measuring 3 feet by 4 feetó3 x 4 = 12 square feet.
  3. Determine the linear footage of corner stones needed. Each linear foot of corner stones also accounts for approximately square foot of area. For example, the wall in part A) may have 24 linear feet of cornersó24 x = 12 square feet of area.
  4. Deduct the area of openings and corner area square footage from total square footage: A ñ B ñ C = needed square footage of rock. Example from parts A), B), and C) yields the following: 144 ñ 12 ñ 12 = 120 square feet of flats are needed, along with 24 linear feet of corners.
  5. Some extra quantity of stone is desirable for fitting and cuttingóplease add 10%.

Tools Needed:

  • –  Hammer
  • –  Level
  • –  Grinder complete with masonry cutting blade
  • –  Circular Saw complete with both wood and masonry blade
  • –  Safety Glasses
  • –  Dust Mask
  • –  Grout Bag
  • –  Soft Bristled Brush
  • –  1 æî Roofing Nails
  • –  Tin Snips
  • –  Wheel Barrow
  • –  Hoe
  • –  Masonry Trowel
  • –  Hawk
  • –  Spacers or ìshimsî
  • –  oî Margin Trowel
  • –  Hammer Tacker complete with Staples
  • –  Stiff Bristle Brush

I. Preparing the Surface 1. Moisture Barrier

If you are installing the stone over wallboard, paneling, plywood, or other rigid wood- related sheathing, it is necessary to cover the wall surface with a moisture barrier. In most cases, building codes are satisfied by using 2 layers of tar paper or two-ply 60 minute grade D paper. Be sure that the sheets overlap from the bottom up. Overlap 2 inches on the horizontal seams and 6 inches on the vertical seams. Flashing, weep screed, and appropriate drainage means are required at stoppage points of stone veneer and at any places of potential penetration.

When stone is to be installed over clean brick, block, cement board or other masonry surfaces, no moisture barrier is necessary.

Check your local building codes for required flashing specifics and to ensure these instructions meet specific moisture barrier requirements.

2. Wire Lath

Directly over the moisture barrier, cover the area with a wire lath. We recommend using at least a 2.5 lb (1.71 Kg) diamond mesh expanded wire lath meeting the requirements of ASTM C 847. Overlap lath sides and ends no less than 1î. Be sure the lath is attached with the small cups pointing upward. Attach the lath using galvanized nails or staples every 6î on center vertically, and 16î on center horizontally, trying to penetrate studs with each nail. Use staples or fasten any loose areas between the studs. Use tin snips to cut the lath. With corners, ensure that the lath is tightly foldedónever have a seam on the corner, and nail the lath on both faces of the corner.

II. Mixing the Setting Mortars

You will need three different mixes for your stone veneer installation: scratch coat, mortar, and grout. Each differs and requires specific amounts of different materials. While each mason tends to have their own recipes, we have found the following proportions to work well:

Scratch Coató1 part Type S Masonry Mortar, 2 parts Masonry Sand Mortaró1 part Type S Masonry Mortar, 2 parts Masonry Sand

Groutó1 Part Type S Masonry Mortar, 3 Parts Sand

NOTE: If mixing your own mortar from scratch, ensure that all ingredients comply with, and are mixed to meet ASTM standards and/or local building codes:

  • –  Cement: ASTM C 150, Type I, or masonry cement meeting ASTM C 91.
  • –  Masonry sand: ASTM C 144, natural or manufactured.
  • –  Pigments: ASTM C 979, mineral oxide type. Do not exceed color manufactureríslimitations.
  • –  Mixed mortar should comply with ASTM C 270, Type S requirements
  • –  Mixed grout should comply with ASTM C 270, Type S proportionsSteps:
    1. Combine mortar and sand in a wheelbarrow and mix them together. Do this before adding any water.
    2. Add water slowly, mixing continually while mixing. Avoid adding too much water as this can make the mix an unsuitable consistency.
    3. Continue adding water and mixing until a consistent paste is formed, free of excess clumps.
      1. Scratch Coat
        1. Cover the entire wire lath with an even, î layer of mortar. Work the mortar with a cement trowel then scrape off the excess.
        2. While the cement is still wet, gently scrape it with a fine bristled brush or hair pick. The resulting grooves rough up the scratch coatóthis added friction creates a better bond when the stone is applied. The brushing should be gentle enough that no mortar is removed.
        3. Let the scratch coat dry sufficiently. Drying can take anywhere from 8 to 24 hours depending on temperature, humidity, airflow, and mix used. Once dry, the scratch coat should have a light gray color.
      2. Applying the Stone

1. Before applying stone, ensure that proper measures are taken to divert water run- off away from the stone. This can be done through the use of cant strips, gutters,

and flashing. Excess run-off and splashing can, over time, stain the material. Also ensure that the stone will not be applied below the water level, and will not be subjected to chlorine or other chemicals that may discolor the stone.

  1. Mix a batch of mortar according to the recipe and directions in this manual.
  2. Before any installation, it is always wise to lay out a section of stone on the groundópreferably 15-30 square feet. This exercise will help you better blend colors and stone sizes when you apply the stones. The goal is to achieve a balance of stone sizes, shapes, colors, textures, and thicknesses. Proper blending can also be achieved by selecting and mixing different stones from different boxes during installation.
  3. Cornersóit is helpful to install the corners first. Alternate the short and long returns as you install them.
  4. When installing flats, start from the top and work your way down; this will help keep the stones clean from dripping mortar. However, with Ready Stack, we recommend starting from the bottom and working your way up.When using Ready Stack, work your way up, pushing each piece tightly against the stone next to it and below it. Use a level as you work. We recommend these stones be installed side by side to keep the entire row the same height. This will ensure that with each new row, you have a flat level surface to work on.
  5. Before mortaring and installing, dry fit each stone to ensure it will fit in the desired place.
  6. Using a trowel, apply a inch layer of mortar to the back of the individual stones. Press the stone against the wall, and gently press it into place. If mortar drips onto another stone, wait until the mortar is dry, then brush it off with a dry whisk broom.
  7. Stones can be cut or trimmed for fitting purposes. A power saw with a masonry blade works best. You can also trim small pieces off with a widemouth nipper, or cut a stone in half with the back of your hammer, a trowel, or a hatchet. Cut at an angle so as to best disguise the cut. Cutting can also be concealed through the grouting process.
  8. In extraordinarily hot weather, dampen the back of each stone just prior to installation, as well as the surface to which the stone will be applied. Note that in cold weather below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius), mortar will not cure properly.

V. Grouting

  1. Mix a batch of grout according to the recipe and directions given in this manual.
  2. The hole in the tip of the grout bag should be no larger than a inch to begin with. You can always cut the hole bigger if needed, so it is best to start small.
  3. The grout bag should be approximately half full with the mixture. Twist the top end of the bag until some grout is pushed back into the bucket. This will eliminate air bubbles, and help the grout stream to be smooth and consistent.
  4. Keeping the top end twisted, gently squeeze the grout into the joints. Gaps between stones should receive a inch layer of grout.
  5. Let the grout begin to dry until it is firm, but not solid. This usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. Be sure to not let grout fully dry or striking will be impossible.
  6. Use a wooden or metal striking tool to rake out the excess mortar. This helps you achieve the proper depth, and also forces the mortar into the joints to achieve a thorough seal along the stone edges. When striking, the grout should crumble away. If it smears or gathers too much, then it is too wet and needs to dry for a few more minutes.
  7. Use a soft bristled brush to sweep excess dust off the stone and further smooth the joints. Never use wire brushes, and make sure brushes used are dry, as wet brushes, combined with the grout, may stain the rock.

 

BULLETIN
DATE: MARCH 2016
 
REGARDING: The use of Polymner Modified Mortar for tight-fit/dry stacked veneer installation
 
TO: All Kodiak Mountain Stone Dealers, Installers, and Users:
 
We believe quality stone demands quality installation. Mortar has changed.  We ask that you all stress the importance of using Polymer Modified Mortar for tight-figt/dry stacked veneer installation. These new Polymer Modified Mortars are more workable, and they bond better.
 
Type N or Type S mortar should not be used for installing tight-fit/drystacked installations.  Polymer Modified Mortar should be used for these tight-fit/drystacked installations.  Conventional Type N and Type S mortars are designed for laying up block and brick, and are not required to have high bond strength.  Polymer Modified Mortars on the other hand are made specifically for bonding and provide very high bond strength.  Type N and Type S mortar are adequate for installing stone applications having grouted joints because the grouted joints provide additional bond to the sides of the stones; and also because the grouted joints act as a secondary attachment.  In addition, the grouted joints also seal the stone walls from water accumulation behind the stones which can cause debonding when frozen.  But tight-fit/drystacked stone installations don’t have these grout joint “safety valves”.

 

More About Polymer Modified Mortar:

Ultimate Bond. Non Sagging.

 

SPEC MIX® Polymer Modified Stone Veneer Mortar (PMSVM) is a technologically advanced adhered veneer mortar for use in bonding adhered manufactured stone veneer, natural thin cut stone and thin brick to a cementitious substrate. PMSVM is designed to provide excellent workability, cohesion, high bond strength, sag resistance, water resistance, efflorescence minimization, and durability. SPEC MIX PMSVM is the ideal solution for architects and contractors with projects where an immediate and ongoing need for mortar delivering high bond strength and sag resistance during installation is required. In applications where mortar joints are not utilized,such as dry stack applications, SPEC MIX PMSVM should be used to gain additional bond strength and “pop-off” protection. Installing natural thin cut stone veneer is aided by the unique anti-sag and high bond properties of SPEC MIX PMSVM.

In addition to custom mix designs that are available for specific applications or properties, the SPEC MIX Polymer Modified Stone Veneer Mortar is designed to be compatible with the characteristics of most all specified adhered masonry veneer units. It is acceptable for all types of construction: concrete, masonry, wood frame or steel studs, with submittals available upon request.

How to Install Manufactured Stone Veneer – Kodiak Mountain Stone

Posted on

Stone adds an elegance and beauty to a home, a fireplace, feature wall or any other project that it is used on. But to ensure the desired results it is important that our stone veneer is installed properly. Proper installation ensures the final project has the visual appearance desired, but there are also important aspects physically such as the proper surface preparation (i.e. moisture barrier, etc.).

 

The majority of our stone veneer is installed by professional masons but we also get a lot of inquiries from those who want to  take on the project themselves. Either way, it is helpful to know how to properly install your stone veneer to make sure it is being done correctly.  Before you begin any installation it is important that you know and understand your local building codes and requirements.

 

In this article we will use our installation manual to help you understand everything from how to determine the amount of stone you need, what tools are required, how to prepare the surface and how to install the stone. We will also include a video that walks you through each of these steps.  Additionally we will talk about Polymer Modified Mortar and it’s uses and benefits.

Estimating Material Needed:

  1. Measure total square footage of area to be covered with Kodiak Mountain stone veneer. For example, a wall may be 12 feet at the base and 12 feet high—12 x 12 = 144 square feet.
  2. Determine the area of all large openings such as windows and doors. For example, the wall in part A) may have a window measuring 3 feet by 4 feet —3 x 4 = 12 square feet.
  3. Determine the linear footage of corner stones needed. Each linear foot of corner stones also accounts for approximately ½ square foot of area. For example, the wall in part A) may have 24 linear feet of corners—24 x ½ = 12 square feet of area.
  4. Deduct the area of openings and corner area square footage from total square footage: A – B –- C = needed square footage of rock. Example from parts A), B), and C) yields the following: 144 -– 12 –- 12 = 120 square feet of flats are needed, along with 24 linear feet of corners.
  5. Some extra quantity of stone is desirable for fitting and cutting. Please add 10%.

While each mason tends to have their own recipes, we have found the following
proportions to work well:

  • Scratch Coat— – 1 part Type S Masonry Mortar, 2 parts Masonry Sand
  • Mortar— – 1 part Type S Masonry Mortar, 2 parts Masonry Sand
  • Grout— – 1 Part Type S Masonry Mortar, 3 Parts Sand

NOTE: If mixing your own mortar from scratch, ensure that all ingredients comply with, and
are mixed to meet ASTM standards and/or local building codes:

  • Cement: ASTM C 150, Type I, or masonry cement meeting ASTM C 91.
  • Masonry sand: ASTM C 144, natural or manufactured.
  • Pigments: ASTM C 979, mineral oxide type. Do not exceed color manufacturer’s limitations.
  • Mixed mortar should comply with ASTM C 270, Type S requirements
  • Mixed grout should comply with ASTM C 270, Type S proportions

We recommend these stones be installed side by side to keep the entire row the same height. This will ensure that with each new row, you have a flat level surface to work on.
  6. Before mortaring and installing, dry fit each stone to ensure it will fit in the desired place.
  7. Using a trowel, apply a ½ inch layer of mortar to the back of the individual stones. Press the stone against the wall, and gently press it into place. If mortar drips onto another stone, wait until the mortar is dry, then brush it off with a dry whisk broom.
  8. Stones can be cut or trimmed for fitting purposes. A power saw with a masonry blade works best. You can also trim small pieces off with a widemouth nipper, or cut a stone in half with the back of your hammer, a trowel, or a hatchet. Cut at an angle so as to best disguise the cut. Cutting can also be concealed through the grouting process.
  9. In extraordinarily hot weather, dampen the back of each stone just prior to installation, as well as the surface to which the stone will be applied. Note that in cold weather below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius), mortar will not cure properly.

Note: For tight fit/dry-stack veneer installation it is suggested to use a Polymer Modified Mortar. 

V. Grouting

  1. Mix a batch of grout according to the recipe and directions given in this manual.
  2. The hole in the tip of the grout bag should be no larger than a ½ inch to begin with. You can always cut the hole bigger if needed, so it is best to start small.
  3. The grout bag should be approximately half full with the mixture. Twist the top end of the bag until some grout is pushed back into the bucket. This will eliminate air bubbles, and help the grout stream to be smooth and consistent.
  4. Keeping the top end twisted, gently squeeze the grout into the joints. Gaps between stones should receive a ½ inch layer of grout.
  5. Let the grout begin to dry until it is firm, but not solid. This usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. Be sure to not let grout fully dry or striking will be impossible.
  6. Use a wooden or metal striking tool to rake out the excess mortar. This helps you achieve the proper depth, and also forces the mortar into the joints to achieve a thorough seal along the stone edges. When striking, the grout should crumble away. If it smears or gathers too much, then it is too wet and needs to dry for a few more minutes.
  7. Use a soft bristled brush to sweep excess dust off the stone and further smooth the joints. Never use wire brushes, and make sure brushes used are dry, as wet brushes, combined with the grout, may stain the rock.

 

 

Polymer Modified Mortar

 

At Kodiak Mountain Stone, we supply SPEC MIX Polymer Modified Stone Veneer Mortar. For information on other brands please inquire with the manufacturer.

 

In March of 2016 we released the following bulletin to our dealers, masons and users of our products:

 

BULLETIN
DATE: MARCH 2016
 
REGARDING: The use of Polymner Modified Mortar for tight-fit/dry stacked veneer installation
 
TO: All Kodiak Mountain Stone Dealers, Installers, and Users:
 
We believe quality stone demands quality installation. Mortar has changed.  We ask that you all stress the importance of using Polymer Modified Mortar for tight-figt/dry stacked veneer installation. These new Polymer Modified Mortars are more workable, and they bond better.
 
Type N or Type S mortar should not be used for installing tight-fit/drystacked installations.  Polymer Modified Mortar should be used for these tight-fit/drystacked installations.  Conventional Type N and Type S mortars are designed for laying up block and brick, and are not required to have high bond strength.  Polymer Modified Mortars on the other hand are made specifically for bonding and provide very high bond strength.  Type N and Type S mortar are adequate for installing stone applications having grouted joints because the grouted joints provide additional bond to the sides of the stones; and also because the grouted joints act as a secondary attachment.  In addition, the grouted joints also seal the stone walls from water accumulation behind the stones which can cause debonding when frozen.  But tight-fit/drystacked stone installations don’t have these grout joint “safety valves”.

 

More About Polymer Modified Mortar:

Ultimate Bond. Non Sagging.

 

SPEC MIX® Polymer Modified Stone Veneer Mortar (PMSVM) is a technologically advanced adhered veneer mortar for use in bonding adhered manufactured stone veneer, natural thin cut stone and thin brick to a cementitious substrate. PMSVM is designed to provide excellent workability, cohesion, high bond strength, sag resistance, water resistance, efflorescence minimization, and durability. SPEC MIX PMSVM is the ideal solution for architects and contractors with projects where an immediate and ongoing need for mortar delivering high bond strength and sag resistance during installation is required. In applications where mortar joints are not utilized,such as dry stack applications, SPEC MIX PMSVM should be used to gain additional bond strength and “pop-off” protection. Installing natural thin cut stone veneer is aided by the unique anti-sag and high bond properties of SPEC MIX PMSVM.

In addition to custom mix designs that are available for specific applications or properties, the SPEC MIX Polymer Modified Stone Veneer Mortar is designed to be compatible with the characteristics of most all specified adhered masonry veneer units. It is acceptable for all types of construction: concrete, masonry, wood frame or steel studs, with submittals available upon request.

Planning Your Renovation

Posted on

 

The secret to a successful home renovation lies in the careful planning and understanding of what you are wanting to achieve. In many cases, your final specifications will be figured out with the help of your contractor, designer or architect. But the more information that you can provide to them about your vision of the renovation, the better they are able to help you bring that vision to life.

 

Here are a few things to consider before meeting with your renovation contractor:

 

  • Do you have a clear vision of the changes you want to make in your home? What is the purpose of your renovation?
  • What are the specific goals of your renovation project?
  • Do you anticipate future changes in your life that could affect what you need in your home?
  • What are the must-haves and what are the nice-to-haves in the vision you have for your renovation?

Once you have spent the time planning through the vision of your renovation you will be in a better position to describe and discuss your ideas with your contractor, designer or architect. What you put into the planning before the renovation begins will make a real difference in the success of your project and your ability to keep within your budget.

Endura Wall System

Posted on

Endura – Standing the Test of…Everything!

No matter what type of application you’re looking for: commercial, residential or industrial/agricultural, the Endura Wall System is a solid choice. The Endura Wall System is an environmentally friendly, durable, mold proof, rot proof, rodent proof, cost competitive, sound deadening, fire resistant alternative to traditional building materials. The Endura Wall System is suitable for many different construction projects, including: single family residential, multi-family residential, institutional, commercial, office, and industrial buildings.

 

1. BLOCK

The block is the primary structural element; however, it also has dramatic thermodynamic properties in its design which features off-set webbed cross-members and a middle linear wall. The offset webs constrict heat flow across the block. Te middle wall also increases compressive strength.

Endura+Block

2. EPS INSERTS

Two layers of EPS molded insulation, are installed as the block is set with one set interlocking the block. These not only effectively insulate the wall, but also help produce the impressive STC 61 sound rating of the system.

EPS+Inserts

 

3. SURFACE BONDING

Surface bonding is applied to both sides of the block. It unifies the block into a solid wall panel as well as creating a water-proof and airtight surface. As such, it is also impervious to termites, insects, rodents, and other pests. The fact that it has the same expansion-contraction coefficient as the block also reduces the possibility of cracking. It becomes a part of the block.

How Does Endura Stack Up To Other Building Options?

We’re often asked how the Endura Wall System compares to other building materials. As you can see from the table below, Endura stacks up quite nicely. If you are looking for a product that is waterproof, extremely durable, rodent proof, termite proof, sound deadening, has high R-value and is fire resistant, then the Endura Wall System will be a perfect fit for you.

FAQ


Is This An ICF (Foam Block System)?

NO! Endura is a concrete block (CMU—concrete masonry unit) with two layers of foam insulation inside the wall. With the concrete mass on the inside and outside of the wall, finish costs are lower, durability is much higher, and thermal performance is more constant.

If There Is No Mortar Used, How Does The Wall Stand Up?

Any CMU wall depends on the compressive strength of the block or brick and the reinforcement grid of rebar and grout for structural performance. Mortar is a levelling and space-filling medium.

How Can I Hang Pictures On The Wall?

Pictures (or other wall hangings—such as cabinets) can be easily attached with masonry hangers (screws) or, in the case or pictures, adhesive hangers work extremely well and do not damage the wall. Plus, there is no need to locate and be dependent on studs. Items such as molding use liquid nail.

Isn’t Endura A Lot More Expensive?

NO! Endura can compete on initial costs with any structural and effectively insulated when compared to an installed wall that:

  1. Is framed—or otherwise constructed
  2. Has outside sheeting
  3. Vapour barriers inside and out
  4. Is insulated
  5. Has electrical installed—or at least conduit
  6. Is sheet rocked, taped, and mudded on the inside
  7. Has a brown coat on the exterior

How Does Endura Perform In And Earthquake?

Endura is a structurally engineered system that conforms to the highest seismic standards.

Where Are The Components Manufactured?

The block is manufactured using Endura molds, at more than 30 locations in the United States. Endura produces the surface bonding and currently has the insulation custom run. Internationally, Endura works with a license holder in creating a production center.

Does A House Look Like A Commercial Building?

Homes built with Endura look the same as any home that you desire both on the inside and out. The same applies to any other building application.

Are There People Who Can Install It Properly?

Endura is extremely labor friendly. If a project is being built in a new area, EMSI will either make available a trainer or an installation crew with guaranteed price, schedule, and quality.

Is This A New Product?

The product maybe new to a customer or an area but it has a 29 year history of use.

Why Haven’t I Heard Of It?

As with many different building methodologies, you may not have heard of it, general advertising has never been an element of marketing it.

It is very common to see a new home with a beautiful stone or brick fireplace. But more and more we are seeing the stone and brick go beyond just the fireplace to create amazing accent walls.
Stone and brick can create beautiful interior feature walls.  It’s not a new idea but it’s one we are seeing a lot more of. With a little bit of creativity and imagination you can create some unique designs that make a normal room extraordinary. Making a boring wall the focal point of the entire room.

It’s amazing how a stone or brick wall can change an entire room to fit your style. It can create a warm environment ranging from a country style to a modern one. With all of the different choices in products, you’ll be able to find the perfect option for your home.

These are some of the most popular options:
Manufactured Stone Veneer is a man-made cast product which is produced to replicate real stone. There are a number of advantages of manufactured stone vs natural stone with the top ones being (1) total cost, (2) ease of installation, and (3) weight of the product.
The total cost of the product and installation of manufactured stone is typically a lot less than with natural stone. Because it is a man-made product, it is manufactured for the ease of installation. Manufactured stone is also lighter weight than natural stone. You should always consult a structural engineer before installing brick or stone in your home, but with manufactured stone you typically don’t need extra structural reinforcement in your home to compensate for the weight of the product.

Natural Stone Veneer is exactly what it sounds like, it is real stone that is cut as a veneer to be installed on a wall. Natural Stone Veneer gives an authentic look with all of the unique characteristics of natural stone that cannot be mimicked in manufactured stone. Natural Stone Veneer is heavier than manufactured stone, so it is even more important to consult a structural engineer about your project before you begin.
Our Natural Stone Veneer is collected and quarried throughout the North America.  There are many styles, profiles and colors of natural stone veneer available for you to choose from for your home.

Most brick that is currently being used on residential interior projects is a Thin Brick Veneer. Thin brick veneer can give your wall the rich, elegant appearance that only brick can provide. Like stone veneer, thin brick veneer is either a cast product or a thin slice of the brick’s face that has been cut from a full brick. Thin brick veneer is installed similar in process to stone veneer rather than how traditional brick is installed.  But when a project is completed, you have the appearance of a beautiful brick wall.

Once you have created a beautiful accent wall in your home with stone or brick help it to become a feature point in your home.
Never neglect skillful lighting.  It will enhance the beautiful textures and features of the brick or stone and will cast shadows that will bring out the unique characteristics of the wall.

Natural Stone from Kodiak Mountain Stone

Posted on

In addition to the various manufactured stone veneer products that we sell at Kodiak Mountain Stone, we have a huge variety of natural stone products to choose from as well.

 

Our natural stone comes from a variety of quarries in both Canada and the United States. This gives us the opportunity to offer a huge variety of different colors and profiles to meet every customers needs and tastes.  Natural stone is an elegant finish for both interior and exterior application on both residential and commercial projects.

 

 

Visit our natural stone photo gallery HERE for some amazing project photos!

 

 

Here are some of the common questions that we are asked about natural stone:

 

  • Is natural stone durable?

Our natural stone veneer is real stone from nature. It is from the earth. Further exposure to natural elements will not harm it. It is possible to see some slight variations over time, but for the most part it should not fade or wear.

 

  • Will all of the colors be consistent through all of the stone?

Natural stone has beautiful vibrancy, life and characteristics.  Every stone is unique and no two stones will be exactly alike. Variations in color can and should be expected with natural stone and it is recommended to obtain a sample of the product before placing an order.

 

  • How do I clean natural stone?

Natural stone can be cleaned with mild, non-acidic cleaners. Do not sue brass or metal brushes or scrapers. Soft bristle brushes are acceptable. Some natural stone can be washed with a pressure washer, but caution should be used since some natural stone has certain characteristics (such as natural moss) that could be damaged by a pressure washer.

 

  • How do I install natural stone?

Installing natural stone is best completed by a professional however installation can be accomplished as a DIY (do-it-yourself) project.  For instructions on proper techniques, recommended tools and materials for your project ask one of our professionals at Kodiak Mountain Stone.

 

 

Many of the natural stone colors and profiles we offer come from independent quarries. However, we also offer beautiful natural stone from these well knows companies:

 

* Eldorado Natural Stone is only available at our Lethbridge AB location in select profiles.
