Natural Stone Ledger Panels

Natural Stone & Tile Ledger panels are trimmed pieces of natural ledger stone affixed together to form modular panels, which allows for the streamlined installation of dry stacked ledge stone veneer. Natural stone veneer panels feature a unique joint design that becomes virtually undetectable after installation. We offer these panels in two styles: Natural stone ledger stepped panels and “L“ ledger stepped panel corners for outside corner.

Stepped Panels

Stepped Panels are designed to interlock together like puzzle pieces. Panel A will lock into Panel B and so on for seamless fit

Installation Instructions

Natural Stone Ledger Panels can be used to create beautiful stone veneer on interior or exterior walls. Substrate should be structurally sound, clean, dry and free of debris. Substrate can be cement block wall or cement board attached to wall.

1. Working from the bottom of the wall upward, coat the wall with 0.5inch plus layer of mortar, covering slightly more than the width of each panel

2. Apply layer of mortar to the back of the ledger

panel and press the panel firmly in place. To ensure maximum bond of each panel to the wall surface, use a rubber mallet to tap each ledger panel in to its final position

3. Repeat step # 2, adding panels in a linear direction ( end-to-end, rather than stacking ) to create multiple layers of panels until the desired height is reached.

4. Standard 6x24” Natural Ledger Panels feature Stepped Cut design which creates a seamless look, as random stone pieces were set by a craftsman.

5. To protect your stone from stains and spills, we recommend sealing the stone surfaces.
