How to Install Rockford Veneer on Home Exterior Using Rainscreen

Natural, durable, and aesthetically pleasing, there’s little wonder why thin stone veneers have become a popular choice of masonry material with homeowners. The benefits are widely recognized and contractors are finding there’s a huge payoff in customer satisfaction (and property values).

What you put behind the stone matters just as much as the stone itself. Rainwater infiltration or plain atmospheric moisture can get trapped behind, and within the veneer wall’s nooks and crannies. This osmosis can lead to hydrostatic pressure or movement in the substrate that can push stone off the walls or “pop”. A drainage layer is key to getting moisture out and keeping it out. In this video, we show how rainscreen products help mitigate the risk associated with adhered veneers. Just remember to keep ‘drain on the brain’!
