Note:  Water-resistive barrier must be used on all exterior and interior mortar applications. Waterresistive barrier is not required for application over masonry or concrete.

Instructions for EZ-FIT Ledgestone.

Products are applied starting from the bottom and working up. Start each EZ-FIT Ledgestone course level and continue horizontally completing each course before starting the next.  If required, cut the appropriate size component to fit at the end or top of the finish area. Frequently check the installation for level and alignment.

Install Corner Pieces First.

If your application requires corner pieces, start by installing a corner piece first, followed by the adjoining flat pieces. Notice that the corner pieces have a long and short leg. Alternate these in opposite directions.

 Cleaning Finished Job.

 At the end of the work day, or when mortar is sufficiently set up, the finished job should be broomed or brushed to remove loose mortar and to clean the face of the stone. A wet brush or sponge should never be used to treat the mortar joints as this will cause staining that will be difficult, or impossible, to remove. Do not use acid or acid-based products.
