Field Stone - Rustic
Mountain View Stone field stone rustic is a classic natural stone profile. The authentic rugged character captured in this pattern is truly remarkable. The timeless shapes and textures of field stone are reminiscent of stones found on farms across the country. Field stone is also known as random rock and is commonly combined with other patterns such as ledge stone to create an old-style rustic look. Field stone is a stone veneer product measuring 1" to 2" thick and therefore thinner than traditional stone siding for easier, lighter handling. All our manufactured stone veneer products are suitable for interior applications such as stone accent walls or stone fireplaces as well as exterior applications such as stone veneer siding. Mountain View Stone field stone is available in boxes of 10 square foot flats, boxes of 6 lineal foot matching corners, and 150 square foot bulk crates.

In order to achieve the desired natural stone finish as shown in our images it is up to the installer to arrange the individual stones in the correct pattern and install each stone one at a time.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What is the average weight compared to a non faux stone? 1/2 the weight?
Thank you for your question and interest in our stone veneer. The weight difference really depends on the thickness of the natural stone. If you are comparing to a thin cut natural stone, then yes, our stone would be around half the weight. The thicker the natural stone the greater the weight difference will be. Our stone veneer weighs roughly 8lbs per square foot. Please let us know if you have any more questions.
I’d like to use it in my master shower, is that possible?
Thank you for your question and interest in our stone veneer. You can use any of our stone veneer or brick veneer for a shower. We recommend our stone veneer and brick veneer are sealed when used in a shower. A concrete sealer is not required, however, sealing with a concrete sealer will add protection especially over the mortar joints. Please keep in mind that different concrete sealers will affect the appearance of the stone veneer. A matte (or flat) finish will have little to know impact to the finished look of the stone veneer whereas a gloss finish will darken the stone veneer and have a wet look. We recommend testing your concrete sealer on a piece of stone veneer that has not been installed to ensure you are happy with the finished appearance after applying concrete sealer. Our installation instructions can be downloaded at https://mountainviewstone.net/pages/post-purchase-support. For the surface prep, which is the most important step, you will need to install a moisture barrier and then install wire lath over that. Make sure the nails or screws for wire lath hit studs to ensure a good foundation. Your scratch coat goes over the wire lath and then the stone veneer. We recommend our stone veneer and brick veneer be installed with Type S mortar. Mortar is recommended for installation opposed to an adhesive as mortar is cheaper than adhesive, and when installing with an adhesive you must hold the stone in place until the adhesive sets which really slows down installation time, whereas mortar instantly holds. Please let us know if you have any more questions.
We received the samples, and they look great. Just a question, does each individual stone have to get placed and glued to the foundation or do you have some sort of template with many rocks so that only one piece needs to get glued onto the foundation?
Thank you for your question and interest in our stone veneer. Our field stone profile is not a panel system, they are individual stones. There are 10 square feet of flats per box and 6 lineal feet of corners per box. The individual stones will vary in size, shape, and thickness. To achieve the desired natural stone finish as shown in our images it is up to the installer to arrange the individual stones in the correct pattern and install each stone one at a time. If you are looking for a panel system, our ready stack is a mini panel stone product and is installed in sections at a time https://mountainviewstone.net/collections/ready-stack. Each panel measures 4” high but will vary in length (5.5”, 8.25”, 11”, 16.5”) and thickness (1.5-2.5”). Each ready stack panel has multiple stones on each panel face. To achieve the desired finish as shown in our images it is up to the installer to arrange the panels in the correct pattern and install each panel one at a time. Please let us know if you have any more questions.
We bought a house with and accessory building that has about 5,000 square feet of what I believe is your field stone rustic. Do you have a picture of the back side of one? Does it have parallel groves on it? We are building a small unit and want to cover the building with similar stone, approximately 300 square feet.
