How to attach natural stone facing to a concrete block pier.

The traditional method of attaching natural stone facing to a concrete block pier is mortar. The process is labour intensive. You have to mix sand, cement and water to form a mortar that has to be applied with a trowel to either the stone facing or pier surface to attach the natural stone facade. For extensive jobs a cement mixer is used to speed up the mortar making process and it might require several skilled workers to complete the task. There is extra expense in either hiring or purchasing a mixer to do the job and the operation is a dirty messy procedure that requires preparation and clean up. The stone mason and DIY aficionado wonders if there is not an easier alternative to this laborious conventional method. Thankfully a revolutionary adhesive solution is now available to replace the whole paraphernalia of the historic stone facing process. An extremely strong heavy duty adhesive has been invented by a Company well known for its inventory of successful sealants and adhesives developed with the Construction sector in mind. It is a total replacement for all mechanical fixings and supports and replaces the need for mortar to adhere the stone facing to the concrete block pier. Its efficiency is startlingly good and it has de facto become the adhesive of choice for increasing numbers of industrial operatives across all trades and industries.
