Dry Stack Installation

A Dry Stack installation is achieved by “dry” fitting each stone before applying the mortar. If this process is done correctly the finished application will have no grout lines. The stones will have a very tight fit and look as if no mortar has been used.
Standard Mortar Joint Masonry Installation

Standard Mortar Joint

A standard mortar joint is a traditional style of masonry that provides recessed grout lines. To achieve this style the semi dry mortar is reshaped with a variety of specialty tools. The final application will have a consistent grout depth and the stones should be evenly spaced approximately 1 finger width apart.
