Installation & Maintenance

Installing Pro-Fit® Terrain™ Ledgestone is easy and quick. All of the smalls stones have already been grouped by Boral’s masons, and they’re ready to install. The stone veneer can be installed on most structurally sound wall surfaces. Because Pro-Fit® Terrain™ Ledgestone is light weight and adheres quickly, additional footings and wall ties are not required. This means that Cultured Stone® can be installed in applications where traditional full stone will not work.

Pro-Fit® Terrain™ Ledgestone requires almost no maintenance. Abrasives, pressure-washing, acid cleaning, and sandblasting should be avoided. All Cultured Stone® requires, to keep looking great year after year, is an occasional light wash to remove accumulated dirt and dust.
