I live in a house with cement rock as decoration on part of an outside
wall and inside around a fireplace.
Recently a patch of the 'rock' and mortar both outside and inside have
falling off. I can see a metal mess below and cement/mortar.
How do I stick the big pieces back onto these fake rock walls?
The areas to patch are small and I have the chunks that fell off.
Thanks so much.
Faux stone on a ceiling? Is any architect/building designer and/or local
code inspector THAT stupid? Sculptured plaster/stucco, or
fiberglass/plastic panels with actual mechanical attachements, maybe.
But even in a mud bed over chicken wire, anything with any weight is
going to fall at some point. Hell, they even require those epoxied-in
steel pins on thin-layer stone veneer on commercial buildings, now.
There is an epoxy cement available but I can't say if this is the proper
application for it. Why not give a concrete specialty store a call. I
bought some at one for a spalling sidewalk 10years ago and not one of those
patches has come off. This piece of 'crete sees a truck and plow pushing
over it each winter. Lots of blade marks but it's still intact.
