The challenges of Fixing Large Size Stones/Tiles on Façades

Beautification of building/structure is an expensive project. Owners usually spend a lot of money on maintaining it for a longer duration. A major section of this beautification process is fixing large size Stones /Tiles which play a critical role in the aesthetics of the structure.

Fixing these large size Stone and Tiles are pretty easy on a horizontal surface. But this gets tricky when done on a vertical surface especially when the requirement is to keep it fixed for longer time. The heavy weight of these stones/tiles are a challenge for contractors. These Stone and Tiles pieces are very large and weigh a lot which causes gravity to play its part and results in de-bonding. To hold that much weight on the vertical surface, the contractor only has the support of one side. Too much vertical pressure on the attached side causes Stone/Tiles to fall from the facade. The major reason for this is the formation of polylithic surface /structure and resulting in non-monolithic strength. This leads to cold joints. These joints are the main cause of failures leading to Stone/Tiles falling off the facade. This is a major challenge for the contractors and the only solutions available are either to cut the Stones/Tiles into smaller pieces and then attach or use expensive solutions to fix them. These are not a viable option for customers who are looking for a cost-efficient solution without compromising on the aesthetics of these stones or tiles.
