What Separates Wet And Dry Installation Of Natural Stone Cladding?

by Asian Stones Owner

Stone cladding materials are used to spruce up the front facade. It is also widely used for flooring, pavement, and even a range of interior cladding options. It makes the space look beautiful, and you would desire such an installation at your place. There are two ways for someone to plan a structure. There is the wet and dry installation method and let us discuss both of them.


The Wet installation Method


This form of natural stone cladding is referred to as the direct adhered method. It is a common method, and it is easy. Here are some reasons why this form of the cladding of natural stone is popular.

  • It is the cheaper stone clad method and ideal for business houses searching for cost curtailing opportunities.
  • We have spoken that it is easy, and it is because the work lacks any onsite drilling.
  • Since this does not involve any drilling, there is also no chance of cracks on the walls.
  • This form of cladding bonds nicely from edge to edge. There is just no space left, and that makes it more even.



Does wet installation have any defects?


Before selecting this form of cladding for natural stone, one will want to know whether it lacks any deficiencies. There are some concerns, and let me share with you the details.

  1. This form of natural stone cladding offers edge-to-edge bonding, and there is no room for expansion.
  2. The bond between the wall and adhesive should be intact, or else the stone can fall off.
  3. The work process should take some time.


An Insight Into The Dry Installation Method


This process of installation of natural stone cladding is known as mechanical installation. The work involves the use of embedded metal anchors and tiles for connection purposes. There is drilling work necessary here, and for that purpose, the stone must be thick. Here are the benefits of this form in stone installation work.

  • It is a safe method, and the stone should not fall over for years.
  • The stone can expand, contract in extreme weather conditions.
  • The appearance of the stone looks spotless and perfect for installation if you are eager to have something, which is aesthetically pleasing.
  • It is quick to install.


There are a few defects of this form of classing with natural stone, and it is a bit expensive. The holes need to be drilled properly, or everything will go to waste. The process requires highly skilled labor. It requires alert drilling, or the process can be harmful, which is why we insist on skilled artistry.


Conclusion: We have discussed both natural stone cladding options, and both have their benefits and disadvantages. You surely need to assess the cost and longevity factor before decking upon an opportunity for the premise. After the installation work is done by a professional, the space should look beautiful and aesthetically pleasing.
