Frequently Asked Questions
How do I properly calculate the materials I will require for my project?
First Measure the square footage of the total area that is to be covered by stone. If you are using corners on your project, plan for each linear foot of corner pieces to cover 3/4 square foot of the area. For Example: If you have 100 square foot wall with an 8 foot corner, the corner pieces would cover 6 square feet of wall. Subtracting 6 from 100, you would need 94 square feet of flat stone and 8 linear feet of corners.
