How to Install
Time Lapse
  • Planning Your Project
    Laying your materials out on the ground before attaching any GenStone to the wall is the easiest way to plan your project.
  • Snapping a Chalk Line
    Snapping a chalk line before installing your first GenStone panel will help ensure a level install.
  • Attaching a Corner
    Start your GenStone install by working left to right. In this case we will start with a corner piece. Our corner piece creates a simple transition around a 90º corner. It is designed to fit seamlessly with a full or half panel.
  • Measuring a Panel for Cut
    From inception through the completion of your install, accurate measurements are the first step in a successful GenStone project.
  • Cutting a Panel
    After drawing a cut line, you can cut your GenStone panel with either a circular saw or hand saw. In this case, we will demonstrate how easily a circular saw can cut a panel to size.
  • Hand Saw Cutting a Panel
    You don't need to own or know how to use a circular saw to cut your panels to size. Watch how easily a hand saw cuts through a GenStone panel.
  • Applying Adhesive
    We recommend using construction adhesive in addition to screwing your GenStone panels to the wall.
  • 90º Corner and Next Panel
    Learn how to transition from a 90º corner panel to a full GenStone panel during your installation.
  • Attaching Panels to the Wall
    After making sure your panel is level, attach your GenStone by placing screws in the positive shiplap edge.
  • Face Screwing a Panel
    After attaching your GenStone panel to the wall we recommend inserting a few face screws 2 inches from the bottom and top.
  • Caulking Ship Lap
    Caulking the ship lap after your panel is attached to the wall is easy and will provide a professional finish.
  • Attaching an Inside Corner
    Installing an inside corner is the easiest way to transition between to inside facing walls.
  • Applying a Ledger
    Installing a GenStone ledger is easy and it provides not only a professional looking finish but also moisture shedding properties.
