The great thing about using faux stone on your irregular or angled walls is that faux stone panels are simple to install. Once they are up, they are long-lasting, robust, and in need of little maintenance.
Once you’ve chosen your faux stone style (keep reading for a few ideas) then you’ll need to take your measurements to know how much material you need to order.
To cut the faux stone panels to size, you’ll just need a saw. To fix the boards in place, all you require for GenStone panels are the right screws and a power drill. Detailed instructions are provided of course, but the unique paneling system means that once cut, everything slots quickly into place.
The lightweight nature of the faux stone makes it great for angled walls that wouldn’t otherwise be able to support the weight of real stone or brick veneers. For this type of angled wall, you can work from the bottom upwards, ensuring that every panel is securely fastened.
You can even tackle curved walls, although you will need to have a little more patience and DIY experience than for a simpler angled wall. For curved walls, you need to install the faux stone panels in smaller segments, as you need to work your designs into the curve.
This takes time and more precise cutting to make sure that the faux stone follows the natural contours of the curve and doesn’t produce sharper angles or disjointed seams.
