Install Basics

While Polyurethane has minimal expansion and contraction, all products must be allowed to acclimate 48 hours minimum prior to installing. 


Never leave cut edges of NextStone™ exposed as the Polyurethane will discolor with exposure to sunlight. Use Touch Up Paint to cover cut edges.


Quality deck screws or stainless steel screws are recommended with a minimum of 6 screws per panel. 


Adhesive is NOT required for installation. PL Premium Construction Adhesive is recommened if adhesive is used.


NextStone™ panels can be installed onto any substrate including concrete and brick. Concrete screws and pre-drilled holes are recommended.


4' Metal Starter Strips are needed to begin the first course/row of panels.

Metal Building Install 

When installing on a steel building, a backer board should be used so that all required attachment points have a secure backing.


This is necessary because the recessed rails of the corrugated steel panels often fall in areas where panels or accessories need to be securely fastened.


The substrate should be a backer board or OSB of at least ½" thick. This board needs to be attached securely to the building using a construction adhesive and screws.


Use appropriate whether proof substrate or sheathing as per local codes.


Then proceed as per normal installation instructions.
