Kasey: I checked with a Stone/Tile Contractor for their opinion of adhering 18" square granite tiles to a four story concrete frame structure. They responded that the size of the tiles proposed would permit an adhered installation per the requirements of UBC Chapter 14. The two men with whom I spoke could only recall one such installation but had no recollection of its performance as either good or bad. (No news is probably good news.) However they did recall that the entire building had metal lath shot to the concrete structure with a mortar scratch coat applied to true out the building surfaces and to provide a backing with more tooth. The veneer was attached with a thin set adhesive. Virtually all of their installations of stone veneers are mechanically anchored and typically involved larger stones which exceed the maximum size permitted by Code to be adhered. Hope this has been of some help. Regards, Brent Koch, P.E. Livermore, CA ----------------------------------------------------------- K.

The Granites are 18"x18"x3/4" and the contractor prefers to install them by adhesive agent (without using mechanical fasteners) directly on the exposed concrete. If you have some recommendations, please advise. Thanks in Advance K. (Casey) Hemmatyar, P. Eng. Vancouver, B.C.
