With these instructions and our easy-to-install Texture Plus® faux stone panels, you'll be able to build a classically romantic wine cellar in time for tonight's dinner party.
What You'll Need
Texture Plus® faux stone panels are easily installed using tools found in almost everyone's toolbox. Here's what you'll need to get started:
- Construction Adhesive/Glue
(we recommend PL® Premium Construction Adhesive)
- Screwdriver (battery-operated/electric preferred)
- Sandpaper or sanding block
- Caulking gun
- Texture Plus® color-matched caulk
Texture Plus® simulated stone siding should be installed on solid backing. To install faux panels, simply run a bead of adhesive along the back of each faux stone panel and at each end. Make sure to spread the adhesive with a spackle knife or other appropriate tool. Use enough adhesive so that the entire surface of the cut edge at each end is covered. We strongly recommend use of construction adhesive and screws in every joint. All joints should be butt joints on straight runs and mitered joints in corners.
Begin by installing the interlocking faux stone panels on the lower right side of the wall. Trim the "fingers" to create a straight edge. To install the faux stone siding, use glue and fasteners. Next, slide the next panel into the first. Dry fit the panel first without any adhesive to make sure it aligns properly. If you need to make any adjustments, you can trim or sand the faux stone panel to create a tighter fit. The next step is to apply adhesive and install the rest of this course of stone panels. When you reach the end on the left hand side, trim the panel at the appropriate point. Take the leftover piece and bring it to the right side and stack it on top of the previous level. This will help you offset the point where the panels join. Continue until you have covered the entire area. For a final finish, use Texture Plus® color-matched caulk to fill all screw holes and space in the WeatherSeal joint. Smooth caulk and wipe away any excess (a wet rag works well) and finish the seams of the wall to complete the project.

- We recommend using PL® Premium Construction Adhesive during installation.
