Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster.
I am to the point of putting hardibacker on my island and have a question (oK a few questions). I have seen a few other threads discussing stone over hardibacker but none that exactly matched what I am doing so I apologize if I missed something.
I plan on putting El Dorado Veneer Stone on the outside of the island. The El Dorado website shows a requirement of Water Resistivie Barrier, lath, scratch coat etc.
From what I have read here and seen in pictures of what guys are doing it looks like most are putting cement glue over the hardibacker then the scratch coat.
Will this work for veneer?
Will the cement glue seal the hardi and the corners over the tape where there are small gaps?
Is the scratch coat basically the morter that bonds the stone and the hardibacker or is there somehting after the scratch coat?
Again, thanks for all that I have learned on this and other forums.
I am in San Diego if that makes a difference.
