Hockey and a fire…

AirStone was so easy to work with around around a mantel, crown molding, decorative light switches, a hearth, etc.  Note the detailed carving I had to do around the mantel molding. No possible way that level of detailed carving could have been done on real stone. The AirStone let me shape the bricks exactly as needed with a dremel.   — Joe

Seal your backsplash!

By admin2 in Finished ProjectsComments (0)

Just a reminder that like natural stone, AirStone can absorb food splatters and/or grease. We do recommend applying a sealer when using AirStone as a kitchen backsplash, or an outdoor kitchen.  Use a high-quality brand for concrete, masonry, or porous stone.  Apply to a test piece first, to make sure the results are what you want (some sealers and enhancers can darken the stone).  Sealers are available in a high gloss, a light gloss, or absolutely no gloss at all.  Follow the manufacturer’s directions and reapply as instructed (in general, it’s best to apply a THIN coat and let it dry thoroughly before applying another coat).  Thanks to Matt for sharing his Spring Creek backsplash project photo with us!

HUGE difference

We had quite a bit of exposed foundation and after much research, we decided to go with AirStone. We are extremely pleased with the results and it really is a HUGE difference with the stone work. We would recommend AirStone to anyone looking to add stone work to their home.  –Corey

I finished my project and I love, love, love how it turned out. This stone is the most natural looking stone I have found.  Would I do this again and use AirStone?  Absolutely!  Only, I would wait until I could do the cutting and sanding outside!  A lot of dust was worth the trouble, however! Besides, I usually don’t wait to do anything!    — Alisa

Recently finished renovating my fireplace. This took about 20 hours total. Our fireplace was alright but a bit bland. I started by ripping the existing tile and mantle out. For the new mantle, I built a faux beam from some pine planks and in it installed four recessed LED lights. The beam took longer than what followed which was to lay a flagstone hearth and install your AirStone product from floor to ceiling. It made quite a difference!   — Rudy

So much easier than I thought!

We used Airstone to easily reface our dated “80’s” tile fireplace surround and hearth with an attractive wall of Airstone. It took my husband and I two weekends to replace the tile with Airstone, using the Airstone adhesive and about 8 boxes of Airstone. Once we finished gluing the Airstone to the wall and front of the hearth, we added a Pennsylvania bluestone hearthstone to “cap” the hearth – the entire hearth is 17 feet wide. Finally, we added a rough hewn mantle we created from distressed timber, to replace the federal style mantel we removed prior to beginning the project. We love our new Airstone feature wall and hearth. It was so much easier than I thought it would be to accomplish and the results are really professional in nature!  — Renata
