Cultured stone over vinyl siding


I am removing my vinyl cedar shake siding and wanting to install cultured stone on the exterior of my home. I am repairing a leak and want to replace the siding with stone. Please advise with any suggestions. I currently have sheathing with Tyvek over the top.

I'd be consulting the install info with the manufacturer of the faux stone, not counting on advice posted here that could come from anybody on the planet.

Cultured stone over vinyl siding


expect to use expanded wire mesh properly attached to the wall,,, you may also need to attach the stone mechanically & might even need a brick ledge, too,,, we often do that on our planet :-)
