Scratch coat for veneer stone


My neighbor and I are discussing a project he is getting underway with this morning. He is putting up some exterior veneer stone and bought a bunch of Quikrete Motar Mix, planning on using this for his scratch coat. I thought he needed a specific type of mix for the coat. Who is correct? The Quikrete web site doesn't say you can't, but it also isn't mentioned as something you can use either.

Scratch coat for veneer stone


As long as it's the "Type S Mason's Mix", it will be just fine for the scratch coat, and could be used for the adhering of the stones, as well as the grouted joints if you'd like..........
