Electrical box extenders


Hello,The question I have is,, should I install the box extender before I have the wall remodeled with the stone or after the stone is installed. The extender is for a wall outlet. Thanks in advance.

I prefer to do it after, just make sure they don't cover it

Do it prior to the stone to avoid problems with the stone impinging upon the existing box.
