decobrik


Just looking if anyone has used DecoBrik stone before? http://decobrik.com/en/produits.php . Cosco has it really cheap per box. But when look at the install manual on the site it says to attach it to drywall directory with some sort adhesive and not lath/scractch/thinset ??

Wouldn't the only strengh holding the stone on the wall be the paper of the drywall?

Yes it would. But once all dry, and assuming its level, I don't think it will jump off the wall. Never done this, but I have seen walls tiled commercially over sheetrock. I guess this would be the same principle.

The “answer” to OP question is right there on the link “he” posted.

I'm sure the answers you seek are there too.
