Versetta Stone

Versetta Stone is a stone veneer siding panel that is mortarless and cement-based.  Its panelized design is installed with mechanical fasteners, allowing carpenters and contractors to recreate the beauty and craftsmanship of authentic stone masonry, using nails or screws.

With a combination of lightweight concrete, basic aggregate, water, & mineral oxide pigments, the master craftsmen can not only mimic the look of natural stone, but also improve upon it with more consistent color, quality & weight.

Versetta Stone – a mortarless stone veneer, available in three profiles, with a modern installation method, which can be used for either exterior OR interior uses!

Getting Started

  • Designed for application over wood framing, spaced 16″ on center
  • Use code-approved, nailable sheathing products with a minimum thickness of 7⁄16″ for OSB or 1/2″ for plywood
  • Install over Water Resistive Barrier (WRB) according to local building codes
  • Install Starter Strip perfectly level at your starting point line
  • Lap WRB over starter strip nail flange


Fastening Versetta Stone Panels

  • Panels are installed from bottom to top and lapped in shingle fashion so the tongue seats completely in the groove
  • Stagger panels to avoid the alignment of vertical joints
  • Each panel requires a minimum of 4 fasteners when the length is greater than 18”
  • Panels greater than 18″ should have 2 of the 4 fasteners into framing
  • Use corrosion-resistant galvanized roofing nails
  • Or, use screws with 3⁄8″ minimum head diameter and ⅛” shank with a length to penetrate the framing at least 1”

Cutting Panels

  • Straight and angle cuts can be made with any of the cutting tools listed above
  • Cut panels with the tongue facing the fence
  • Trimming and staggered cuts are best made with a hand grinder utilizing a masonry blade
  • Holes can be made with a masonry hole saw, drill or grinder with a masonry blade

Installing Universal Corners

  • Universal Corners must be cut into 2 pieces to create a left and right
  • Cut random lengths to assist with creating a staggered appearance
  • Start at bottom of wall and position one half of a Universal Corner, nail flange up, cut edge away from corner, into the Starter Strip
  • The standard Flat Panel side tongue will need to be removed in order for the Flat Panel to tightly seat against the Universal Corner
  • Fine tune the corner appearance with slight adjustments of both pieces until you get the best fit.
