    Adhered natural and manufactured stone veneer is increasing in popularity as an architectural element in both commercial and residential construction. The paper provides a brief overview of building code requirements, mortar specifications, back-up substrates, veneer application, and tips to avoid material failures. Building code requirements are based on typical references in the Uniform Building Code, International Building Code and Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures. Mortar specifications are based on references as stated in the building codes, ASTM Standard Specification for Mortar for Unit Masonry (C 270), and typical manufacturer’s specifications. Back-up substrates are discussed in regards to building code requirements and ASTM standards for weather-resistive barriers, metal lath or mesh and corrosion resistant fasteners. Veneer application and finishing guidelines as based on building codes and typical manufacturer specifications. Discussions of tips to avoid failure are based on good workmanship and material selection.
