Faux stone is a fairly inexpensive choice for exterior siding when compared to real stone masonry. It gives a natural appearance, and maintenance is easy as cleaning can be accomplished by having it pressure washed. Installation is simple and cutting is just as easy if you know how to do so. This article will cover how to go about cutting faux stone.
Things You'll Need
- Faux stone Circular saw or side grinder Masonry blade for saw or grinder Grease pencil
Attach masonry blade to either saw or grinder.
Mark the cut to be made with the grease pencil.
Cut the faux stone with the saw or grinder.
Repeat as necessary for the rest of the cuts that need to be made.
Tips & Warnings
- If you're using plastic stone siding instead of cast stone, cutting can be accomplished using a circular saw with the blade turned backward. This prevents the teeth of the blade from damaging the material.
- Always exercise caution when using power tools.
