The work of the edges and corners on the stone veneer

When laying StoneLeaf’s 100% natural stone veneer in your home, you may need to cover corners and work on edge bands to complete your room.
Below you will find all our tips for this quick and easy cutting work. The stone veneer can be worked like a laminate.

Which tools to use ?

In order to work on your edges and corners, you will need a few indispensable tools : 

  • For cutting : circular saw with diamond or carbide blade
  • For sanding : an eccentric or vibrating sander, grit 150 or a trimmer
  • For internal angles : silicone sealant.

The cutting

For external angles, allow the sheet to exceed a few millimeters, remove the excess glue and then, after drying, adjust with a trimmer equipped with a rolling cutter with a carbide blade.

The trimming

It is also possible to flush using an eccentric or vibrating sander equipped with 150 grit (Attention, because of the fineness of the leaf, the sanding is fast).

The internal angles

For internal angles, it is recommended to lay a first sheet and then come and adjust the second. Make a joint using a colored silicone adapted to the type of stone. Many colors are available.
