How do I install my textured 3d cladding panels to achieve neat corners/ edges?
Asked by... Adam from Norwich

The Question

We have ordered some textured 3d slate cladding, and we need this to cover a raised chimney breast, can you tell us how to achieve correct corners / edges? Do you cut and overlap or is there a key to getting the edges looking nice.

The Answer

Hello Adam

There are a few different ways in which to install these tiles, with no real right or wrong way. They have previously been mitred; when tiling a chimney breast the sides can be adhered first, so the tiles placed on the front of the breast will cover the sawn edge of the adjoining tiles, alternatively they can be 'toothed' which basically means that the cladding panels will overlap each (similar to a dovetail joint).

I hope this makes sense to you Adam but if you have any further queries please call our sales team on 01283 730388.
