    Default Masonry over siding material

    This is a DIY. The siding is an old particle board siding almost like OSB. The owner is installing stone over the siding after installing a building paper (15min paper). Any thoughts.

    Wow, it would be interesting to see how he treats door and window openings. Seems like he watched too many HGTV shows.
    - are the wall ties galv or stainless
    - are the nails galv or stainless
    - that looks like regular chicken wire not the wire mesh generally used for various types of veneer work
    - did he actually pour any kind of foundation under the stones
    - is he using an admix in the mortar
    - there doesn't appear to the an air gap between the stone wall and org wall. Natural stones can suck up a lot of water. 15# felt isn't going to hold up long. Should be an air gap and tyvek type paper.
    - has he given an thought to drainage
    - has he consulted with anyone on his mortar mix composition
    - is it going all the way up
    - WHY?
    Just some initial thoughts
