Veneer Replacement does not happen often; but, as modern buildings that used veneers age, the frequency may increase. This detail shows the replacement of a 45 year old 24"x24"x2" stone veneer. The anchors corroded, which led to deterioration of the stone veneer as the corrosion expanded and cracked the faces of the veneer panels. In some places the anchors were no longer in tact to hold the stone in place.
The Veneer Replacement System that was selected was ARRIS•clip Renaissance® Units by Arriscraft. In this case the tricky part was that there was a story of brick veneer above that had been partially bearing on the stone veneer. The detail shows how we designed a custom stainless steel 'TEE' to transfer the support of the brick to the concrete foundation wall.
The key issues that the detail resolves are:
- This detail is needed to specify the configuration, construction and materials required for the veneer replacement.
- This detail requires further specifications covering these conditions.
- You may want a specification covering the quality and installation aspects of these materials.
- These details should be placed on the Exterior Details sheet, the A501 or AE501 series of sheets per the National CAD Standards, contrary to the designation shown here.
