Weep screed behind natural stone cladding
I was wondering what if any sort of air space or water run-off space I would need to put behind a natural stone wall. I have read so many different ideas that range from not needing one to needing one.
I live in northeastern Ontario CAD. and our winters can get quite severe. At present I have a natural pine siding on one wall and want to tear it off and apply a natural stone veneer. The stones are directly from the ground and are mostly granite.
I understand all the present needs of an appropriate footing for their weight as well as the, typar house wrap lath and scratch coatings, etc required to build this, but am left wondering how or what if any do I use for a air gap between the wall (plywood cladding) and the stone veneer?
