Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeff Looks great
Looks great on my outdoor kitchen. Very happy with the stone, you do need a good tile saw to cut. Some of the corner piece would broke but was still able to sue them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Take care and plan ahead when opening.
These will come broken(1/2-1/3) of mine. Plan ahead if you are going to use them. They went into the box unbroken so the pieces are approximated in their location. Before removing I would suggest you get your hot glue gun ready. As you remove each piece, immediately repair it. This will avoid you having to put together a jigsaw puzzle later. Keep pieces from each box separate until all reassembled. It's a shame they are glued together so poorly. Mine came very dark with little if any golden color. Mostly grey. Have not installed them yet. I had them delivered to store so I could open there and decide if I wanted to proceed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stoneman Love the final look, product and packaging was TERRIBLE
The stone itself looks awesome now that it is up. However, we had a contractor install it and we had to reorder twice to get good corner pieces. And that set the contractor back and the job took weeks instead of a day or two. The corner pieces we ordered were all broken, seemingly as though a customer brought back odd pieces in a box to get credit and the boxes were just sent back out without being checked. We also did not take into account the footage based on the corners being longer that higher - it should be stated on package! So we had to reorder twice and the contractor was quite frustrated. However, the final job looks fantastic!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Easy product to work with
Easy to work with, nice finish. Applied the stone to backer board using thinset mortar. Rock solid. Just make sure you clean up any thinset that squeezes out before it dries. The only thing I wish they sold was capping. Most of what you find is too thick or too wide. I bought bricks and sliced them to create my capping.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Manteca order extra
First order was 5 boxes. Every piece was broken except 1. Returned to home depot and ordered 5 more. Some were broken but I had enough to finish my project. End result looks great and home depot customer service and returns were helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Older Not the quality I expected
I would recommend this product with reservations.
We purchased these corners for the front side edges of our house that we were rocking. We had them delivered to the house. Two boxes of the 9 delivered were all broken up, unsalvageable. The biggest problem, however, was trying to get them lined up. We were using these corner pieces to go from the garage door to just around the corner and from the entrance door to just around the corner. We started with the garage first. We had to cut each end of each piece. The longer side to butt up against the garage door. The shorter end to go just around the corner for about 2" (Not all of the sides were the same length when we cut off the "L" on the shorter side). I would measure the top of the corner and cut only to find that it was short once I held it up to the garage door. Several times there would be a lump of dried glue or a piece of the rock that hadn't been cut the same thickness as the others. Even being aware of this, often times it would throw the cut off up to 1/4th inch. More often I would find that the angle of the corner was more than 90 degrees. It would need a lot of mortar to fill in the back. Sometimes as we'd cut, a large chunk of rock would break apart. We were using a decent wet tile saw to cut these pieces. This rock is, for the most part, just fragile. I could fairly easily piece the straight ledger rock to go across the front of the house, but the corners were different. It was much more difficult to keep the cracks/breaks from showing. Another issue we had with the corners was that if the front wall was level the side might not be. The corner seemed warped sometimes. It would take us 3 times more mud to feel like we had a good seal between the wall and the stone.
We are now not doing the 2nd side edge with the corner stones. A) We won't have enough pieces with all of the breakage we had, and B) I can get a tighter fit to the entry door if I don't have to involve the corner. Oh, and C) it's a lot more cost effective to not put the corners on. I'm not sure we'll get any credit back if the rock cracked and fell apart as we were cutting.
I will say what we've done looks beautiful. We've had so many compliments on it. It's a lot of hard work and takes much longer than we expected. The rock does tend to just break apart when you cut the stones, or even pick them up out of the boxes. If you're good at putting puzzle pieces together, you can make most of the pieces work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FoothillsBlondie Great looking tiles
Purchased this tile to replace wood wall on lower half of a sunroom exterior. Looks great and will last a lot longer than the wood, with less maintence.
