How to use Versi Flags

Versi Flags are coated with sandstone on one side and slate on the other.
  1. Choose which side you wish to use.
  2. Paint the background of the area you wish to clad, we find that dark colours usually look best. If you aren't sure do a sample square on card first.
  3. Lay the flags out until you are happy with their position.
  4. Glue flags in place with tacky glue, Uhu or PVA adhesive. If you use PVA you may find that the flags curl slightly, if so, when you have finished your floor put a heavy weight on top to flatten them.
