I hope you don't mind me asking but can you share the ballpark figure you paid for installation please?

Well, we had it installed at the same time that he did our mosaic backsplash, so I don't have an exact breakdown of each. So it was more than $500 but less than a $1000, which is what we were quoted by a masonry company called Alitalia (or something like that). The latter's price included replacing the existing drywall with cement board, which we opted to NOT do with Fab Tile Co (hence the lower price).

I'd do it for anyone for $500. It's really a pretty easy job. All you need to do is rent a tile saw from Home Depot and buy the materials. Then you're set to go!

What are people mounting the fake stone too. Apparently you should not be instilling this type of product over drywall. Should be rough plywood, cement board or something similar. The weight of the stone can cause the paper from the drywall to rip off.

This is true. If you go over about 8/9' you should be installing it on a solid surface. Check your product's specs. We've done our fireplace and due to the height, had to remove the drywall. We're going to do a wall in our dining room as well to tie the two spaces together and I think we'll remove the drywall there as well. Personal choice there, but I'd stick with whatever your product recommends. We used RealStone and are very pleased with it.

Mine is fine over the drywall, given the height of the room.

I'll be following the manufacturer's recommendation when we do ours.

If you want a recommendation of an installer, PM me. I have a friend and I also have the installer who did my fireplace stone work through the builder.
