Case Study of the new San Diego PETCO Ballpark, which reviews scratch and brown and cementitous backerboard unit methods with good quality control procedures.  Ceramic Tile Exterior Veneers (Facade) Adhered failures, Glass Tile Exterior Veneer (Facades) Adhered failures, or Stone Exterior Veneers (Facades) Adhered failures can lead to lawsuits and huge losses.  It doesn’t matter whose fault it is because everyone involved will pay one way or the other in dollars, time and reputation.  To avoid ceramic tile exterior facade failures or glass tile exterior facade failures or stone exterior facade failures to include limestone exterior veneer failures, granite exterior veneer failures, slate exterior veneer failures, sandstone exterior veneer failures, travertine exterior veneer failures and other types of stone exterior facade failures must be installed correctly. Ceramic Tile  Industry standards and building codes and Stone Industry Standards and building codes must be followed to avoide tile failures.  The tile installer’s standard of care or the stone installer’s standard of care must meet the tile industry standards to avoid tile failures.   Click here for the article.
