The term “brick veneer” creates a mental image of a house made of brick. This is correct and incorrect at the same time. A brick veneer wall that is correctly placed will look the same as a building that is made of brick. The challenge here is that both homes will appear the same to an untrained eye and so it is difficult for most people to differentiate between them. A brick house is supported by bricks while a house with brick veneer installed uses it for the sake of external aesthetics alone.
Another choice for homes would be stone veneer which offers the same structural integrity and value that goes with the installation of natural stone or brick; it cost about one-half of what it will cost to install brick veneer. Here are some reasons why home owners will prefer veneer brick wall.
Installation Is Very Easy:
The brick that makes a house which is made from solid brick requires the brick to be available during construction. The brick from Shouldice Designer Stone offers support and stability to the house and without them the building cannot stand. Veneer brick is similar to adding a garden or any feature of a house in the sense that it can be installed at any point after building the house. It requires no background in bricklaying to install; only your willingness is required. It is ideal for any homeowner who considers the idea of doing things himself.
Alters The Appearance Of Your Home:
Brick veneer is used to give passers by the impression that the house is made of brick. The building will have its own means of supporting itself but the veneer will make it look like the house was made of brick. Home owners who are seeking for something different use this very often to provide significant changes by doing basically only one real adjustment.
It Is Not Expensive:
A home built completely from solid brick usually cost more. Brick veneer covers basically the walls which already exist. For this reason and also the amount of raw materials required, brick veneer is relatively inexpensive in terms of price. A home owner who does not have a lot of expensive tools can have an appealing appearance without having to spend too much in buying bricks.
In spite of the fact that people can very often get it twisted, a solid brick wall and a brick veneer wall are two entirely different things. A solid brick house requires the bricks to remain solid and firm. The house will have absolutely no support without the bricks. A veneer wall only serves the purpose of giving observers the impression that the house is made of bricks, the house will only be using the bricks for aesthetic purposes.
Brick veneer is valuable to any home as it entirely changes the appearance of a home: it is not expensive to buy and it is not difficult to install. A person who is inclined to doing things himself and has no background in bricklaying or any related profession can easily install the bricks.
