Brick Veneer and Stone Veneer Replicate Nature’s Stone

Exposed brick or stone walls or accents on an exterior is a look that exudes luxury and stateliness. Achieving such a look is easy when you use stone or brick veneers that are an inexpensive alternative to real brick or stone. As well, these veneers are lightweight and capable of being installed as a DIY project.

Easy to Install Brick and Stone Veneer, and Easy to Handle

While brick veneer is only approximately three quarters of an inch thick and stone veneer is only one and a half to two inches at most, their real brick and stone counterparts can be more than four inches thick making them extremely heavy. Not only will the difference in thickness affect your ultimate floor space, but delivery and installation costs will differ as well. Notably, brick and stone veneers are environmentally favourable alternatives to the real thing, as having lower carbon footprints in manufacture and installation.

Full brick or stone veneer designs

When you want the look of a full brick or stone wall or accent but without the weight, a brick or stone veneer is the best choice. Most veneers can be installed directly over existing materials. A brick or stone veneer is a perfect option when you want to update and change an specific area of your home in an instant. The beauty of an exposed brick wall can be easily achieved with an antique brick veneer. In this way you can create the look of an authentic brick wall that has been there for years and will be there for many more with brick veneer. It is best though to check with your local building code and consult a professional for the correct installation.
