“Brick Veneer” is a word that usually gives a mental picture of a house made of brick. It is accurate but at the same time it is also inaccurate. A brick veneer wall that has been correctly put in place will have the same appearance as a house made of brick. The problem here is that because both homes appear the same to an untrained eye, many people do not really know that they are completely different. A brick house uses bricks as its support while a house made with brick veneers will exist for the purpose of outward appearance.
Here are some reasons why homeowners will use stone veneers brick wall.
- Changes the look of your home:
As said earlier, brick veneer is used to give passers by the impression that the home is made of brick. The house will have a way of supporting itself but the veneer will make it appear as though the house is made of brick. Homeowners looking for a new variety use this to make appreciable changes by making basically one adjustment.
- It is easier to install:
The bricks which make up a building made of solid bricks require the brick to be used during the construction stage. The bricks give stability and support to the house and the house will not exist without them. Veneer brick is similar to adding a garden or something similar as an accessory to the building. It does not require any knowledge of bricklaying to be installed, what is required is ambition. It is a suitable project for any home owner who loves the idea of being creative.
- It is relatively inexpensive:
A house made solely from solid bricks is more likely to have a higher cost. Brick veneer covers the already existing walls. Veneer brick is relatively less expensive in terms of price due to the amount of raw materials required. Home owners who do not have expensive tools can afford an attractive layout without spending much money buying bricks.
Aside the fact that people get it twisted sometimes, a solid brick wall and a brick veneer wall are completely different from each other. A solid brick house requires bricks to remain standing and maintain shape. The house will have no support whatsoever without the bricks. A veneer wall differs in this regard because it will give observers the illusion that the building is made of bricks when actually it is using the bricks for aesthetic purpose.
