Brick VeneerIn places where real brick is used to construct homes, brick veneer can still be used as a siding. Though it actually is real masonry, this single-layer application overlays the framework of the structure. The siding is affixed to the exterior walls with the use of a metal ties that allow for a very small gap in between the existing wall & the façade. This small air-filled gap is what acts as an insolent. Brick Veneer is fireproof and durable and it can potentially save you a certain amount of money on insurance premiums. In addition, you end up saving a significant amount of money over the years, you do not have to paint or stain your home and it will look beautiful for decades. This makes it a hassle-free siding option.
Stone VeneerThis is made up of a mixture of various natural materials such as lightweight aggregates, Portland cement & iron oxide pigments. During the fabrication process, all these materials become an integral part of the stone. This mixture is them cast in molds that are taken from various stone and this is what gives them a very realistic stone look. In addition, when you use natural stone in a structure, many footings and wall ties are required. This makes the installation complex and expensive.
On the other hand stone veneer is available in a range of colors, styles and textures and it looks very much like the real thing. This material is also around 50% lower in cost, compared to natural stone and it weighs almost 75% less than the latter does. This makes installation quicker and it also reduces the number of structural supports that are required.
