Brick is a construction material that has been utilized by builders for centuries. Modern homeowners often want to take advantage of the elegance and style brick can offer, but some homeowners are hesitant to take on the maintenance a brick building requires.
Brick will need to be repaired and maintained meticulously to ensure that a home's exterior doesn't start to deteriorate. If you want the look of brick without all the work, then brick veneers might be a great option.
1. Authentic Appearance
Some homeowners shy away from brick veneer because of the misconception that these products look fake. The truth is that technology in the production of brick veneers has come a long way in recent years.
Actual clay and shale are utilized to create modern brick veneers. These materials mimic the appearance and texture of actual brick, which ensures that your home's aesthetic will be enhanced by the addition of brick veneers.
Another key advantage that you will enjoy when you opt to go with brick veneers for your home is the lightweight design veneers can offer. Traditional brick is very heavy once it has been installed.
It is often necessary to reinforce walls and provide other types of structural support when brick is being added to a home in order to support the additional weight of the brick.
Veneers consist of only a very thin layer of clay and shale. This significantly reduces the weight of the stone product and eliminates the need for costly upgrades to your home's structure in order to achieve the brick exterior of your dreams.
3. Insulation Value
Modern homeowners not only want their residences to look great, they want them to be energy efficient as well. Brick veneer can help improve the energy efficiency of any residential property.
Unlike full-bed brick that might allow heat transfer to occur, brick veneers are backed by an insulating material that is virtually impenetrable. Heat transfer between your home's interior and the surrounding environment will be reduced. This reduces the workload of your HVAC system and help keep heating and cooling costs low.
The insulation properties offered by brick veneers help to make them an attractive option for modern homeowners.
If you are thinking of updating your home's exterior, consider the use of brick veneers. These products can help you achieve the iconic character and elegance of a brick home without sacrificing energy efficiency or breaking the bank. Contact a Moderra Brick Distributor to learn more.Share

Hi there, my name is Amanda O'Leary. I have traveled all around the world, with most of my time spent in north Africa and southeast Asia, but I have set foot in every major region of the world. I recommend that literally everyone else do the same. Experiencing such a broad range of cultures can really change your outlook on life. One thing I have noticed is that international businesses still struggle to market to foreigners. Because this is a topic that I am passionate about, I have decided to create a blog designed to help businesses bring their products and brands overseas in a manner that will be culturally sensitive and highly profitable.
