Brick siding offers clever new installation systems
Brick as a choice for siding offers handsome colors ranging from traditional red, to stone, to earthy blends. What's new is that today's light-weight bricks have ingenious installation systems that are often simple enough for a carpenter or capable homeowner to handle. These sidings are installed over energy-efficient standard walls. Of course you can still use a full-sized brick if you prefer it and don't mind the expense of new footings. But before you decide, look at the new systems, which use thin, genuine bricks and beautifully-engineered mounting mechanisms.
A few examples: NovaBrik® is a mortarless system in which a higher brick locks onto the hidden, sloped-up, integral nailing flange below. EZWall®, BRIK-IT® and Tru-Brix® have wall-mounted metal strips, panels or railings for fast, precise work. Installation solutions abound. You can be sure there's a beautiful, affordable brick siding to enhance your home.
