I think that we have definitely decided to paint our brick exterior probably. (And I think I did.) I took my camera and snapped pictures through the windows! :) (Our home before we moved in.) The boys and I jumped in the car a couple of days ago and drove through an area in Lexington that is full of older brick homes.
Start by looking at samples of your cladding choices in situ at different times of the day.
Ask your supplier if they can give you new and aged samples to see how your home will look freshly clad and a few months down the line.
Make sure the weight of your chosen cladding or render is suitable for your property, as some materials are heavier than others.
Changing your home’s exterior – even on a low budget – can improve its looks, saleability and value, but it needs to be done carefully and sympathetically.
As well as making your home look better, cladding and render protect it from the elements and even insulate it.
