Brick vs siding

My neighbor has a gorgeous brick ranch and they are now siding it.

I don't think they are taking the bricks off, just putting siding over it.

I would never think to do that.

I just think it's strange.

Re: Brick vs siding

I would never think to do it either. Brick houses are so beautiful.

Unless the brick is in terrible shape, I would never do that. I prefer brick over everything.

Re: Brick vs siding

I definitely prefer brick. But I do know that they can side over anything!

Re: Brick vs siding

I personally hate the look of brick, but I'm not sure if I would side over it. Is the whole house brick? If so, then I probably would....

The funny thing is, even though I really don't like brick, I LOVE the stone look on my house. It's almost a brick look.... go figure... Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

I'd NEVER do that!! OMG that's like a sin in my family LOL

I can see siding a dormer, but not to put it over the brick on a house! They'd be better off getting it re-pointed!
