The Advantages of Using Brick or Stone Siding

Choosing brick or stone siding for your new dream home!

If you are making the choice to build your home rather than buy an existing home on the market, you will have more control over what products and finishes go into the design. The siding that you choose will have a major impact on the overall appearance and style of your home. When you build, you can opt for traditional siding options, or choose something that gives your home additional durability and character. At Donald A. Gardner Architects, we have large selection of homes with brick or stone exterior options that can meet your needs and preferences.

What to Expect With Brick and Stone Siding Options

Why should you consider brick or stone for your home’s siding? First, these siding options have incredible durability and longevity. Brick and stone are much more resilient than other siding options. Many homes built over 100 years ago still have their original brick or stone siding. These options work well in all climates, and rarely are damaged by hail or wind.

A second reason to consider stone or brick for your home’s siding is the overall look of the home. Stone or brick offers a high-end look and with the manufactured options that are available, it doesn’t have to break your budget. The Harrison is a Craftsman design with a mix of cedar shakes and stone siding. This combination creates exceptional curb-appeal with an interesting mix of color and texture.

Finally, brick or stone siding is ideal because of its low-maintenance nature. You never have to repaint brick or stone. Plus, wear is minimal, even after decades of use. All the maintenance necessary for most brick or stone is the occasional power washing to remove built-up grime.
