Look no further for a facelift for your house. The classic look of brick adds instant appeal to your home and gives it a whole new facet of intrigue. Now this option has been made available in a cheaper and less stressful alternative, a faux brick veneer. The versatility and class of a thin brick veneer is an easier way to give your house the unique look of traditional brick without having to spend a whole lot of money. There is no need to tear down any walls or alter your home, because a faux brick veneer can be applied to your already existing walls, avoiding the hassle of home construction. These veneers are able to be customized in so many ways, and this gives you an endless list of options.

The variability and adaptive qualities of a faux brick application make it an easy addition to your home's interior or exterior. Available in a variety of colors, feels, looks, and styles make it able to be completely customized to your individual conception. If you're looking for the old New England red brick church or the traditional appearance of a city hall, you are free to choose from an array of styles. Providing great value and even better aesthetics, faux brick requires no tearing down of walls and the costs that come with it.

DIY projects can be very intimidating. After last summer's "treehouse for the kids" fiasco, you'd be happy to never set your hands on another home project. If this is the case, there are professionals that can help you apply your new faux brick walls. However, if you're willing to give DIY another try, faux brick is amazingly quick and easy to apply. Since it's only a veneer, very little construction work is required, reducing the difficulty and duration of application. Having the same qualities as it's traditional cousin, faux brick is made with genuine clay and baked in an oven. The only difference between faux and traditional brick is the size. Faux bricks are much smaller, and since it is so much more lightweight, faux brick costs less and requires less effort to apply. By investing in this less expensive substitute, you can avoid all the hassle that seems to come with the more cumbersome traditional bricks. Aside from being more cumbersome, traditionally sized bricks are generally more brittle, resulting in damages from their application.

By going on the computer or asking some of your more home-decorator minded friends, deciding how and where to apply your faux brick walls can become much easier. With so many terms in an architect's vocabulary, the task of deciding on the perfect place for your faux brick can be  pretty intimidating. Go online and learn a few words and apply them directly to your home. Being able to talk about exactly where you want your faux brick will help create the exact results you are looking for.

Your home can have the classic look of old brick buildings without the hassle of having to hire anyone or spend a whole lot of money. With only a few touches your home can get an instant makeover, and with the ease and convenience of a faux brick wall, it is easier than it has ever been. You are sure to love these brick panels.
