Brick Makeover Stone Veneer - Before

From the time we met with the clients to the time the project was completed was about 6 weeks and the project was completed before the company arrived.

Our Process

Olde Ledge Stone has longer and more textured pieces of stone which are very attractive on one story homes. The monochromatic color of the Smoke color worked very well with the Royal Blue siding.

We did need to saw cut the brick on the corners at the front door and the windows. A skim coat of mortar was applied to the existing brick before the stone was hand installed with a mortar joint.
