How can I give my home’s exterior a quick “facelift?”

30 September 2011

Just as crown molding and chair rails can dress up a room inside your home, decorative brick or stone veneer can put a fancy finishing touch on the exterior of the house.

Adding architectural details like contrasting trim around windows and doors can add value and curb appeal to your home during a time when you might not be in the mood to spend a lot of money to completely change its look.

Veneer is thinner—half an inch to an inch thick compared with around four inches for standard brick—and lighter-weight than full brick or stone, so it can be easier for the do-it-yourselfer to work with.
