Brick & Stucco Siding

Expert advice on how to buy, install, and repair brick and stucco siding, including helpful diagrams of typical brick, masonry and stucco construction.

Because of their solid appearance and high durability, brick, stucco, and other masonry materials make extremely popular home-siding materials. Several types of masonry siding materials exist, but by far the most common are brick and stone veneers, traditional cement-based stucco, and newer stucco-like polymer finishes called “EIFS” (short for Exterior Insulation Finishing System).

In this section of HomeTips, you will get information on how to choose new masonry siding as well as help with repairs and maintenance.
