I am really needing some advice about whether anyone has ever installed weatherboard cladding over their brick exterior? I love the Hamptons/Victorian/coastal look and our brick exterior is in desperate need of a revamp (they’re the old yellow 70’s coloured bricks). I’m also keen to hear whether it turned out what you expected or if you had a lot of issues with it.
Thanks in advance for any feedback 😊
You can clad over brickwork
It will require either metal or timber battens fixed to the brickwork
Consideration also needs to be given to Flashing around openings ie windows and doors, brick weep holes, waterproofing, etc
Also check with your Council regarding compliance and energy requirements
You will need to put up photos as there are numerous details, these photos will also help others
