weatherboard adding over brick

Hi, 

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 😊

Hi @georgie
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
Cheers
Chris

Hi @georgie,

 

Let me tag @2Belindas for you to see if she has had any experience cladding over brick in her renovation work. You might also be interested in discussions like this one about rendering as an option.
