Home siding isn’t just to make your home look good – it insulates and protects your home and helps determines its energy efficiency. So when you’re renovating your home, how do you decide what to use on the outside? Most of the time, you’re limited on what you can use on your home. If you have a slab or pier and beam foundation, you wouldn’t be able to use brick or stone without adding additional footings.
That’s where Brickstone comes in to play.
Brickstone was created by Martin Bomba’s grandfather here in San Antonio in 1947. Martin now owns Window World TX and has made Brickstone a Window World TX service. It’s a non-structural external layer of stonework that can be installed to any wall on any foundation – since it’s bears no weight. Brickstone is compatible with wood, metal, brick, asbestos, stucco and more. It can even be applied to manufactured homes as a skirt or on the entire house.
Brickstone siding is applied by hand in a four-step application process, Brickstone can be stained and textured to achieve almost any kind of stone or brick you want. This material is fireproof and impenetrable by hail, making it one of the most durable siding products on the market. It’s also unaffected by wind, rain or salt, meaning it’s a good option for homes along the coast. Brickstone also creates a large, air infiltration barrier around your home, making it as energy efficient as possible – saving you money in the long run.
