While stucco is a traditional process of applying waterproof felt paper, wire lath, and a typical three coat process ("scratch, brown, and finish"), there are many details that make for a successful stucco installation. Details associated with proper application of paper, nails, and flashing are critical to waterproofing. For high quality finishing, skilled craftsman are crucial a poor stucco finishing job looks awful. Selecting the right finishing details for trim (stucco foam) can make a dramatic difference in the final outcome of the project. The selection of the finish texture, as well as material for the finish coat are of paramount importance. Many homeowners choose to upgrade the finish coat from the standard "La Habra" stucco finish, to a textured elastomeric finish that provides texture, color, waterproofing, and resistance against cracks. Frequently minor structural changes can me made to change the architectural features of the house.

•Face brick is the most expensive type, but it offers the smoothest and highest-quality appearance. Building brick is a lower-grade material designed for structural use and is generally not exposed. Brick veneer is a low-cost alternative made from thin, lightweight pieces of brick material. Brick pavers are thin, flat stones used in outdoor applications like hardscapes and patios. They are much harder and denser than other types of brick, which allows them to withstand foot traffic and heavy use.
•Brick is available in a wide variety of colors and textures and may be made from concrete or fired clay. The color of a brick depends on the source of the materials used in its fabrication. A standard-size brick measures three and five-eighths inches by two and one-quarter inches by eight inches, though sizes may vary internationally. Building brick is equipped with holes to reduce weight and to allow for faster installation.
Most other brick varieties are solid. Face brick is categorized as Indoor Use Only, Severe Weathering (SW) or Moderate Weathering (MW). Severe Weathering brick can withstand extreme temperatures without cracking, while Moderate Weathering brick can withstand common temperature variations in most climate zones. Some pavers may also come with SW or MW ratings.
•Brick structures are very durable and long-lasting and require little to no maintenance. They tend to have a desirable appearance without the need for paints, seals or other finishes. Brick is also a fairly classic material that can adapt to changing trends and decors. In addition, brick is highly resistant to flames and helps prevent the spread of fire in the home.
•There are two basic methods of brick installation used in residential applications. The brick may be used as a structural component or as a veneer. Structural brick walls are load-bearing and are part of the building's framing system. Modifying or removing one of these walls would impact the integrity and safety of the building. Veneer walls have no impact on the framing of the home and only bear the weight of the veneer itself. They are separated from the house structure by an air space, which often contains insulation and moisture barriers. The veneer is tied to the house using brick ties or other fasteners for stabilization but is fully self-supporting when it comes to structural load.
