    Hi,

    My house has been painted by the previous owners and I am looking to reskin the property with brickwork to make it look a lot better. I don't want to render as I don't like the look of this.

    This means having slivers of brick glued to the front.

    Does anyone know of the pros and cons of doing this?

    Thanks

    As someone with a bit of refurbishment experience, I'd say dont do it.
    Dont ever use brick slips or Faux stone on your outside walls.
    Stick with what you've got or get advice from the painter's forum for improving the existing paint job.
