Hello All, I built my home in '05 and made the mistake of using masonite siding. I'm now reaping some of the issues (rot), and of course continuous paint/pressure washing blah blah (I wanted brick from the jump but the wife didn't ). So I'm looking into having the home bricked up. I haven't contacted any masons yet, but I'm hoping for a little info before I do. I know I'll have to have a new footer for the brick to sit on. I live in SC does anyone have an idea of the size footer needed for this? Does the old siding need to come off and if so I assume I OSB should go on in place? What about digging the footer around water, telcomm, gas? My house is a two story with covered porch and deck so there's roofing is there a way to brick that of put a fascia to look like the rest of the home? What other headaches am I probably looking at? All three of my hvac units are right against the brick curtain now so I assume I'll have to have them moved and re-connected? Thanks in advance.
