Peter Bracey is often asked what can be done to dress up the foundations below the new Palliside cladding renovation!
Here are a few suggestions of the treatments you can add to this section of your home to give it a face lift to complement the Palliside cladding:
- You can clean the brick foundation using diluted Muriatic acid,available at hardware stores.But read the instructions before using!
- You can clean the bricks ,as above and paint them in the same colour as the Palliside weatherboard cladding,or a different or complimentary colour.
- You can clad the bricks in sawn sandstone tiles or rough hewn sandstone tiles. A wall and floor tiler can perform this job or if you are handy you can do it your self.
- Brick pillars can be also be clad in sandstone tiles.
Most tile suppliers carry sandstone cladding.
Use original sandstone not a composite material as it looks fake!
When renovating remember quality is everything and your renovation will never date!
The following photos show different treatments used.
