Masonry veneer has just about replaced solid brick and stone walls.
Brick or stone veneer provides the same visual effect as solid brick or stone walls.
Brick or stone veneer is considered to be a facing material and does not support the weight of the building.
A masonry veneer wall will be better insulated and less expensive than a solid masonry wall.
