Drawing shows Siding Of Schist Veneer Bricks

  • Note: Stone Veneer Bricks have the veneer only on the visible outer face. The corner brick differs from the standard brick as it has veneer on the end as well, as both the end and the main face of the brick are visible. Also every second course is offset by half a brick to keep the pattern random. This results in eight different bricks that need to be scheduled.

    Exact Roofing schedules the bricks and generates a colored printout showing where the bricks are placed.
