New stone or capping for porch ledge?
I have an older home that has what I think is a concrete ledge on top of brick. It's about 10.5" wide. It's cracked in a few places. I was given the option of either stablizing it and then capping it with metal, or removing it and replacing it with a white granite which of course is more.
Does the metal capping hold up over the years? Does the granite crack from freeze and thaw cycles? Any synthetic matterial that resembles stone that holds up better that's on the market? We are in NY.
Would appreciate any advice as I know nothing about this at all. Thanks!
