Faux stone/brick for chimney
We just finished adding a second story to our house. We had to extend our chimney (but no fireplace on the addition) and our contractor and inspector told us the foundation would not support putting brick (to match the original brick) on the extension. They have told us that our only option is stucco. Does anyone know of any other option? Faux stone or brick? I think they ruled out a brick veneer because they didn't think we could match the first floor brick. Any insight helpful!
PS. I have a picture but couldn't figure out how to post it.
