    Default Brick siding?

    Other than "broken" what is this type of siding called? Half face, lick and stick?

    Stucco scored to provide a brick-like appearance.

    The stucco is applied, sometimes with a different final coat, then the still-soft stucco is scored (cut through) to reveal the underlying stucco and color in to create a 'mortar-looking' joint.

    The also do stucco that same way to resemble rock and stone facings.

    Thanks Jerry. If it had been in good condition, I don't know if I would have known it was not brick veneer.

    I've always referred as "Brickface", which as stated is scored stucco.
    What is under it?

    I think it is used in the NY-NJ area, maybe elsewhere, in company names such as "XXX Brickface Company". Some do very heavy advertizing resulting in the slang "Brickface" for a stucco finish that looks like brick.

    We have a similiar type of brick like coating on our rowhouses. It even fooled an insurance inspector. What do they use to score the stucco to make the mortar rows? It looks so even on ours.

    Looks like a painted brick veneer panel system.
