Brick a house


I have a small house I rent that I would like brick. It is on a slab, but the slab doesn't extend any more than what is built onto it now. The exterior is mostly masonite (lap siding). It is 2 story, so I may only be able to brick so far and then have to finish with vinyl siding.

How do you brick an existing house?

You can use either thin brick over stucco, pour a brickledge, or attach an angle to the foundation.

I would like something as soundproof and secure as I can get, sounds like pouring a brickledge is what I need.. I don't know what attach an angle to the foundation' means..

How deep/wide? How do you secure the bricks to the wall? Do I remove the masonite first? Do I need to add a housewrap first?

Thanks
