I have seen several old school houses that at some point were covered in a hideous looking faux brick looking asphalt shingle type material. I am sure at the time it was cost effective and seemed like a good idea but it looks terrible and covers up the original school which is what I like to see. I'm also sure it was done with good intentions to prolong the life of the building. Still, it's ugly. Just my opinion...stucco and siding covered schools will be future posts haha.
Despite their unsightly exteriors they are still schools and they still exist. Which is all that matters, since so many were torn down, moved, or dismantled.
Prepare to be schooled:
