What about stuccoing the block? Or using a concrete stain. I just did it and it looks 100% better

Ive done a few jobs on cinderblock foundation walls and have used a product called U Trowel. Its great stuff and when mixed with bonding agent stick to anything. It comes in several colors and is just troweled on. It leaves a coat of about 1/4" and has the appearence of Stucco.

You can buy brick that is about 3/4 of an inch thick. Go to your local masonary supply company and ask.

I stopped by Lee brick a few days ago and they said they do not sale thin bricks. I will call back and see if they can order some or direct me to a source. I'm new to hardscap and don't know my sources for product.

Find a local mason contractor and ask him. I would sub that type of project out to a mason contractor as it can be tricky to get veneer size things to stick to the foundation, and it will turn out better.
