Covering Romex on Brickwork

I just recently screened in my patio in the back of the house. I would like to install some outlets on the brickwork to the house.

I intend to run romex through the eaves and wire into j-boxes in the attic.

Aside from plastic or metal conduit, is there anything else that I could use to conceal the romex running down along the brickwork and into the outlet box ??

I will be using outdoor boxes as well for the receptacles.

Any opinions are much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ray

You had better find a different type of cable. NM is not allowed outdoors.

Unfortunately, once outside,the wireing methods are very limited.
After a while you become creative on how to make a bad thing un-noticeable. Stop think and plan. you will succeed.
More so, Your friends will never notice (plug the radio in, their happy), after a while it all blends in.You WILL be the only one who cares.
