Buildings with other siding products such as wood, vinyl or aluminum may not have the footings, foundations or lintels to accommodate full-face brick masonry. The VersaThin line requires no special foundations, supports or footings, so it can be used where full-face brick cannot. Consider VersaThin your best thin brick choice for both residential and commercial applications.a timeless medium
All our brick, full-face and thin, is made primarily from local, natural, non-toxic elements from the earth—sand, gravel, crushed stone and clay. Brick is not flammable, will not react with other materials and does not release chemicals into its surroundings.
At Hanson Brick, our manufacturing process re-uses all the waste we create, so we don’t contribute to unproductive landfills. Because brick lasts indefinitely, it has no life cycle end. It can either be recycled or repurposed into other useful materials like kitty litter, backfill/aggregates, and even landscaping materials
for tennis courts, baseball fields and flower beds.

The VersaThin line of thin brick is made from real clay brick, a far superior product than faux brick, brick tile or simulated brick siding.
