New York’s Leading Resource for Thin Brick and Brick Veneer
Thin brick is a masonry veneer of low weight used on exterior and interior walls of homes and commercial buildings to present the look of traditional brick at a more affordable cost and lower impact to the environment. Thin brick, which is sometimes called faux brick, is made in the same manner as traditional brick. Thin brick is authentic brick, it is simply made or cut thinner. As only a portion of the brick is used, the expense related to thin brick is usually more affordable than traditional full-thickness brick.
Thin brick is also easier to install than standard full-thickness brick. In comparison to other building materials, thin brick is deemed more visually appealing by most people, and it requires less maintenance and is more durable than siding like vinyl, wood or metal. Siding made of metal is prone to dents and can fade over time. Wood siding will need to be painted frequently, and does not stand up to inclement weather well. Thin brick has also proven to be more durable than vinyl, and is less likely to puncture.
It should be noted that brick veneer is a lighter covering application used primarily for looks. Thin brick is not to be used as a load bearing material and will not help a building’s structural integrity. However, thin brick walls are self-supporting, placing zero additional burden on the structural components of the building. As the veneer walls are not structural, they can be introduced after the structure’s roof and walls, with out the costly brick ledge that is required for full brick. This provides a great deal of flexibility for builders in Caneadea.
Historically, the two basic methods for installing thin brick siding were the anchored system and the adhered system. The anchored system relies on angle brackets or brick ties to attache the brick veneer wall to a building’s structural frame. The adhered system employs a small layer of mortar to attach the brick veneer to the frame and does not require using brick ties or anchors. These old-fashioned methods for installing thin brick are becoming out-dated thanks to our EZ Wall® Engineered Thin Brick System. The E-Z Wall System is easy and fast to install and incorporates heavy-duty panels to provide the most strength and durability offered from a thin brick installation technique.
Although installing brick veneer is easier than a regular brick wall, it is not recommended as a job for non-experienced contractors or homeowners. All of the contractors that Ambrico refers have successfully finished the Ambrico EZ-Wall certification process, ran by the United States Thin Masonry Association (USTMA). We will be happy to help in all thin brick projects in Caneadea.
Ambrico’s EZ Wall System is a great choice for replacing the existing appearance of a structure since it can be applied to structures built with just about every type of siding, such as vinyl, aluminum or wood.
