Las Vegas’s Leading Resource for Brick Veneer and Thin Brick
Thin brick is a masonry veneer of low weight used on interior and exterior walls of buildings and residences to offer the appearance of traditional brick at a more affordable cost and lower impact to the environment. Thin brick, which is also known as faux brick, is made in the same manner as traditional brick. Thin brick is real brick, it’s just made or cut thinner. Made with only a portion of the components of most bricks, the cost of thin brick is always more affordable than traditional full-thickness bricks.
Another advantage is that installation is easier with thin brick. In comparison to other building materials, brick veneer is deemed more visually appealing by most people, and it requires less maintenance and is more durable than metal, wood, or vinyl siding. Siding made of metal tends to fade or get dented over time. Siding with wood is affected greatly by adverse weather, and will require painting at some point. When tested against vinyl siding, brick veneer proved to be more durable and less likely to puncture.
It should be noted that brick veneer is a lightweight covering application primarily used for looks. Thin brick should not be used as a load bearing material and will not aid in a building’s structural strength. Brick Veneer walls are, however self-supporting, putting no added burden on the structural components of the building. As the veneer walls are non-structural, they can be initiated after the building’s roof and walls, with out an expensive brick ledge which is required for full brick. This provides a great deal of flexibility for builders in Las Vegas.
Historically, the two primary techniques for installing thin brick siding were the anchored system and the adhered system. The anchored system relies on brick ties or angle brackets to anchor the brick veneer wall to a building’s structural framing. The adhered system requires a light layer of mortar to attach the brick veneer to the structure and does not require using anchors or brick ties. These traditional ways of 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 features sturdy panels that give the most strength and durability offered from a thin brick installation method.
Although thin brick installation 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 we refer have successfully completed the Ambrico EZ-Wall certification process, offered by the United States Thin Masonry Association (USTMA). We will be happy to help in all thin brick projects in Las Vegas.
