Find Out if Thin Brick is the Right Choice for Your Sioux Falls Building or Home
Thin brick is a masonry veneer of low weight applied to exterior and interior walls of buildings and residences to present the look of traditional brick at a more affordable cost and with less environmental impact. Thin brick, which is also known as faux brick, is made from a combination of clay, gravel and cement. Thin brick is authentic brick, it is just cut or made thinner. As only a portion of the brick is used, the cost of thin brick is usually more affordable than traditional full-thickness bricks.
Installation is also easier with thin brick than traditional brick. When comparing to other buidling materials, thin brick is not only more aesthetically pleasing, but it’s durable and requires less maintenance than metal, wood, or vinyl siding. Metal siding is prone to dents and can fade with time. Wood siding 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 thin brick is a lighter surface material primarily used for looks. Thin brick should not be considered a load bearing product and will not improve a wall’s structural integrity. However, thin brick walls are self-supporting, placing zero added stress on the building’s structural components. As the veneer walls are not structural, they can be initiated after the building’s roof and walls, with out an expensive brick ledge which is required for traditional brick. This provides a great deal of flexibility for builders in Sioux Falls.
In years past, the two primary techniques for installing thin brick walls were either adhered or anchored systems. The anchored system relies on angle brackets or brick ties to anchor the thin brick wall to a building’s structural framing. The adhered system employs a thin layer of mortar to attach the brick veneer to the frame and does not require using anchors or brick ties. These old-fashioned methods for installing thin brick are becoming obsolete thanks to our EZ Wall® Engineered Thin Brick System. The EZ Wall System is fast and easy to install and incorporates robust panels to provide the most durability and strength 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 professionals that Ambrico refers have successfully completed our EZ-Wall certification process, offered by the United States Thin Masonry Association (USTMA). We will be happy to help in all thin brick installs in Sioux Falls.
Ambrico’s EZ Wall System is an ideal solution for replacing the existing appearance of a wall since it can be put on structures built with just about every type of siding, such as vinyl, aluminum or wood.
