Find Out if Thin Brick is the Right Choice for Your Springfield Building or Home
Thin brick is a masonry veneer of low weight applied to exterior and interior walls of homes and commercial buildings to present the look of traditional brick at a more affordable cost and with less environmental impact. Thin brick, which is sometimes called brick veneer, is made from a combination of clay, gravel and cement. Thin brick is authentic brick, it is just made or cut thinner. As only a part of the regular brick is used, the expense related to thin brick is always more affordable than traditional full-thickness bricks.
Thin brick is also easier to install than standard full-thickness brick. When comparing to other buidling materials, thin brick is not only more aesthetically pleasing, but it requires less maintenance and is more durable than siding like vinyl, wood or metal. 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 thin brick is a lighter covering application primarily used for looks. Thin brick should not be considered a load bearing product and will not aid in a wall’s structural strength. Brick Veneer walls are, however self-supporting, placing no additional stress on the structural components of the building. As the veneer walls are non-structural, they can be introduced after the building’s roof and walls, with out an expensive brick ledge that is required for full brick. This provides builders with a great deal of flexibility in the 97475 area.
Historically, the two basic methods for installing thin brick siding were the anchored system and the adhered system. The anchored system relies on brick ties or angle brackets to attache the thin brick wall to a building’s structural framing. The adhered system employs a small layer of mortar to attach the brick veneer to the frame and does not require the use of brick ties or anchors. These traditional methods for installing thin brick are becoming out-dated thanks to our EZ Wall® Engineered Thin Brick System. The EZ Wall System is fast and easy to install and uses sturdy panels to provide the most durability and strength offered from a thin brick installation technique.
Although thin brick installation is easier than a traditional brick wall, it is not an advisable task for amateur homeowners without professional contracting experience. All of the professionals that we use have successfully finished our EZ-Wall certification process, offered by the United States Thin Masonry Association (USTMA). We will be glad to help in all thin brick projects in Springfield.
