Summary: American Brick Company (Ambrico) reports that more and more builders and contractors are depending on thin brick products for their projects, as the importance of finding economical and environmentally sound solutions has increased throughout the construction industry.
Warren, MI , August 2011– Thin brick installations hit an all-time high this summer, as builders and contractors continue to look for building solutions that are both environmentally sound and affordable. American Brick Company (Ambrico) reports that the popularity of thin brick has been growing steadily in the last ten years, as more attention is being paid to finding economical solutions to building renovations and new construction projects.
According to the experts at Ambrico, thin brick, also known as “faux brick”, can be used in just about any type of construction project, from homes and business parks, to sports arenas and hospitals. Many builders prefer using thin brick over traditional brick, as it is a solid alternative to clay bricks which need to be replaced over time due to fading and cracking. Thin brick is much more durable and comes in a variety of styles and colors, offering many different options for those working on either a new construction project, or those looking to renovate an existing building façade.
Ambrico maintains a large selection of thin brick brands in the company’s showroom in Warren, including products from Clover Creek Brick Company, Glen-Gery Brick and Endicott Clay Products. The thin brick experts who staff the showroom offer consultations and advice on selecting the right thin brick product, making it easy to pick out the best option for your project. Once you have picked out your thin brick, installations can typically be completed within several hours and not the several days that traditional brick usually requires.
Headquartered in Warren, Michigan, Ambrico includes a showroom, brickyard and manufacturing facility. The company offers free estimates and information for builders and contractors interested in learning more about brick veneer installation, and also maintains a large selection of brick veneer samples to view in the state-of-the -art Ambrico showroom.
