Thin brick customers have recently confirmed what American Brick Company (Ambrico) has known for years about installing thin brick:  the Ambrico EZ Wall® Engineered Thin Brick System is so easy to install that a child can do it.  The company recently reported that today’s high quality thin brick products are so durable and easy to work with that they can be installed quickly and easily with just a few simple steps.  Brian Burns, Ambrico’s spokesman said, “We recently had a customer tells us that the thin brick installation process was so easy that he was able to put his 5 year old son to work helping him install thin brick in his home. “  Burns joked, “While of course we don’t condone child labor, this latest feedback is just more proof that thin brick really is easy and fast to install.”

Thin brick (commonly referred to as “brick veneer”), has become an increasingly popular option for homeowners and builders who want something that is affordable and that will stand up to the environment.  Burns said, “Our customers don’t want something that they will just have to replace 5 or 10 years down the road.  With thin brick, you won’t see any cracking or fading over time and there is practically no maintenance required.  It’s an affordable solution for renovating an existing structure or for completing the facade of a new building.”

In addition to selling the EZ Wall® System for homeowners and builders who want to take advantage of the classic look of thin brick, Ambrico performs thin brick installations on new buildings and on building renovations, with projects recently completed for hotels, sports arenas, restaurants and office buildings.  The company sells the most popular designs from bestselling thin brick brands such as Clover Creek Brick, Glen-Gery Brick, Metro brick and others, at the company’s showroom in Warren, Michigan.

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.   For more information, please visit
