Ambrico Fixes Thin Brick (video)
Thin brick experts at American Brick Company (Ambrico) recently announced the completion of a project by ABC Installation Services, which used Ambrico’s EZ-Wall® Thin Brick Installation System to correct a competitor’s failed thin brick installation. The installation was beginning to fail and show serious signs of damage, in spite of only being 7 years old. Brian Burns, Ambrico spokesman said, “When thin brick is installed correctly using high quality products, the end result should look great with minimal maintenance for many, many years. With this particular project, there was visible damage that resulted from the competitor’s installation system and that should never happen when thin brick is done right.”
Using Ambrico’s EZ-Wall thin brick system with Marion Ceramics thin brick, ABC Installation Services was hired to fix the damaged thin brick installation, which consisted of approximately 3000 sq ft. The total installation time took around 5 weeks, and included the application of a roll-on vapor barrier for added protection. Burns said, “One of the best things about thin brick products is that installation can be done quickly and easily with minimal disruption to the business. But the key is that you’ve got to use high quality products or you’ll just find yourself back at square one a few years down the road.”
The EZ- Wall thin brick installation system from Ambrico is easy to use and was designed for use on thin brick installations for new buildings and for building renovations. The company has completed thin brick installations for a variety of locations, including 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, Marion Ceramics, Metro brick and others, at the company’s showroom in Warren, Michigan.
