Big Companies Going Green with Ambrico Thin Brick Installation

Ambrico thin brick installations becoming increasingly popular with those looking for affordable, environmentally friendly building solutions.

WARREN, MI, February 09, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ — American Brick Company (Ambrico), brick suppliers and installation experts, have reported that more companies are choosing thin brick installations as an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional brick products. The company, who specializes in the Ambrico E-Z Wall System, report that their exterior stone veneer, brick veneer siding and other thin brick products are made from natural materials that look as good as traditional brick. Unlike regular bricks, thin brick products are typically made out of fired clay or concrete and airbrushed with a polyester resin to give the look of actual stone.

Ambrico has seen an increasing number of requests for environmentally-friendly building options that are both attractive and affordable. Recent high-profile thin brick installations have included well-known clients like McDonalds and the NFL, along with large hospitals and corporate buildings. Companies who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint often select thin brick due to the authentic look of faux brick siding and veneers. The faux brick and thin brick veneer products used by Ambrico in its professional installations are made up of 40% to 100% recycled materials. These products, when compared with traditional full-size bricks have a substantially lower environmental impact, making them a highly sustainable, eco-friendly building material.

Working in the area of thin brick installation for nearly 50 years, Ambrico has seen the number of requests for this type of product dramatically increase in recent years, thanks in part to the product’s affordability and environmentally friendly features. Thin brick products are known for retaining their great look for many years and can be installed quickly and efficiently.
