ABC Installation Services has completed the renovation of a building in Oak Park by employing thin brick products from the American Brick Company (Ambrico) and Coronado. The building’s outmoded exterior was originally built with clay bricks.
The effect of aging on the building exterior was clearly visible with bricks becoming unseated and development of cracks in the bricks. ABC gave a complete makeover to the outer portion of the building by replacing the original bricks with thin bricks by making use of Ambrico’s thin brick installation system, the EZ-Wall.
Brian Burns, spokesperson for Ambrico, stated that thin brick installations help achieve an impressive look without compromising on durability and cost. He also highlighted the other benefits of thin brick installations such as low maintenance and elimination of major structural changes. Burns recommended the engagement of professionals from Ambrico and ABC Installation for thin brick renovations of buildings.
