Southeast Michigan’s American Brick Company is producing a lightweight masonry veneer that gives the appearance of traditional brick at an affordable cost with lower impact on the environment.
Thin brick, which is also known as brick veneer, is most often made from a combination of clay, gravel, and cement. And in some cases, recycled materials from aging or destroyed buildings are compounded to create Ambrico’s unique thin brick products.
Now thin brick walls can be installed on any type of cladding materials easily and efficiently by just about anyone with the help of Ambrico’s helpful instruction manual and free installation video. Veneer brick is appropriate even where the building or home has alternative-siding products like wood, aluminum, and vinyl, or do not have the footings, or door and window lintels necessary for full-thickness brick. Ambrico’s brick walls offer an affordable, easy-to-install solution for many situations with a complete catalog of texture and color options. With proper maintenance of the EZ-Wall® product, customers can enjoy their veneer brick walls with all the warmth and beauty of full-thickness brick far into the future.
Examples of the thin brick system can be found throughout the country on restaurants, homes, stores, churches, and on a multitude of interiors, too. Its extensive array of applications makes veneer brick the perfect addition to any exterior or interior space with elegance and affordability.
