Recently, a hotel project in Des Moines, an element of the riverfront renovation, has been sanctioned to utilize thin bricks or brick veneer over clay bricks. The thin bricks are considered to be cost effective and will help trim down the cost of riverfront renovation.
The American brick (Ambrico) has informed that thin bricks have won the argument once again to replace conventional clay bricks or thick bricks in the construction industry.
Brian Burns, the spokesperson of Ambrico, said that the company is happy over the selection of thin bricks in the Des Moines hotel project. Both the city council and the native construction company have accepted that thin bricks are inexpensive and have long life when compared to thick bricks.
While the debate for the usage of thin bricks continues, the company has observed that the usage of thin bricks, including the Des Moines project, has improved. In present times, everyone is concerned about a better economical outcome. The requirement for bricks that do not fade and crack over the years has increased. With proper installation, the low-maintenance thin bricks are durable and will have better appearance for many years to come.
Ambrico focuses on the production, installation and marketing of thin bricks including its own product EZ Wall. The company provides information to customers interested in learning about the installation of brick veneers.
