Veneer is a word used to describe the act of using a thin layer of an attractive material to cover a cheaper or coarser one. Using thin bricks to veneer walls, floors and ceilings around the home, office or workspace is an ideal way to make the space more pleasing to the eye. As mentioned, thin bricks can be used to veneer walls, both interior and exterior; they can be used to veneer floors, again, both interior and exterior and they are light enough to be able to veneer ceilings.
A thin brick veneer beats other materials such as wood and plastic due to their durability. This makes them ideal to veneer hallways and entryways, kitchens, bathrooms, wine cellars and patios. Restaurants and hotels are just two examples of where there is a large demand for a veneer that provides durability and is easy to clean.
Our standard brick tiles are ½ an inch thick but we can go down to ¼ of an inch if necessary. This means that interior walls can be veneered without the need to remove existing door trims and baseboards; similarly, when applying a thin brick veneer to exterior walls, windows can remain in situ. Another reason to choose a thin brick veneer is the fact that they can be fixed to a variety of backing substrates. The most common of these is directly adhering them to a substrate of a scratch and brown stucco system. Thin Brick tiles can also be used to veneer cement board, metal panels, concrete, both poured in place and premade units and other Cementous substrates.
Of course, the main reason to use thin bricks is to decorate a space and give it character and charm. All of our thin bricks are unique which is one of the benefits of choosing our handmade tiles.
